Despite Clinton impeachment vote, Gingrich says President 'cannot obstruct justice'

The Washington Post report Wednesday that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III had widened his investigation into President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice has renewed buzz around the capital about the possibility of impeachment.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) compared the Russian Federation investigation to the Salem witch trials on Friday and suggested that special counsel Robert Mueller expand his probe to cover Bill and Hillary Clinton. The liberal hosts constantly tried to pin him in a corner but Gingrich kept his cool, even after the hosts denied basic facts regarding Clinton's email investigation.

"The president can not obstruct justice", he said last week.

Newt Gingrich defended President Trump against allegations that Trump's firing of James Comey was a crime. And Trump defense flack Mark Corallo, a former Justice Department official, told Politico, "You'll never hear me say a bad thing about Bob Mueller".

"I think this whole game of recusal now, this is a nightmare", Gingrich said.

He said that a series of events have taught people that thinking of President Trump, and by extension the Republican Party, in violent terms is okay.

Whether Trump committed a similar act when he told Comey that he hoped he could "let go" of the investigation of Michael Flynn will likely be decided by lawyers working for Robert Mueller.

"He couldn't find a single pro-Trump attorney to hire, I think that's a mistake to pretend that this is some neutral investigation". "I don't think it serves him well". Moreover, Gingrich puts Mueller at the forefront of it. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof I did anything with the Russians. "And now I get an independent counsel who is going to mess up at least the next year, at a minimum, and who, by the way, you'll notice is expanding his charge". Instead, he doubled down, stating that people on the left using aggressive terms to describe the president have been somehow to blame for provoking this type of behavior.

The former House speaker wrote that Mueller "is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump's life and his associates lives".
