Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) warned tonight that the indictments against President Trump is putting the nation on a path towards a constitutional crisis.
“We are drifting towards the greatest constitutional crisis since the 1850’s and the rise of secession and civil war,” he said on Fox News. “I don’t mean that as hyperbole.”
Gingrich’s remarks came as a Georgia grand jury handed down 10 indictments in the Trump Georgia case.
“What you are seeing across the country is a desperate, last ditch effort by a corrupt machine to destroy their most dangerous opponent in a way that not only breaks the constitution, destroys the rule of law and establishes a moment of bitterness which I think will last for a generation or more,” he said.
Gingrich said Americans should be incredibly alarmed and downright scared of how the Obama machine has weaponized the judicial system.
“This is going to be a horrendous period,” he predicted. “The people who want to control America and dictate to the rest of us will break any law, lie about any topic and manipulate the system any way they can and that includes a lot of the elite news media.”
