Former House Speaker Puts Merrick Garland on Notice, Warns that Targeting of Donald Trump Could Land him Obstruction of Justice Charge

During an appearance on Fox News, former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich speculated that Attorney General Merrick Garland is in “grave danger” of obstruction of justice charges.

Most of the discussion with Gingrich was over the huge revelations brought forth by Devon Archer’s testimony from Monday. With his testimony, Archer apparently blew out of the water Joe Biden’s claim he had no involvement in his son’s foreign business dealings.

Archer testified to the fact that Joe was brought in on 20 phone calls with his son Hunter Biden while on the board of Ukraine energy company Burisma. Joe also attended at least two dinners with his son in connection to Burisma as well.

Gingrich cited the apparent dereliction of the Garland and Biden DOJ in doing anything to hold the Biden family accountable for alleged criminal activity.

Gingrich pointed out that Jack Smith has charged former President Donald Trump with a law that was passed over a century ago. He then cited a law that the Biden family could be charged under from around the same period of time. Gingrich noted Garland is targeting the former president while allowing the current one to slide.

“The only cabinet officer ever to go to jail was Attorney General John Mitchell for obstruction of justice,” Gingrich noted.

He added, “I am absolutely certain that the current Attorney General Merrick Garland is in grave danger of being charged with obstruction of justice and with having destroyed the system.”

“I think Congress frankly should be right now subpoenaing all the documents between Smith and Garland because I think Garland’s been directing this I think the timing is weird,” Gingrich stated.

He called the charging of former president Trump, “blatantly disgustingly political,” after pointing out that every time a bombshell about the Biden family’s alleged criminal activity is dropped, new charges seem to come forth against Trump the following day.
