FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's widely expanding investigation, most recently raiding President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen last week, represents "a breakdown" in the "concept of Constitutional rule of law," according to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who called "this really dangerous stuff."

"This is why we have a bill of rights," Gingrich told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y with John Catsimatidis.

". . . I think what we're watching is a breakdown of the whole concept of constitutional rule of law. I think it's really very sobering, and a real threat to every American."

Gingrich ridiculed the Department of Justice's following "Stalinist," anti-Constitutional process of "show me the man, and I will find the crime," while claiming the DOJ had let Hillary Clinton off the hook for some very specific indiscretions.

"What's really striking to me is, you have Hillary Clinton erase 33,000 emails," Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis. "You have her staff deeply involved. Do any of them get visited at 3 in the morning? Do any of them lose their lawyer-client privilege?

"No. It is so one-sided."

Gingrich point to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who signed off on the FISA warrant to surveil members of the opposing political party during the 2016 presidential campaign and ultimately assigned Mueller as the special counsel.

"The person to focus on is Rod Rosenstein and why is he blocking all the stuff?" Gingrich asked about a stalled request for documents surrounding the actions and process of the Justice Department.

". . . I think Rosenstein, who is a career justice department guy, I think he's trying to protect the department from huge embarrassment – and they're going to come out. People are not going to let them hide."
