Gingrich On Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page Involvement: People Will End Up Going To Jail


Newt Gingrich discussed James Comey's handling of the Clinton probe and FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page on Thursday night's Hannity and spoke of people going to jail.

Gingrich called it "very scary" that these people thought they could impose their version of the law to "save America."

HANNITY: I want to get into the specifics of this. This is very profound because on a level far deeper than Watergate ever was here, there is corruption at the highest levels. This is no longer paranoia, it's provable fact that the fix was in here. You have James Comey. Then you have the pro-Hillary, anti-Trump Peter Strzok and then his girlfriend Lisa Page, yeah, they are the ones going to save America with what they are doing.

But this exoneration of Hillary Clinton, when you take out the word likely foreign actors were able to access her email account, to cover up a foreign a national security breach in this country, then when you take the actual legal language 'gross negligence' and you remove that and put in and try to be cute and put in 'extreme carelessness.' I don't even know what to say. I mean I don't even know what to say. Wouldn't you define this as obstruction?

GINGRICH: At every level, this is undermining our system of justice. It is violating the law. It's very likely all of these people will end up going to jail. But, imagine that the reverse had happened. Imagine that they had allowed the law to follow its natural course. Imagine that you had gotten a report last summer, the summer of 2016 by Director Comey saying, well, you know, it's likely that foreign agents did get to her accounts because of the way she had handled them and the way she had broken the rules. It is clear that she was guilty of gross negligence, which, in fact, is as a technical term meaning that she had broken the law. And if he had said, therefore, I am recommending that she be prosecuted, I mean you would have blown the whole campaign wide open at that point.
