Former Speaker Newt Gingrich was a guest on Laura Ingraham’s show ‘The Ingraham Angle’ on Tuesday night to discuss the ongoing Obama Deep State scandal. (Video below).
In just the last week we have learned that the Obama admin inserted spies inside the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election and used them to try to entrap Trump campaign officials in a Russia conspiracy.
Now we have Trump campaign officials speaking out saying there was more than one Obama spy inside the Trump campaign.
On Laura Ingraham‘s show ‘The Ingraham Angle‘ former House Speaker Newt Gingrich hit out at the Obama administration for the latest information revealed about spying on the Trump campaign and predicted former intelligence officials could be going to jail.
“I don’t believe that in an administration that was as tightly centralized as the Obama administration that you could have as many different things going on – all of them illegal – without the president being briefed.”
Gingrich discussed several revelations revealed over the last few days including an FBI informant who had contacts with members of the Trump campaign, Gingrich noted how the Obama admin officials kept information hidden from the American public.
Newt reacted to a clip of James Clapper on ABC’s “The View” saying he didn’t lie under oath and didn’t like using the term “spying.”
Gingrich said he was “astounded at how bad he looks now” and how the man that he has known for years now looks so “dishonest and incompetent.”
“He was a great public servant for many, many years,” he told Ingraham. “But when the director — former director of intelligence tells you he doesn’t like to use the word ‘spying’… I mean think about it. He was the Director of National Intelligence! What do you think he was in charge of doing?!? He was in charge of spying!”
Gingrich pointed out, these actions were committed under Obama’s watch, with the full confidence that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election.
“I think what happened was people like Clapper and the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency [John Brennan], all these guys thought they could get away with this because Hillary [Clinton] was gonna win and when Hillary won the fix would be in, everything will be covered up,” he said.
“And around 10 o’clock on election night, they all began to realize this could get really bad and they were shifting gears from protecting Hillary, which had been their job for two years, to trying to destroy Trump,” he continued.
“Now you are watching people who, I think, in every case are in danger of going to jail if the system works and people are actually tested on, ‘Did you tell the truth under oath?’ And then Clapper’s a perfect example,” Ginrich said.
After seeing another clip of James Clapper denying he lied claiming he was “thinking about something else,” Gingrich said he hoped President Trump’s former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to Mueller in December, was watching.
“I hope General Flynn is prepared to go back” and use the “Clapper defense,” Gingrich said.
“Whatever you thought I said, I didn’t mean to say and it wasn’t what I said. I don’t know why you thought I said it because I wouldn’t have said it if I had known you thought I said it, and therefore can’t really be a problem,” Gingrich mocked. “This tells you how pathetic this is going to be.”
