Newt Gingrich: Trump has a 'compulsion to counterattack'

Newt Gingrich: Trump has a 'compulsion to counterattack'

Trump "is infuriated, and legitimately, in my judgment, by this whole Russian baloney", Gingrich told ABC's Martha Raddatz. And now I get an independent counsel.

On May 19, Trump nominated Gingrich's wife, Callista, to be part of his administration as ambassador to the Vatican.

Recently, with reports that Mueller is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, Gingrich came out and said the president can not obstruct justice, despite voting to impeach Bill Clinton over obstruction of justice while in Congress.

"No", Gingrich said. "I think this whole game of recusal now is - this is a nightmare".

Comey whom Gingrich criticized for tainting the particular process by leaking his notes to a friend to create the position of the special counsel, was supposed to be neutral.




But Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) blamed Gingrich's about-face on opportunistic politics.

It's clear that Gingrich, along with many other Republican allies of the president, is becoming unhinged as this investigation worsens for Trump.

"What's happening here is the president wants to take down Bob Mueller", Schiff added on ABC's "This Week". And the question is why? "One of them is a person who defended the Clinton Foundation".

Gingrich has been on the front lines the past week defending the president in the wake of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling. Gingrich was referring to a tweet by Trump on Friday that appeared to confirm that the president is under investigation in the Russian Federation probe. "And is very pugnacious".

Gingrich continued: "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 don't think that tweet helped him".
