In the wake of the two bombshell Project Veritas videos that show Democratic operatives engaging in nefarious and possibly illegal campaign activities, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a pointed question:
“Where is the FBI, why is the FBI not investigating this?” he asked, “You have a deliberate, willful effort to foment violence, to break up a presidential campaign, [and] to intimidate voters.”
Gingrich joined Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday evening to discuss the undercover video tapes released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The former speaker said that there needs to be an investigation into the Clinton campaign right now, because there is direct evidence linking one of the miscreants to the Clinton campaign: “We also now have actual checks cut by the campaign to one of the operatives,” Gingrich noted.
“I know [FBI Director Jim] Comey’s in the tank for Hillary but he has some obligation to enforce the law and the FBI should be opening up an investigation…right now,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich went on to insist that Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell draft a letter to to Director Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch demanding an immediate investigation. “Insist that the FBI, NOW, immediately, before the election, investigate this,” he said.
“It’s amazing how fast the Obama administration could get FBI agents to a variety of places that fit their agenda — this is not about politics … this is about a fundamental threat to our democracy.”
When Gingrich spoke of “actual checks cut by the campaign,” he was referring to progressive activist Zulema Rodriguez.
Project Veritas caught Rodriguez bragging on tape about disrupting multiple Trump campaign rallies with violent protests. She even took credit for the protests in Chicago that forced Trump to cancel a rally back in March. Rodriguez is on the Clinton campaign payroll, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveal.
