4:05 PM ET – Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House and author of Trump’s America: The Truth about Our Nation’s Great Comeback, his latest NY Times bestseller will be at the Barnes & Noble in Ashburn, VA tonight.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Saturday that he and other allies of President Donald Trump are “prepared for war” as special counsel Robert Mueller plans to write up his findings on the Russia investigation by the end of the summer.

“It’ll be a moment that polarizes the country, exposing just how divided the country is about this investigation and who’s on the other side,” Gingrich, the former Georgia congressman who was speaker from 1995 to 1999, told The Washington Post.

Mueller is expected to complete his report by then, the Post reported Saturday, and Trump’s personal attorneys are deliberating how to rebut the findings.

Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, told the Post that he would use the report from the Justice Department’s inspector general slamming the FBI that was released Thursday to demand a new special counsel.

5:05 PM ET – Sara Carter, Fox News Contributor and Investigative Reporter and David Schoen, Civil Liberties Attorney, discuss the IG report and the stunning revelations that it broke last week. With the text messages between agents about the stupidity of the Trump voter to the cohesive effort to ensure that the duly elected President never made it to office. And something that is getting very little exposure is that James Comey, the Former FBI director who oversaw Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, was using a personal email as well.

Maybe that’s why he couldn’t find anything wrong with her actions?

According to the watchdog’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation unveiled Thursday, Comey used his personal Gmail account on “numerous” occasions to conduct his work as head of the FBI, despite the Justice Department implementing a policy in 2016 that forbade such a practice. The report listed five examples between 2016 and 2017 of Comey using the Gmail account for FBI business, including to draft documents and public statements. One of the emails had an attachment with a list of titles, contact information, and duty hours for FBI employees.

Comey defended his use of the personal account, saying he did not use it for classified or sensitive information. When he was asked by Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s team about whether his use of a private email was consistent with FBI regulations, Comey said, “I don’t know. I think so.”

The verdict? The IG report concluded Comey’s multiple uses of personal email to conduct bureau business was “inconsistent” with DOJ policy. (H/T WASHINGTON EXAMINER)
