Newt Gingrich isn’t pulling any punches. Appearing on The Story Thursday, Newt Gingrich says in regards to the White House Leakers, “He ought to lock somebody up,” Gingrich said. “The people who leaked the British story were not in the White House. They were in the intelligence community, and they ought to go to jail.”
Senior adviser and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is under the FBI’s radar as part of their on-going investigation into the so-called Russian-collusion between Russia and the Trump administration.
Gingrich went on to say, “I find that, frankly, sickening,” Gingrich said, explaining that these reports are distracting from Trump’s “amazing, historic” foreign trip.
“How do you know any of it’s true?” Gingrich asked.
As written for Fox News:
The report, which cited numerous unnamed U.S. officials, said investigators think that Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, has substantial information relevant to the investigation.
This does not mean that officials necessarily suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him, the report said.
Gingrich also noted that there’s not a single named source for the story, much like The Washington Post report last week that claimed a senior White House official close to the president was described as a “person of interest” in the Russia probe.
