“It is ironic that all of the real evidence of real money and real influence-buying relates to Democrats,” Gingrich said.
“There is no evidence that anybody was being purchased on the Republican side.”
Gingrich went on to say the media was being in a “frenzy” and in a state of “hysteria.” He stated that there was no crime and they should not be covering it.
“There is no crime here, I don’t know what the crime would be, and a zero question of crime by the Trump people,” Gingrich said.
“… The committees, beyond my understanding, are narrowly defining what this investigation is about. It should be about the degree to which the U.S. was penetrated by efforts to corrupt our society and to purchase influence,” he said.
The House and Senate intelligence panels are investigating the Russian election meddling and any ties between members of Trump’s campaign and Moscow.
Michael Flynn also offered to testify in the ongoing probes in exchange for legal immunity. Trump encouraged Flynn to do so as well.
