Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday night that calls for an investigation into claims that the Russian government hacked the U.S. election is “as stupid as anything I’ve seen the left try.”
“Think about it. Barack Obama’s now saying that his administration was so incompetent that they stood around sucking their thumb while the Russians snuck in and hacked into an American election because of the utter incompetence of the Obama defense system,” Gingrich said on Hannity’s show. “Now, I don’t know why one would want to go make that case.”
Gingrich added that he does not believe the claims of Russian hacking had any effect on the outcome of the election, but Trump’s victory was instead a choice of the American people.
“I don’t believe that the Russians carried Pennsylvania. I think Donald Trump did,” the former Speaker said. “I don’t think that the Russians carried Wisconsin… I don’t think the Russians carried Michigan. Donald Trump did. The problem the left has is they cannot come to grips with the reality that the American people are turning against them, that the American people defeated them, and frankly, if the election were held today, the margin would be even bigger.”
