Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has created controversy by stating that the members of the January 6 House Committee, investigating the US Capitol Insurrection, will face jail time when and if the Republican Party gains control of the House of Representatives in the 2022 Midterm Congressional Elections this November!
This is a stunning statement, as what is being done by the January 6 House Committee is perfectly legitimate, as the events of January 6 were a breakdown of law and order, an illegal act of violence, sedition, and treason by all who participated in that tragic event, or encouraged it by their words and actions!
Gingrich is well known for corruption and scandal during his years in the House of Representatives, and is a loose cannon who craves attention, since he is no longer a factor in the Congress, and hardly noticed on the political scene.
This craziness only adds to the image of a man who has an historical record of negativism that no sane person would wish as his legacy!
He can be held responsible for the decline in civility in American politics, that began in the mid 1990s, and was utilized by Donald Trump!
