Gingrich: Mueller 'Should Recuse Himself' - We're Right Back Where Comey Was

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.

"You've had a series of things which send signals that tell people that it's OK to hate Trump, it's OK to think of Trump in violent terms, it's OK to consider assassinating Trump", Gingrich said.

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

Comey testified that initial explanations that he was sacked because of poor leadership were "lies, plain and simple". Feinstein says committee Democrats "are supportive of issuing a subpoena should it become necessary".

Conspiracy theorist and loyal Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich is now admitting that the Russian Federation scandal will likely result in people in Trump's circle - maybe even Trump himself - going to jail.

Gingrich added he did not truly see "Trump breaking loose until the Fox debate in August". "I don't think it serves him well".

He also seemed to accuse the United States deputy attorney general of pursuing a "witch hunt". "I know I didn't do anything with the Russians, '" he said.

India eventually collapsed to 158 all out as they suffered their heaviest defeat in terms of runs in 129 ODIs against Pakistan . Hardik Pandya cheered India fans in a capacity crowd as he hit three sixes off successive balls to bring up a dashing fifty.

It's clear that Gingrich, along with many other Republican allies of the president, is becoming unhinged as this investigation worsens for Trump. But if you apply his words to the current situation, Gingrich is the person now going on television both to sell his book and defend his wife's boss.

"He is infuriated, and legitimately, in my judgment, by this whole Russian bologna", Gingrich said.

Gingrich once praised Special Counsel Robert Mueller on May 17 as a "superb choice" and praised his reputation as "impeccable for honesty and integrity". But if you start dealing with people where they're over here and you're over here, you can be friendly, but that doesn't mean you're going to be very productive.

Kovind is from RSS ranks, oppn must put up candidate, says CPI
Earlier in the day, the BJP had held a Parliamentary Board meeting to decide its candidate for the 2017 Presidential elections . In fact, Kumar was the first non-BJP leader to call on Kovind in Raj Bhavan on Monday soon after Shah announced his candidature.

Raddatz asked Gingrich on Sunday if the president has lost confidence in Rosenstein who, after Comey's dismissal, appointed Bob Mueller as special counsel in charge of the FBI's investigation of Russian interference in the USA election and possible ties to Trump associates. He was reportedly a volunteer on the Bernie Sanders campaign and harbored a hatred for Trump and Republicans, according to his social media accounts.
