Whoopi Goldberg says media coverage of Trump was '98 percent' positive

Gingrich's comments immediately sparked brushback on social media, where politics observers were quick to note that the former Georgia congressman had voted to impeach Clinton on articles that included a charge of obstructing justice. When Mueller was first hired by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in mid-May, after the initial firestorm surrounding Trump's abrupt firing of Comey, Gingrich expressed support, tweeting that Mueller's "reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity".

GINGRICH: I think it's incredible, if you look at the - for example, CNN's 93% negative coverage according to Harvard, 93% negative, I think it's a miracle that Trump has any approval.

"One out of every three hands went up", Gingrich said.

Macron's Party Allied With MoDem Gains 350 Seats in National Assembly
French President Emmanuel Macron is poised to rearrange his Cabinet after his new centrist party swept parliamentary elections. Macron wants to use his mandate to strip away some labor protections to encourage hiring and to toughen security.

In recent weeks, the scandal has involved the recent firing of James Comey as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who headed up testifying in front of Congress last week. They have opened the investigation into Jared Kushner's business dealings and contacts with Russia (hard to see how going to a Russian bank has anything to do with diplomacy), and now Mike Pence is "lawyering up".

Trump's personal legal team, led by Marc Kasowitz has issued talking points and the president's sycophants are following them to the letter. You could have good personal relations, but that didn't mean when you got down to negotiate that they could betray their caucus or I could betray my conference.

Gingrich, speaking on Fox News' "Outnumbered", offered his prayers to those injured and promptly lumped the violent incident in with what he called a broader trend coming from those opposed to President Donald Trump.

President Trump says Scalise 'took a bullet for all of us'
Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". According to the doctors, the main concern for Scalise at this point is making sure he does not have an infection.

Gingrich reversed course from a month ago, when he tweeted praise of Mueller, calling him "a superb choice" to head the Russian Federation investigation. I think that it will be interesting to watch. You have this legalistic nightmare trying to block the Trump presidency on behalf of a department in which 97 percent of the money was given to [former Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary [Clinton], and you want me to believe this is all just random behavior? "I think on smaller things, you can be very bipartisan".

'Turns out, even Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the (Senate) intelligence committee, says there is zero evidence of collusion. "This is an Indian hunting party", Gingrich said.

But the former GOP House Speaker added, Trump "is infuriated - and legitimately, in my judgment - by this whole Russian baloney". But maybe, maybe there was obstruction.

Donald Trump not under investigation for obstruction, says lawyer
Other presidents have managed to compartmentalize investigations and go about the business of governing, but Trump seems consumed by the Mueller probe.
