Robert Mueller cannot be trusted, according to former Speaker Newt Gingrich, who told Fox News Friday that the Special Counsel’s law firm made 99.81% of its presidential campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton.
Newt Gingrich: “The Mueller investigation has so many conflicts of interest, it’s almost an absurdity. The law firm he comes from gave 99.81 percent of its donations to Hillary Clinton last year. That’s right, .19 of 1 percent went to Donald Trump. The people he has been hiring are all anti-Trump lawyers, several of them have very bad records of hiding information from the defense and one case was rebuked by the Supreme Court in a 9-0 vote. It’s hard to understand why he would assemble such a team unless it was a deliberate effort to go after the President and the President’s team.”
This isn’t the first time Newt Gingrich came out against Mueller. Gingrich called his investigation into ‘Trump-Russia’ ties “very dangerous” in June.
Business Insider reports:
Gingrich posted his tweets after The Washington Post reported Wednesday night that Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials now expanded to include a probe into whether Trump committed obstruction of justice with his firing of former FBI Director James Comey last month.
Mueller is also seeking proof of whether Trump associates committed financial crimes.
“Should now be clear Mueller is the ‘anti-Trump special counsel,'” Gingrich tweeted.
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.”
“Very dangerous,” he wrote, saying it’s clear following the Post’s story that Mueller is “the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency.”
“The brazen redefinition of Mueller’s task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything,” he added.
