Via Monday's edition of 'Hannity' on Fox News:
NEWT GINGRICH: I don't think I fully appreciated until this evening how really important it was for Donald Trump to win. If Hillary Clinton had won, none of this would have surfaced, they just would have kept covering up all the corruption, and they would have just kept taking care of themselves. So the very fact that you have this disruptive figure in the White House, all of us are learning some pretty horrifying things about how sick the system is, how sick the entire process is, in a way I would have thought were impossible.
I have the greatest respect for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and it is astonishing to me that you could have people at the top who are this corrupt, this profoundly dishonest.
The second thing that struck me is... If you take what Gen. Flynn is accused of, and then you take virtually anything that Hillary has done. 33,000 deletions of emails without any kind of approval, all of the having a totally inappropriate server that was totally outside the State Department rules, just go down the list. Any one of her things would certainly have at least matched what they are accusing Gen. Flynn of...
SEAN HANNITY: Our mutual friend Mark Levin calls this a 'Post-Constitutional Republic,' this is now becoming a Banana Republic if this stays. Where do we go from here with what we now know?
NEWT GINGRICH: I haven't given up on America. I don't think Donald Trump has given up on America... most of our viewers haven't.
What we now know is the swamp is sicker, more corrupt, more dishonest than we thought it was.
So, we just have to dig deeper, throw the rascals out. Realize the election of 2018 is going to be truly historic. Between a radical left that is stunningly corrupt, and the rest of us.
This is a real fight for whether or not America is going to remain a Republic that is ruled by law, or whether it is going to degenerate into being a purely corrupt system of power, where if you're on the right team you can rip everybody off and be protected, if you're on the wrong team you can go to jail if you're innocent.
I think that is how serious and how profound this is right now. It is one of the great historic moments in American history.
