Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on “Hannity” that with their new majority in the House, Democrats are composing myriad ways to “get” President Trump and sabotage his presidency.
Gingrich and host Sean Hannity said the Mueller probe — which Gingrich said should be called the Mueller Trump Destruction Project — is offering “Get Out of Jail Free Cards” to “hurt the president as badly as can.”
Gingrich said the left is “undermining America for partisan reasons.”
