Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped-by ‘Hannity’ on Thursday night, telling Sean that all Americans should be “frightened” over the Obama administration’s staggering amount of “unmasking” requests and demanding Congress open-up a federal investigation into the illegal practice.
“We have never ever in American history had as many different scandalous behaviors by a President and his team as we are now learning from Barack Obama,” said Gingrich.
“When I look at what Samantha Power was doing, by itself that’s unbelievable. Why does the UN ambassador have to unmask anybody? My number one goal in this conversation is to get across that the House and the Senate have to open up serious in-depth investigations,” he added.
“Ultimately, they’re going to have to ask President Obama: Did all of this occur and you didn’t know it?” asked Newt.
“Here’s the issue that really bothers me,” said Sean. “You’re right about the Republicans. You’re right about these investigations; they’re not happening though. The Deputy Attorney General didn’t appoint a special counsel here. I don’t know what the Attorney General Jeff Sessions is doing.”
“Attorney General Sessions did not recuse himself from any of the things we’re not discussing, he could instruct the FBI to open up a case,” said the former Speaker. “When you start seeing the power of the FBI or the power of the CIA… whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican you ought to be frightened about the future of freedom in America.”
