Republican President Donald Trump threw off gullible Democrats by indicating that he was considering dismissing special counsel Robert Mueller, who is now leading the investigation into the manufactured scandal regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Democrats were outraged that Trump may seek to fire Mueller, but former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich explained to Congress why it is imperative that Mueller is let go.
Stated Newt to talk radio host John Catsimatidis, saying how Comey’s testimony will get in the way of a fair investigative process, “It’s very clear that Comey hates Trump. Comey is clearly extraordinarily hostile to Trump.”
He added, “I think Congress should now intervene, and they should abolish the independent counsel because Comey makes so clear that it’s the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the FBI director leaking to The New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation. It’s very sick.”
Newt reiterated his call for Congress to dismiss Mueller on a Fox News Sunday appearance, saying, “I think this — this is going to be a witch hunt. I think that Comey himself, by his own testimony, tainted this particular process. You have a director of the FBI deliberately leaking in order to create a special counsel, who we’re now supposed to believe is going to be this neutral figure. I think that’s just nonsense. Do you agree with Gingrich?
