Remember how Gingrich praised the selection of Special Counsel Robert Mueller back in May, saying “Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down”?
Fast forward less than a month later and suddenly he’s had a change of heart saying, “The brazen redefinition of Mueller’s task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything.”
What could cause such a quick turn around? Why did he go from President of Mueller’s fan club to accusing him of conspiracies?
According to one report, it may be because Gingrich has now been implicated in the investigation.
Political insider Puesto Loco said, “FBI has Sept, 2016 tapes of Newt Gingrich setting up multiple Team Trump/Russia meetings with Kislyak et al.”
This explains so much. Gingrich was a key adviser during Trump’s campaign, but never seemed to crack into Trump’s inner circle. He didn’t even get a cabinet nomination despite his political experience. Perhaps Trump knew Gingrich had something to hide, so it was too much of a risk.
Only time will tell if more details come to light as Mueller continues with his investigation.
