Newt Gingrich sat down for an interview with FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures. He said that AG Merrick garland and other Biden officials face jail sentences for the abuses of the law they have committed. Many of those laws were broken in the name of investigations. The problem Democrats have is that the first of next year, Republicans will control the House of Representatives, and at that point, it could be time to pay the piper.
“Well, you have, both with Attorney General Garland and with this select committee on January 6, people who have run amok. They are breaking the rules. They are going after people in a way which is reminiscent of the British monarchy using closed-door systems that we outlawed deliberately because we’d seen it. We knew what it was like. And they’re running over people’s civil liberties. And what they need to understand is, on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House and a Republican majority in the Senate.”
“And all these people who’ve been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email, because I think it’s clear that this — these are people who are literally just running over the law, pursuing innocent people, causing them to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees, for no justification. And it’s basically a lynch mob.”
“Unfortunately, the attorney general of the United States has joined that lynch mob and is totally misusing the FBI. And I think, when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down, and the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep. And they’re the ones who are, in fact, going to, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kind of laws they are breaking.”
Gingrich is an expert on taking control of the House as he did it himself in 1994 when the Republicans picked up 54 House seats and another 9 seats in the Senate. It was a massacre. Nancy Pelosi tried to counter the Republican strategy by calling it the Contract on America, but even then she had no credibility and no one but the sheep followed her.
Let’s h0ope that Gingrich is right, but I have my doubts, although it would not surprise me if Garland and others, such as Christopher were impeached by the House, even then it is highly unlikely to result in anyone losing their job.
