Avid Trump supporter, former presidential candidate and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich ripped into former FBI Director James Comey on Sunday morning during a radio interview.
“It’s very clear that Comey hates Trump,” Gingrich explained to radio host John Catsimatidis. He continued by stating he feels Comey manipulated the Russian probe and suggested Congress put an end to the special counsel entirely.
Gingrich said, “I think Congress should now intervene and they should abolish the independent counsel, because Comey makes so clear that it’s the poison fruit of a deliberate manipulation by the FBI director leaking to the New York Times, deliberately set up this particular situation. It’s very sick.”
