Newt Gingrich is Seriously Freaking Out About Mueller’s Obstruction of Justice Investigation into Trump

If you want to know how serious the implications of FBI’s special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into president Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice are, just take a look at Newt Gingrich’s twitter feed. 

Gingrich, one of the (relatively) more sane Trump stooges in politics, is no dummy and he understands that this could well mean the end of Trump’s presidency:

One of the funniest things about Trump’s political hacks is their insistence that the “Deep State” is going after their guy — a vague, dark entity that apparently consists of shadowy government figures who have sworn to destroy Trump and restore the Clintons to power, or something. This “Deep State” did not exist under George W. Bush, or even under Obama, and only sprung into action once Trump came into power, and can only be recognized by the far right, or far left. 

An alternative take on this is that there are still government employees who take their jobs seriously and want to prevent the presidency from being turned into a money making scheme for the Trump family at the expense of, you know, democracy and the rule of law. But then Newt Gingrich — a self professed visionary with dreams of going to Mars and building a moon colony — has always had problems relating to reality. 

Gingrich and other Trump acolytes will be bleating on about the “Deep State” and other nefarious forces trying to take down the president in the coming weeks — a sign that Mueller’s investigation genuinely has them rattled.
