Enter former Speaker and Fox News Contributor Newt Gingrich, who proved a willing relay race member, taking the baton and claiming “this may be the most egregious abuse of the criminal justice process in American history.” He then added “the country that you and I know is under siege by a deep state which illegally wants to create a very different America and is willing to break the wall and a abuse the law.”

“This is a radically bigger scandal than anything about Russia,” claimed Gingrich, which is almost certainly what viewers of Hannity already believe and want to hear. Is that true? Time will tell, but over the top statements like this almost never turn out to be correct predictions, though they do lead to decent cable news ratings.
