Gingrich: 'Comey may be under investigation'

MSNBC's Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough took issue with Newt Gingrich early Thursday when the former Speaker of the House posted to Twitter that Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller was the "tip of the deep state spear" whose aim was to destroy or damage the presidency of Donald Trump.

'These people are coming after you to put you in prison, and you need to be very careful and you need to listen to your lawyers, and I say this as much to the president as anybody; this is not a game'.

"I don't think that tweet helped him", Gingrich said.

Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, vice-chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, said Friday that President Donald Trump should to stop discussing investigations into Russian Federation interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign.

WWE Money In The Bank 2017 PPV Kickoff Show Announced
The WWE Money-in-the-Bank Kickoff will air exclusively on the WWE Network starting an hour before the pay-per-view at 7/6c. WWE Money in the Bank takes places this Sunday, and once again the much-vaunted eponymous briefcase will be up for grabs.

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. "If he wants to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director all he has to do is fire him", he added. Reports have indicated Mueller is looking into whether Trump tried to obstruct justice.

After stating his shock that the president has anyone at all supporting him given the "endless barrage" of negative, hostile press surrounding him from the day he first announced he was running for office, Gingrich quoted a Harvard study that found a shocking but not surprising 93 percent of media coverage of President Trump was negative.

Trump added that the investigation was "the single greatest WITCH HUNT" in United States political history and is being led "by some very bad and conflicted people!"

Gingrich's comments are ironic given that he supported the Republican-led effort to impeach Clinton for obstruction of justice and perjury.

Carter gives Gadot her blessing for her portrayal of Wonder Woman
Not everyone agrees with the ban, a petition titled "Release Wonder Woman in Lebanon" was also circulating on Thursday. Director Patty Jenkins talks about Gal Gadot's casting as Wonder Woman .

In the letter to Comey informing him of his dismissal, the president said he was acting on a recommendation from Rosenstein.

Newt Gingrich said the shooting at congressional Republicans' baseball practice is part of a pattern of "an increasing intensity of hostility on the left". I've had college students say they've been threatened with getting beaten up, some of them get death threats. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof I did anything with the Russians. "And now I get an independent counsel who is going to mess up at least the next year'".

The deep state Gingrich references, by the way, is the idea recently espoused by the White House and Trump supporters, that an entrenched and usually anonymous class of bureaucrats has made it their new life's work to undermine Trump.
