Newt Gingrich: Dems ‘Face Real Risk of Jail’ for Laws They Are Breaking When GOP Takes Over


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich is predicting that some Democrats could “face a real risk of jail” for laws that he says they are breaking.

During an interview on Sunday Morning Futures, Gingrich told host Maria Bartiromo that he believes a massive Red Wave is coming in November’s midterm elections.

He also predicted that some Democrats may face jail time for punishing their political opponents with investigations since they took over in 2020.

“All of these people who’ve been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email because I think it’s clear these are people who just literally running over the law, pursuing innocent people, causing them to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees for no justification,” Gingrich said.


“And it’s basically a lynch mob and unfortunately, the Attorney General of the United States has joined that lynch mob and is totally misusing the FBI. And I think when we have a Republican Congress this is all going to come crashing down. And the wolves are going to find out that they are now sheep. And they are the ones who in fact I think are going to face a real risk of jail,” he added.

Bartiromo: Welcome back. President Biden was in Atlanta this month attacking Republicans in a last-ditch effort to keep Democrats in power and federalize all elections. According to my next guest, Newt Gingrich’s race-baiting is not only ironic but hypocritical and is destroying America. He’s a former speaker of the house and Fox News contributor and he joins me now. Right to see you. Thanks for wary much. We see the polls and America rejecting the Biden agenda and yet when we hear from the president, voting bills that must happen or that elections won’t be legitimate. Your thoughts?

Gingrich: Look, I think they talked themselves into a dead end. The Biden-Harris, Schumer-Pelosi teams for reasons I don’t understand went out of their way to take things they can get done. They knew that they did not have Senator Manchin or senator cinema. They knew they were going to lose the vote in the Senate. They just kept pounding on and by the way, these are not very popular bills. I mean, if you ask people if they want to see more spending and have more inflation, the answer is overwhelmingly now. If you asked people if they want a bill that would block identifying voters by identity, the fact is photo ids are acceptable to about 87% of all Americans. They want an honest election, not a rigged election, so this goes on and on. Biden wants us to worry about the border in Ukraine the American people are worried about the border with Mexico and you have a gasoline problem, which is going to get worse and so Biden is calling on Russia at the same time he’s trying to pressure Putin— Putin, he’s hoping the Russians will pump more oil to give them more money to build their military even stronger, I mean, this stuff makes no sense if you are a normal person, but on the American left it apparently substitutes for any kind of critical thought. Maria: that’s what strikes me. We see the poll numbers plummeting we see Americans rejecting their agenda and yet he’s not responding to it at all. He— in terms of what’s important to the American people.


Look, the government socialism doesn’t work, but the people who believe in it believing it almost as a secular religion appeared they can’t get off of it. So, you really end up with people who are asked fanatic as the revolutionaries in the French revolution or the revolutionaries in 1917 in Moscow and they believe and when you show them the facts, they reject the fax because it threatens their belief system. A poll this week showed the Republicans may be ahead by 57-42 in terms of who you will vote for Congress, that would be a landslide that would take it back probably to 1920 with the Republican Congress that was that strong and would mean probably picking up six or seven seats in the Senate and between 40 and 70 seats in the house. You would think at that point that the democratic leadership would get together and say this ain’t working. Instead, they get together and they start chanting, we got to get this done even though no one outside their group once it.
