If you need further proof of what a slimy hack and hypocrite Newt Gingrich is, just look at what he said at the National Press Club on Friday. In defending Trump, he said that a president cannot obstruct justice. Bill Clinton to the white courtesy phone.

Fire up the Wayback Machine and set it for 1998:
After questioning Clinton’s use of executive privilege as well, Gingrich then delivered a similarly harsh address before his former political committee, GOPAC. “What you have lived through for 2 1/2 years is the most systematic, deliberate obstruction of justice, coverup and effort to avoid the truth we have ever seen in American history, and the time has come to say to the president, ‘Quit undermining the law in the United States. Turn over the evidence,’ “ he said.
What he meant to say, of course, is that the Republican president of the United States cannot obstruct justice.
