Gingrich mocks critics of Trump's claim that Obama 'must've known' about 'Spygat

• By Jon Dougherty

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich viciously mocked critics of President Donald Trump after he claimed in an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos over the weekend that former President Obama "must have known" about the 'Spygate' operation to frame him for "colluding with Russia" and drive him from office.

Asked to comment about the president's statements, Gingrich was relentless in his criticism of Leftists and Democrats who are blasting the president for stating what the former Speaker says is pretty obviously factual.

"I think this whole episode…if you come up to the big picture is close to insane," the former Georgia Republican began. "You want to suggest to me that the attorney general has a private meeting with former President Clinton on an airplane in Phoenix for I think 45 minutes and the current sitting president, Barack Obama, doesn't know about it?"
