Gingrich: A president "cannot obstruct justice"

20 June 2017

Trump is understandably ticked, he said.

"I think he's furious", Gingrich said of the president. This is what Gingrich said to Sean Hannity last night:"I don't think they're going to get the president, but they're going to get somebody, and they're going to get him for something. I know what I saw", Goldberg said. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof that I did anything with the Russians. "And now I get an independent counsel who is going to mess up at least the next year, at a minimum, and who, by the way, you'll notice is expanding his charge".

"And I said yesterday, you get two more leaks like this, Rosenstein is going to have to appoint a special counsel to investigate the special counsel", Gingrich said. Trump also nominated Gingrich's wife, Callista (left), to be the ambassador to the Vatican. On Friday he called the investigation into Trump a "witch hunt". This is an Indian hunting party. While he repeatedly said it wasn't his place to say whether Trump's actions amounted to an obstruction of justice - an impeachable offense - he said he's "sure" that Mueller would investigate if they did.

But in a Politico report from 2011, Gingrich criticized liberals for blaming conservatives over the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat who survived being shot in the head during a shooting at a constituent event in Tucson.

Gingrich's tweets marked a coming of full circle in an effort by some of Trump's most prominent allies to delegitimize the Mueller-led investigation. "His lawyer wants to take down Bob Mueller". But if you apply his words to the current situation, Gingrich is the person now going on television both to sell his book and defend his wife's boss. "They're essentially engaging in a scorched earth litigation strategy that is beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor". The "president can not obstruct justice", said Gingrich.

"His answer was that he misunderstood the question", said Speaker Gingrich, and he believes that to be true.

Gingrich's claim echoes theories posited by pro-Trump conspiracy theorists that officials within the American "deep state" - namely, people working at the FBI, CIA, and the State Department - have been working behind the scenes to bring Trump down from the inside by leaking dirt about Trump's ties to Russian Federation.
