Newt Gingrich Plays Goebbels for Trump in Insane Attack on Justice Department and Mueller

Gingrich smears the DOJ's mission as a leftist vendetta.

By Steven Rosenfeld / AlterNet July 26, 2017, 11:22 AM GMT

"The Trump administration, which has been caught lying hundreds of times and continues to ceaselessly attack the media, sunk to new lows Tuesday as former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich launched an attack worthy of Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.

Gingrich, who has never shied away from verbal jousting, held forth on NPR’s Morning Edition in an outrageous, eight-minute attack on the federal Department of Justice, smearing the DOJ as a “left-wing” institution bending laws and abusing its authority to destroy lives. He said the lawyers who are overseeing the special counsel investigating the 2016 Trump campaign’s ties to Russia are all Democrats, as evidenced by donations to institutions supporting that party.

Gingrich glossed over the fact that special counsel Robert Mueller is a Republican—as NPR host Rachel Martin interjected—and countered that the DOJ is filled with Trump-hating career staffers. He said Mueller’s first hires included lawyers who were “killers,” predicting they would stop at nothing to convict Trump associates of fake crimes.

Gingrich's assault did not merely seek to delegitimize the ongoing investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia—which may bleed over into Trump's business deals with Kremlin-connected Russians. It was also an attack on the DOJ’s mission, writ large, which includes enforcing anti-corruption laws—which Gingrich fully knows, being the first Speaker of the House ever fined while in office for ethical breaches ($300,000 in 1997).

While Gingrich plays the part of the loyal foot soldier to Trump, his attack fits the administration's pattern of seeking to delegitimize critics in the press and the government who do not embrace Trump’s far-right agenda. Gingrich's attacks intentionally distort the DOJ’s mission, the basis of Mueller’s role and the legitimacy of the Trump-Russia probe. The purportedly anti-Trump lawyers he names all have Jewish surnames. Gingrich is vying to be Trump’s attack-dog minister of propaganda. Goebbels would be proud.

Gingrich opened his attack by attacking the DOJ as a bastion of leftists, offering proof via guilt by association, which could be seen, he said, by the vast majority of their presidential campaign contributions going to Clinton.

“The Justice Department is an extraordinarily left-wing institution,” Gingrich began. “Ninety-seven percent of its donations went to Hillary Clinton. It has an embedded bureaucracy, which was captured very, very well by Sidney Powell in her [2014] book, Licensed to Lie. And I think that he’s [Trump] deeply troubled by the entire way that both Comey and Mueller have operated, and the degree to which the attorney general has not exercised any authority over that.”..."

Mr Newt will forever be the blubbering crybaby on the cover of the Daily News. A perfect lackey for the pretender in chief.

Pat Buchanan was on CNN this morning basically calling John McCain a traitor, and then strangely started talking about how the Mueller investigation is out of control and how they need to be brought back into focus on the Russian investigation and not allow a general investigation. It seems to be that this is becoming a talking point for Republicans that they want to kill the investigation.

Do you want accountability from govt or not?

I have government accountability. I vote. Now please do not confuse as you do criminal behavior which is NOT the usual government behavior with criminal behavior. The Justice Department has done a great job in our nation's history finding and prosecuting criminals. Our government is not perfect, but democracy is not a perfect process.......just the best process.

You may speak out about holder now... but you certainly didn't during Obama's first term.

Your credibility is shot. Find a knitting circle or sumthin.

Should have happened 5 years ago when nobody was prosecuted for the economic melt down. Worst AG since Mitchell.

He has to lie when his positions are fallow. He swallows right wing propaganda and when people counter with logic and facts, he accuses them of ignoring faults in government and not being consistent. The only thing consistent is that PK thinks we do not need government and all government is bad. It is child like, and then he tells stories about other people's positions. I guess if the very lies he claims exist are the same methods he uses, one begins to understand his belief that all people in government are liars. I have seen good people making government work. I do not even remotely recognize the lie packed paradigm PK lives by.....

Trump's White House is so terminally ill, I'm surprised Gingrich hasn't tried to divorce it. https://t.co/zcTzurqOOh
