Newt Gingrich appeared on the FOX Business Network on Sunday and turned the media’s Russia narrative on its head. Newt suggested that it is Democrats, not Republicans who appear to have colluded with Russia.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Gingrich: Evidence points to Democratic collusion with Russia
Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker and presidential candidate, said Sunday that the evidence of collusion with Russia points to Democrats, not Republicans.
“It is ironic that all of the real evidence of real money and real influence-buying relates to Democrats,” Gingrich told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”
Gingrich, who has been a trusted Trump adviser, said Russia’s involvement in the 2016 elections “may have helped Democrats far more than Republicans.”
Gingrich pointed to benefactors of such collusion being associated with Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman, John Podesta — specifically his brother, Tony Podesta.
“There is no evidence that anybody was being purchased on the Republican side,” he said.

This is the Trump tweet referenced in the report:
It is the same Fake News Media that said there is "no path to victory for Trump" that is now pushing the phony Russia story. A total scam!

Can you imagine the media implosion that will take place if Gingrich is correct?
The media might actually stop talking about Russia!
