Gingrich: Somebody probably going to jail over Russian Federation investigation

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, one of President Donald Trump's top allies, went after special counsel Robert Mueller in a Thursday morning tweetstorm, calling the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director "the tip of the deep state spear aimed at" Trump.

Raddatz changed the subject again: "Let's talk about Rosenstein", she said, asking Gingrich if Trump has "lost confidence" in the deputy attorney general who wrote a memo listing the reasons why Trump should fire Comey; and later appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel.

"This is an Indian hunting party", the former Speaker of House and failed presidential candidate said.

"'By the way, I know you said I needed to spend eighty million but I've only spent thirty million. This intensity has been building, I think, since election night".

Scarborough then doubled down on his dig at unconfirmed ambassadorship and in shaming Gingrich for attacking Mueller, writing, "Newt, whatever you think you're getting in return for obsequiously sliming an American hero, I guarantee it's not worth it. Stop". Gingrich added that no one on Capitol Hill has proof he (Trump) colluded with the Russians.

During his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey said Sessions may have met for a third, undisclosed time, with Amb. "I don't think that tweet helped him", Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week".

Global overcapacity drags oil prices down to six-month lows
Total non-Opec production in 2018, led by the USA , is set to rise by 1.5m b/d - or more than double the rate of growth this year. Crude oil prices fell almost 4 percent Wednesday after government data showed gasoline inventories and oil production increased.

Gingrich prefaced the Mueller accusation with a post that labeled Mueller as "the anti-Trump special counsel".

So, the fantasy that didn't occur is now being replaced by - by the way, technically, the president of the United States can not obstruct justice. "I just thought, 'He's gonna go'".

"Trump has a compulsion to counterattack", Gingrich said.

Trump seemingly admitted he was under investigation for obstruction of justice - though his attorneys deny this - when he tweeted Friday: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director..."

Gingrich claimed that he was surprised Trump had any support with the public after the "endless barrage" of negative media attention that Trump has faced since he announced he was running for president.

Such tweets aren't helping, Gingrich said. "But it's nearly like it's who he has been his whole life".
