4:05 PM ET – Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House and author of the upcoming book, Trump’s America, out next week on Tuesday, June 5th. Wrote an op-ed on what he perceives to be the five scandals of Robert Mueller and his counsel:

The current Robert Mueller-Justice Department-Russia mess is almost impossible to understand because it is made up of five parallel scandals.

For months, as I wrote my new book, “Trump’s America,” I tried to better understand news as it emerged from the Justice Department – and I still am trying. There are so many moving parts, personalities and dates that it is difficult to track. However, as a trained historian, I began creating an orderly outline for people, dates and events.

I realized that the scandal is so big, so complex, and involves so many people with power that codifying it really required me to draw from my experience writing novels. There are so many egos and there is so much manipulative behavior, dishonesty (and dishonesty about the dishonesty) that it is very difficult to explain it as a straightforward history. It could be more easily explained as a narrative of ambition, illegality and criminal plotting. (h/t Fox News)

4:30 PM ET – Andy McCarthy, columnist for National Review. He served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and he is outraged by Rep. Gowdy’s comments yesterday:

Trey Gowdy and Marco Rubio evidently paid little attention to testimony before their own committees on how Obama officials made the Trump campaign the subject of a counterintelligence investigation.

Well, well, well. The bipartisan Beltway establishment has apparently had its fill of this “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative — the same narrative the same establishment has lustily peddled for nearly two years. The Obama administration recklessly chose to deploy the government’s awesome counterintelligence powers to investigate — and, more to the point, to smear — its political opposition as a Kremlin confederate. Now that this ploy has blown up on the Justice Department and the FBI, these agencies — the ones that went out of their way, and outside their guidelines, to announce to the world that the Trump campaign was under investigation — want you to know the president and his campaign were not investigated at all, no siree.

What could possibly have made you imagine such a thing?

And so, to douse the controversy with cold water, dutifully stepping forward in fine bipartisan fettle are the Obama administration’s top intelligence official and two influential Capitol Hill Republicans who evidently pay little attention to major testimony before their own committees.

5:05 PM ET – Jonathan Gilliam, author of the newly released book, Sheep No More, and Geraldo Rivera, Fox News Legal Analyst and author of The Geraldo Show, debate the double standards of our media. The latest example of Roseanne Barr being fired from ABC with her comments on Twitter, cause us to take a moment and reflect on those things that were said by other hosts, some on the same network, who were given a pass. What does this say about our media?
