Reaction and analysis from Fox News contributors and former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich.

The former speaker of the house of representatives Newt Gingrich on Monday appeared to play down a recent report that Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, would you advance to take a stand against President Trump the impeachment investigation should be made of the second chamber of Congress for a vote.

Gingrich, who fought against Romney in 2012 for the Republican party presidential nomination, said on Fox News’ The Ingraham angle that Romney gave a lot of influence in the Senate, he represents the “old order”, or pre-Trump-era of the GOP.


“The truth is that I have to pay attention to Mitt Romney. I don’t think Mitt Romney’s Affairs, the long-term in American political history,” Gingrich told Fox News Host Laura Ingraham. “He certainly does not matter, in one of Donald Trump’s Republican party. I think he is a fossilized element, the disappearance of a party.”

Gingrich made the remarks in response to a piece published in the Atlantic Sunday with the title “The liberation of Mitt Romney.” The detailed story of how the experienced Utah senator now considers himself free of party constraints and instead, to secure, if necessary, would be superior to his legacy, to vote in favour of the impeachment of trump.

“I don’t believe it,’ said that Mitt is not already in prison, so I know what he is freed from,” Gingrich. “At the end I have a hunch that Romney will be careful about all of these, and I’d be a little surprised if he’s not in the end vote against a conviction, when in fact it comes up in the Senate.”

Ingraham also points to Romney, the last address in the Senate the rejection of the United States to intervene, or lack thereof, in the conflict in Syria. Romney, to be the once sought, Secretary of State, said: “What we have done to the Kurds is as a bloodstain will on the annals of American history.”

Gingrich said the remark was “a fairly ignorant comment about the Turkey. The Turkey is a large country with a relatively large military. Our major airbase in the region is in Turkey. Anyone suggesting that you just shrugging Turkey does not understand something about the power structures of the Middle East.”

Gingrich put his appearance through the comparison of football to the recent “goof” made by the White house chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, first in a press briefing, and then in an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace about whether Trump’s infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky proven quid pro quo quo.


“Last week, for the first time in the 100 year history of the Packers, Aaron Rogers is a perfect game had. There is a lot to learn, not throw interceptions and not fumble,” Gingrich said. “And, I think, the White house could slow down a little and give us a couple of weeks of error-free ball.”
