Newt Gingrich is one of the only people in the country who is truly an authority on impeachment.
When it comes to the show Democrats are putting on, he is not impressed.
He discussed his thoughts during a recent appearance on FOX and Friends.
FOX News reports:
Gingrich compares House Dems’ impeachment inquiry to Salem witch trials: ‘There is nothing here’
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Tuesday that the impeachment inquiry is “all garbage” and comparable to the “Salem witch trials,” arguing that President Trump did nothing wrong in his phone call with the leader of Ukraine.
“There is nothing here,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends,” referring to alleged evidence of wrongdoing by Trump in his phone call with the president of Ukraine.
“Presidents who want to find the truth have every right to say to a foreign government, ‘will you help me get to the truth,’ and that’s what Trump was doing,” Gingrich said, referencing Trump’s call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky for help investigating the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden worked for a Ukrainian gas company at the same time his father Joe Biden was serving as vice president and leading the Obama administration’s diplomatic dealings with Kiev…
Gingrich reacted to the media coverage saying, “What you have is a coup being orchestrated by left-wingers in the bureaucracy, left-wingers in the news media and left-wingers in the House Democrats, and, historically, it’ll be seen someday as being crazy, literally like the Salem witch trial.”

Gingrich has been making similar points on Twitter lately:
After the first day of impeachment hearings, it's no surprise that the Dems didn't want an open process. Running an impeachment on hearsay doesn't work. The Dems should stop wasting the American people's time and focus on actually legislating. pic.twitter.com/IzqHAuDVbI

The media's desperate attempts to smear President Trump are nothing new. Americans weren't fooled by these maneuvers in 2016, and they won't be fooled by them in 2020. My latest column ➡️ https://t.co/iiuq5V8Xc2 pic.twitter.com/LMrc70fPva

As usual, Gingrich is correct in his analysis here.
