WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on Fox News Sunday to question the credibility of the House Intelligence Committee and media’s narrative on so-called Russian interference with U.S. electoral systems.
On the broadcast, Gingrich questioned if the Obama Administration was deliberately “leaking” information which the former Speaker said, “would be a felony.”
“I think we should know what the Russians have been up to but frankly that involves the Podesta brothers, one of who is a registered agent for a Russian bank,” Gingrich said. “It’s ironic that all of the real evidence on real money and real influence buying by the Russians relates to Democrats. There is no evidence that anybody was particularly being purchased on the Republican side.”
Gingrich anticipates that “panic” surrounding the issue will intensify and said that the intelligence community needs to “take a deep breath” because “there is no crime here.”
