The nonprosecution of fired FBI Director James Comey and the likely knowledge of former President Barack Obama during the undercover surveillance of President Donald Trump do not sit well with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who says "the fix is in."

"There's a story that the woman who tried to bribe her son into a university, that she and her husband got caught, that they are now facing 40 years in jail – now, how can we not prosecute Comey?" Gingrich told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "How can we not prosecute [fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe? How can we say that they've done all the terrible things that the inspector general said they did, but they're somehow above the law?

"People are not going to have any faith in the system until people who are guilty are prosecuted and are treated like everybody else.

"I think that's a very, very big problem. It's clear that no matter how bad they were, the fix is in, and they're not going to be prosecuted."

Gingrich said the chain of politicization of prosecution goes all the way through the Obama era attorney general to the president himself.

"With everything we're learning from the inspector general's report, how is it conceivable that the attorney general and the president didn't know about it?" Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis, adding, "given what a hands-on and dynamic president that Barack Obama was, do you really believe all these things happened and the attorney general and the president didn't know it?"

Gingrich finished with a call for more declassification of documents in the investigation of the investigators so "the American people can render judgment about what their view of this."

"There are a number of documents that had to be declassified and released that will tell us a great deal more about what happened from about 2012 to 2017," Gingrich said. "A real test for Attorney General Barr is going to be, will he insist that those documents be released so the American people can know what happened? And the American people can render judgment about what their view of this is."
