Gingrich unloads on special counsel Robert Mueller: ‘The tip of the deep state spear aimed at’ TrumpBusiness Insider ^ | 6-15-2017 | Allan Smith Posted on 6/15/2017, 1:13:59 PM by blamFormer House Speaker Newt Gingrich, one of President Donald Trump’s top allies, went after special counsel Robert Mueller in a Thursday morning tweetstorm, calling the former FBI director “the tip of the deep state spear aimed at” Trump.Gingrich posted his tweets after The Washington Post reported Wednesday night that Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials now expanded to include a probe into whether Trump committed obstruction of justice with his firing of former FBI Director James Comey last month.Mueller is also seeking proof of whether Trump associates committed financial crimes.”Should now be clear Mueller is the ‘anti-Trump special counsel,'” Gingrich tweeted.The former House speaker wrote that Mueller “is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump’s life and his associates lives.” Very dangerous,” he wrote, saying it’s clear following the Post’s story that Mueller is “the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency.”

“The brazen redefinition of Mueller’s task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything,” he added.Gingrich’s posts came as Trump himself blasted out tweets on the Post’s story.”

They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story,” he wrote. “Nice.”Trump added that the investigation was “the single greatest WITCH HUNT” in US political history and is being led “by some very bad and conflicted people!”

Gingrich’s tweets marked a coming of full circle in an effort by some of Trump’s most prominent allies to delegitimize the Mueller-led investigation.(snip)
