Newt Gingrich Calls Mueller ‘The Tip Of Deep State Spear’ A Month After Praising His ‘Honesty And Integrity’

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Thursday went after special counsel Robert Mueller, accusing him of trying to undermine the Trump presidency.

“Mueller is now clearly the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency,” Gingrich tweeted Thursday.

The Hill added:

“Gingrich’s comments come after a report in The Washington Post late Wednesday that Mueller, the special counsel named to investigate the Russian election meddling, is now looking into whether President Trump sought to obstruct justice.

Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony last week sparked questions about whether Trump tried to obstruct justice. Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he believed he was directed by Trump to end the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.”

Gingrich had previously offered praise for Mueller as special counsel. After his appointment, Gingrich called Mueller a “superb choice,” adding that his reputation was “impeccable.”

But earlier this week, Gingrich reversed course.

In an interview, he said he is wary of Mueller’s team because he can’t trust “somebody who can only hire Democrats,” adding that they are “bad people.”

“In this kind of environment, I don’t give the benefit of the doubt to somebody who can only hire Democrats, but claims that we ought to trust him,” Gingrich said during a previous interview on “CBS This Morning.”

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tore into former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Thursday after he attacked special counsel Robert Mueller as a dubious investigator bent on attacking President Trump.

In a stream of tweets, Scarborough accused Gingrich of “sliming an American hero” and fanning anti-government conspiracy theories by floating the notion that Mueller is a part of the so-called deep state.
