Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Roasts Pelosi’s J6 Committee


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

Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich shredded the January 6 committee as “fraudulent” and recommended that the GOP majority move to disavow it.

“This committee, the J6 committee, was so fraudulent, that the current House should repudiate it, define it as an illegal or unethical, runaway investigation of no standing,” he said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “[A]nd [it] should send a letter to both the Department of Justice and to the appropriate judges, saying that any action based on the J6 committee should be considered null and void and that people like Steve Bannon should not be going to jail because they want to fight with a committee which was literally operating outside the law.

“I think this is such a tainted and corrupted process,” the former Speaker continued. “And I think it has to be repealed by the House and repudiated by the House. And I think that the court and the Justice Department have to take into account that anybody who had a conflict with this committee was dealing with an out of control, illegal operation.”

“Their findings are based on a totally false product,” he said. “And the people who were subpoenaed by them who refused to agree, we now know, we’re on the right, that in fact, what you have here is a runaway select committee. That was totally dishonest.”

The former Speaker then turned to former Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, who is not a fan of former President Donald Trump.


“I mean, we’ve we’re in a period here where the establishment is just sick. And we have a chance to correct the record historically,” the former Speaker said. “And I think people will be astonished at how bad was Cheney was, how much she broke the rules, and how basically, she wanted to destroy Trump so badly, that she didn’t care that in the process, she was breaking the laws.”

“This committee destroyed all of its records. Now. That is, that is totally illegal, because we have others talk about Trump and Biden and their records. While I tell you what the J6 committee did, deliberately and methodically, was 1000 times worse than anything either Trump or Biden had done in terms of records,” he contended.

“They did it deliberately. And they did it because they didn’t want other people to figure out what they’ve been doing,” he concluded.

The former Speaker had a busy week with interviews as he appeared on the Fox News show “Hannity” where he shredded Vice President Kamala Harris.


“Kamala’s hopeless because she’s Kamala. Anybody who watches her knows the idea of her being President makes Biden look good, which is really hard nowadays,” he said when he appeared on the Fox News show “Hannity” this week.

“You have to start with the idea that she has imprinted on the country, permanently, that she’s a very shallow, uneducated, and uneducable person other than her weird laugh. There’s no significant part of her,” he said.

In March, during another appearance on “Hannity,” the former Speaker made similar comments about the vice president.


“You know, he [Biden] may or may not have cognitive decline problems at his age, but at her age, she’s just dumb,” he said. “Let’s be clear: Kamala Harris may be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history, and that’s why people keep resigning.”

“If you were her national security adviser, and you were competent, and you’d worked hard, and you knew what you were doing, and you watched her in Poland break up laughing when she’s asked about Ukrainian refugees, you had to feel a sense of total humiliation,” the former Speaker said.

“So I’m not surprised that that particular adviser resigned because it’s very clear that Kamala Harris should never, ever be allowed to leave the country,” he said.
