Newt Gingrich has one of the sharpest minds in Washington, DC. Yesterday on ABC News he pointed out how the combination of leaks and investigations is becoming a total farce.
At what point will we need a special counsel to investigate the special counsel?
Here’s a transcript via Real Clear Politics:
GINGRICH: I think he’s furious. I think Trump sits there and says, let me get this straight, I know I didn’t do anything with the Russians. Comey has said three times I didn’t do anything with the Russians. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof I did anything with the Russians. And now I get an independent counsel who is going to mess up at least the next year, at a minimum, and who, by the way, you’ll notice is expanding his charge.
I mean, now they’re talking about not the Russians, they’re talking about obstruction. Now they’re talking about going and looking at financial files, if you believe the leak. And I said yesterday, you get two more leaks like this, Rosenstein is going to have to appoint a special counsel to investigate the special counsel.

Gingrich is spot on here. The whole thing is starting to look completely ridiculous.
