Newt Gingrich: 'Weak and Confused' Mueller 'Clearly' Didn't Run Probe

Former special counsel Robert Mueller's testimony leaves questions over whether he really wrote the report about the investigation he headed concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election and into President Donald Trump, ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday."

"Who was in charge?" Gingrich said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends."  "It was very clear he didn't know what was in the report. He clearly didn't have energy and focus to have managed the two-year investigation. I thought it was a sad moment."

Gingrich said back when Mueller was first appointed, he favored him because he thought the former FBI director, based on his background, was a good choice. "However, he turned the probe over 'to a group of left-wing, anti-Trump Democratic lawyers, and my guess is that they were ones who ran the investigation."

He added that he hopes the testimony following Mueller's "weak and confused" performance will open an internal investigation into who was really making decisions and authored the report, "because it is clearly not Bob Mueller. They used Mueller's reputation to hide behind while maybe they have their own agenda."

Meanwhile, Gingrich said he thinks Trump is in a good position to be re-elected, as Democrats are taking a series of "very radical positions."

"If every Democratic candidate raises their hand for some really stupid position, I think they're setting up one of the biggest choice election in American history," said Gingrich. "It is one that probably by 2-1 American people will reject the Democratic Party."

He added that he doubts front-runner former Vice President Joe Biden will get the nomination, let alone beat Trump. 

"He's not as far ahead as Hillary Clinton was in 2008 when she lost," said Gingrich, predicting that Sen. Kamala Harris will be the nominee and "she's going to lose in a really grand way" to Trump.
