Gingrich says the Democratic Party has ‘lost its mind’


SHOW. I DIDN’T KNOW IT WOULD BE THAT EARLY. THAT WOULD BE GREAT.>>WE WILL SEE. STEVE: LAST TIME THERE WAS IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING IN THE HOUSE. NEWT GINGRICH WAS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. IS HE A FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR AND WRITES A NEWSLETTER AVAILABLE AT 360.COM. HE JOINING US NOW. NEWT, GOOD MORNING TO YOU. AINSLEY: GOOD MORNING.>>CLEARLY THE PRESIDENT THINKS THAT BY RELEASING THIS TRANSCRIPT IT’S GOING TO EXONERATE HIM. FOX NEWS HAS LEARNED THERE ARE A FEW WORDS IN IT ACCORDING TO A SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL THAT WILL RAISE EYEBROWS BUT IT’S NOT AS BIG AS THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SUGGESTED. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF ALL OF THIS?>>WELL, LOOK, I THINK IN THE LONG RUN HISTORIANS WILL THINK THAT THIS IS THE THEATER OF THE ABSURD THE PRESIDENT GAVE EXTRAORDINARY HISTORIC SPEECH ON RELIGION AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM YESTERDAY. PEOPLE I KNOW WHO CARE DEEPLY ABOUT THAT TOPIC THINK IT’S ONE OF THE MOST HISTORIC SPEECHES GIVEN BY ANY MODERN PRESIDENT ON THE ISSUE OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND GOD. AND, YET, HE IS SURROUNDED, BASICALLY, BY A DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHICH HAS LOST ITS MIND. NANCY PELOSI — THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING, THIS IS THE INFANTILE STAGE OF LIBERALISM, WHICH WAS ALSO MATCHED YESTERDAY BY A 16-YEAR-OLD ADDRESSING THE UNITED NATIONS AS THOUGH SHE KNEW SOMETHING. NANCY PELOSI HASN’T SEEN THE TRANSCRIPT, HASN’T INTERVIEWED THE WHISTLEBLOWER. HAS NO NEW INFORMATION AND FURTHERMORE WHEN SHE STARTS THE INVESTIGATION OF THE UKRAINE, THE PERSON WHO IS GOING TO GET CLOBBERSIDE JOE BIDEN. IF YOU LOOK AT HUNTER BIDEN HIS SON BOTH IN CHINA AND IN UKRAINE. WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT IS A CASE STUDY IN CORRUPTION. NANCY PELOSI SHOULD HAVE ANNOUNCED AN INVESTIGATION. SHE SAID NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW. WELL, DOES THAT INCLUDE THE FRONTRUNNER IN HER OWN PARTY BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENED, NOTICE WHAT THE ARGUMENT IS. THE PRESIDENT SAYS, GOSH, TO A BRAND NEW ANTICORRUPTION REFORMER, WHICH IS WHAT THEY HAVE NOW IN THE UKRAINE. A COMEDIAN WHO WANTED TO — THESE PEOPLE SO SICK OF THE CORRUPTION. AND THE PRESIDENT SAYS NO THIS WAS ALL BEING HANDLED BY THE CORRUPT SYSTEM. WHY DON’T YOU CHECK WHAT HAPPENED. HE DIDN’T SAY GO MAKE SOMETHING UP. IS IT TRUE THAT HUNTER BIDEN’S COMPANY WAS ENGAGED IN CORRUPT BEHAVIOR? IS IT TRUE, FOR EXAMPLE, IN CHINA THAT THERE IS A WHOLE WEIRD PATTERN OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAPPENS TO GO TO THE VICE PRESIDENT’S SON WHO HAS ZERO SKILL AT WHAT IS HE GETTING. IF HIS NAME HAD BEEN HUNTER SMITH HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN NO MONEY AT ALL. SO I THINK WHAT PELOSI IS DOING IS OPENING UP A CAN OF WORMS AND THE LARGEST WORMS ARE GOING TO BE HUNTER AND JOE BIDEN, NOT DONALD TRUMP. BRIAN: WHAT DO YOU I DON’T UNDERSTAND, MR. SPEAKER YOU KNOW POLITICS BETTER THAN ANYBODY I KNOW. SHE HAD HER WIN. SHE GOT THE PRESIDENT TO RELEASE THE TRANSCRIPT. GOVERNMENT THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT FORWARD. SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THE 5:00 PRESS CONFERENCE WHICH WAS NOTHING BUT SYMBOLISM BECAUSE THERE IS NO VOTE. WHAT IS SHE THINKING?>>I THINK WHAT HAPPENS AND I HAVE BEEN IN A SITUATION SO ONE LEVEL I’M SYMPATHETIC TO THE PSYCHOLOGICAL DYNAMIC. ALL OF HER HARD LEFT GETS IN THE ROOM AND STARTS CHANTING. AND ALL CHANTING IMPEACH NOW, IMPEACH NOW, IMPEACH NOW. SHE WALKS IN THE SAME ROOM AND THEY GO LOOK, NOW YOU FINALLY HAVE PROOF. THEY ACTUALLY DON’T HAVE ANYTHING. THEY HAVEN’T SEEN THE TRANSCRIPT. THE WHIB FRANKLY IS A PRETTY WEIRD IDEA. HOW CAN YOU HAVE A WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMING SOMETHING SO SECRET THAT THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE IT TO THE “NEW YORK TIMES” AND “THE WASHINGTON POST” AND TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY AND THE PRESIDENT THEN I THINK PULLS THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER AND SAYS FINE, YOU WANT TO SEAT TRANSCRIPT? HE DID THE RIGHT THING BY THE WAY. WHICH IS THEY CHECKED WITH THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE TO MAKE SURE THEY HAD HIS APPROVAL BECAUSE, OTHERWISE, IF YOU ARE A LEADER AROUND THE WORLD AND YOU THINK THE “NEW YORK TIMES” AND “THE WASHINGTON POST” IS GOING TO BE PRINTING ANYTHING YOU SAY YOU ARE NOT GOING TO AN HUN NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CONVERSATION. I THINK TRUMP ACTUALLY HANDLED THIS IN A VERY SOPHISTICATED WAY IF, IN FACT, YOU KNOW, YOU ARE A NORMAL AMERICAN YOU ARE LOOKING AT $2 BILLION MINIMUM IN CHINA. YOU ARE LOOKING AT A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THE UKRAINE ALL GOING TO HUNTER BIDEN WHILE HIS FATHER IS VICE PRESIDENT. THEN YOU LOOK AT DONALD TRUMP AS YOU SAY A MINUTE AGO. THERE MIGHT BE THREE OR FOUR WORDS IN THE TRANSCRIPT AND YOU ARE GOING TO SUDDENLY UPSET THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OVER 3 OR 4 WORDS? I THINK IT BECOMES AN ABSURDITY. AINSLEY: CONGRESSMAN SAYS THEY WILL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH AND, OR, BUT. THOSE ARE THE THREE WORDS THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOU MENTIONED MARC THIESSEN WROTE AN OP-ED IN THE “THE WASHINGTON POST” ABOUT THE DOUBLE STANDARD. YOU MENTIONED WHAT JOE BIDEN HAD DONE ALSO SENATORS WROTE A LETTER SAYING THEY WERE PUSHING THE TOP PROSECUTOR TO NOT CLOSE THESE FOUR INVESTIGATIONS ABOUT MUELLER. NANCY PELOSI STOOD UP THERE YESTERDAY AT 5:00 AND SHE SAID HE MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE HE BETRAYED THE OATH OF OFFICE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY BACK MACHINE, THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID BACK IN 1998 WHEN REPUBLICANS WERE TRYING TO IMPEACH BILL CLINTON. LISTEN TO THIS. THIS WAS POSTED ON RYAN SEVADO’S TWITTER PAGE A REPORTER FOR THE DAILY WIRE. WATCH.>>TODAY THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IS NOT JUDGING THE PRESIDENT WITH FAIRNESS BUT IMPEACHING HIM WITH A VENGEANCE. IN THE INVESTIGATION OF THE PRESIDENT’S FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES WHICH AMERICANS HOLD DEAR, PRIVACY, FAIRNESS, CHECKS AND BALANCES, HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY VIOLATED. AND WHY? BECAUSE WE ARE HERE — WE ARE HERE TODAY BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE ARE PARALYZED WITH HATRED. UNTIL THE REPUBLICANS FREE THEMSELVES OF THIS HATRED, OUR COUNTRY WILL SUFFER. AINSLEY: NEWT, WHAT’S YOUR RESPONSE?>>WELL, MY RESPONSE IS THAT THIS IS ALL PART OF THE LEFT’S EFFORT TO REWRITE HISTORY. THE FACT IS PRESIDENT CLINTON COMMITTED FELONIES. HE PERJURED HIMSELF IN A TRIAL THAT INVOLVED SEXUAL HARASSMENT BY CLINTON AS THE EMPLOYER. HARASSING A SUBORDINATE. THINK ABOUT THE CURRENT PSYCHOLOGY IF HE HAD DONE IT NOW. HE ENDED UP ULTIMATELY LOSING HIS LICENSE TO PRACTICE LAW HE ENDED UP HAVING TO PAY A PENALTY ENDED UP HAVING TO PAY OFF THE WOMAN BECAUSE IS HE SO VIOLATED HER CIVIL RIGHTS. SO WE WERE GIVEN A DIFFICULT CHALLENGE BECAUSE KEN STARR’S REPORT CAME BACK AND SAID GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY. GUILTY. IT DIDN’T COME BACK AND SAY ANY OF THE THINGS THAT NANCY PELOSI JUST SAID. OPPOSITE BY THE WAY OF MUELLER. STEVE: SURE. BUT, NEWT, THE POLITICAL REALITY IS IF NANCY PELOSI WERE TO GET THE WHATEVER SHE NEEDS, 218 VOTES TO GO AHEAD FOR IMPEACHMENT, THE U.S. SENATE IS NEVER GOING TO IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT. IT’S A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY AND IT SIMPLY WOULD NOT DO IT BASED ON WHAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW. GIVEN THE POLITICAL REALITIES YOU FACE YOU END UP SENDING THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TO THE SENATE WHERE THE SENATE SAID NO, WE ARE NOT GOING TO CONVICT HIM.>>RIGHT. AND I THINK THAT WAS IN THE CONTEXT OF THAT PERIOD AND PEOPLE LOOKED AT THE TOTALITY AND THEY SAID IT WAS RIGHT FOR HIM TO BE IMPEACHED. IT WAS NOT RIGHT TO TAKE HIM OUT OF OFFICE. BUT THE TRUTH WAS AS I SAID A MINUTE AGO, HE SUFFERED — BILL CLINTON SUFFERED A NUMBER OF CONSEQUENCES. HERE’S THE OTHER BIG DIFFERENCE. IN THE CASE OF CLINTON HE HAD ACTUALLY BROKEN THE LAW AND COMMITTED A FELONY IN A CASE INVOLVING SEXUAL PERDATION AGAINST AN EMPLOYEE. IF THAT HAPPENED TODAY. WOULD PEOPLE BE GOING CRAZY? THAT’S NOT THE CASE HERE. THE MOST THEY CAN COME UP WITH IS IN A CASE INVOLVING HUNTER BIDEN DOING A BUNCH OF WEIRD THINGS WHICH MADE HIM A TON OF MONEY, BOTH IN CHINA AND IN UKRAINE, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHEN THEY RELEASE IT MAY HAVE SAID, YOU KNOW, IT WOULDN’T BE A BAD DEAL TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT THAT NOW THAT YOU DON’T HAVE CORRUPT PROSECUTORS. REMEMBER, THE ELECTION IN UKRAINE WAS A COMEDIAN TURNED POLITICIAN TO CLEAN UP THE CORRUPTION AND SO THIS GUY ACTUALLY IS PROBABLY VERY SYMPATHETIC TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S POSITION. BRIAN: WHAT BOTHERS ME MOST BY THE WAY HAPPENS TO BE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE WE ARE GOING TO GET ANYTHING DONE FOR THE REST OF THE SESSION. WHAT ALSO BOTHERS ME THAT THE USMCA ANY TYPE OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, ANYTHING ON GUNS OR ANYTHING AT ALL. AND NUMBER TWO IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HAD A VERY COMPREHENSIVE FORWARD-LOOKING WHILE IT’S POINTING OUT HIS ACHIEVEMENTS AT THE U.N. YESTERDAY AND NOW THE YOU WERE MEAN UNION IS GETTING BEHIND THE PRESIDENT TO RENEGOTIATE THE IRANIAN DEAL. HE SEEMS TO HAVE INTERNATIONAL MOMENTUM AND IT’S BEING STEAM ROLLED BY SOMETHING THAT COULD ADD UP TO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT PROBABLY IS THE MOST FRUSTRATING THING.>>LOOK, THE REALITY IS THE ELITE MEDIA HATES TRUMP AS MUCH AS NANCY PELOSI HATES TRUMP. AND THE ELITE MEDIA DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE HIM A BREAK AND WON’T. THAT’S REALITY. I MEAN, THIS IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE. AS LONG AS TRUMP IS DETERMINED TO STAND UP FOR AMERICA AND TRUMP IS DETERMINED TO CHANGE THE SWAMP AND TO CHANGE THE DEEP STATE, THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HATE HIM. THEY ARE NOT CONFUSED. THEIR VERY WAY OF LIFE IS BEING THREATENED. THE “NEW YORK TIMES” GETS UP EVERY MORNING AND SAYS I KNOW TRUMP DID SOMETHING TERRIBLE. I WONDER WHAT IT IS. BRIAN: THEY DEFINE IT. SOMETHING IS GREAT. INSIDE THE CONTRACT WITH AMERICA THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY DEBUTS TOMORROW ON FOX NATION. REAL QUICK, MR. SPEAKER. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?>>VERY EXCITED GOING TO SHOW ON FOX REGULAR CHANNEL ON SUNDAY NIGHT A SPECIAL THAT REALLY CARRIES YOU THROUGH WHAT WE DID AND HOW WE DID IT TO GAIN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS. HOW WE RALLIED THE PEOPLE AND REPRESENTED THEIR VALUES IN A VERY POSITIVE CAMPAIGN INVOLVING BIG IDEAS. I’M VERY EXCITED BY THE SPECIAL THAT WILL BE ON SUNDAY NIGHT. BRIAN: NEVER FORGET HOW CHRIS FARLEY PORTRAYED YOU IN SNL. THAT WAS ALSO FANTASTIC.
