Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's impeachment inquiry is a "total mockery" of the U.S. justice system, doing this investigation in "secret" to damage President Donald Trump before the 2020 election, former Speaker Newt Gingrich said.

"What Pelosi has done is a total mockery," Gingrich told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "It's not the rule of law.

"In fact, the entire concept of due process in the Bill of Rights was built around the repudiation of the ability of the government to frame you without you ever meeting your accuser."

Gingrich pointed to the House's lack of an impeachment vote, which is allowing them to conduct the investigation behind closed doors and effectively leak damaging information against the president, like the whistleblower – "who really should just be called a leaker," Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis

"The idea that that can be done in secret, and we'll never know who made the charges and what the basis of it was, this goes against everything in the American system," he said. "It is doomed just to collapse, because the American people have an innate sense of fairness. And that sense of fairness is being totally . . . destroyed by the way that Pelosi and the Democrats are proceeding."
