What’s the bigger scandal — Russians colluding with the Trump campaign, or Democrats doing everything in their power to fool the public into thinking that’s what occurred?
That’s the question Republican former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has for Fox’s Sean Hannity in this clip about the bigger picture of what’s going on with the investigation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is currently conducting.
It now seems increasingly clear that instead of finding real evidence of wrongdoing, figures in the Obama administration such as former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and others — including the former President Obama himself — were abusing their powers to simply spy on the people who composed their political opposition. If this is the case, it’s a blatant abuse of power that needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Congress needs to realize that even if the Russians were playing some weak and ineffective political games in the background of the election, the use of a drastically wider net to surveil anyone and everyone in the Trump campaign regardless of their potential involvement in supposed collusion — and, in the case of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort — trying to intimidate these people into giving up “dirt” on the current president of the United States — could constitute a crime in itself.
The fact that Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper won’t say he wasn’t aware of a FISA warrant for the wiretapping of Manafort at Trump Tower just goes to show that the Obama administration was likely using the idea of “Russian collusion” as an excuse this whole time — to harass, obstruct and restrict Trump from enacting the nationalist economic agenda he promised to American voters. It’s high time that Mueller either pulls something out of his big black bag of tricks or is dismissed by the president for overseeing a witch hunt.
Watch as Gingrich has some choice words about the matter for Hannity.
