During a recent appearance on the FOX Business Network, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggested that the tables will be turned when Republicans retake control of Congress, which most people expect to happen next fall.
Gingrich went so far as to suggest that some members of the January 6th Committee could ultimately face jail time when the shoe is on the other foot.
He also described the actions of the Jan 6 Committee as a lynch mob.
From the Insider via MSN:
Newt Gingrich says that Jan. 6 Committee is ‘basically a lynch mob’ that could go to jail if Republicans get power
Gingrich, a Republican and Fox News contributor, made the comments during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”
“You have both with the Attorney General Garland and with this Select Committee of January 6th, people who have run amok,” said Gingrich, who served as speaker from 1995 to 1999 and unsuccessfully ran for president in 2012.
“They are breaking the rules. They are going after people in a way which is reminiscent of the British monarchy using closed-door systems that we outlawed deliberately because we had seen it. We knew what it was like. They are running over peoples’ civil liberties,” he added.
The committee is “literally just running over the law” and “pursuing innocent people,” Gingrich said, claiming the committee is “basically a lynch mob” and that Garland is “misusing the FBI.”
“What they need to understand is on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House, and a Republican majority in the Senate,” Gingrich predicted Sunday, adding “all these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are gonna be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email.”

People on the left are going bonkers over this but what do they expect?
Democrats have acted like complete authoritarians for over two years now.
