Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he was told by a reliable source that a request was made from Washington, D.C., to Fulton County DA Fani Willis, demanding she indict President Donald Trump because they desperately needed distraction from the “screw-up” with Special Counsel David Weiss.
“I am told—this is hearsay—but I am told by a reliable source that Friday evening, somebody from Washington called the district attorney in Atlanta and said, ‘You have to indict on Monday. We have to cover up all of the mistakes we just made with Weiss,'” Gingrich told Charlie Kirk in an interview.
“And she said, apparently, ‘My jurors aren’t coming back till Tuesday,’ and they said, ‘You didn’t hear me,” Gingrich said.
“You have to indict on Monday,’ And she said, ‘Well, they’re not gonna get here before noon.’ They said, ‘That doesn’t matter.’ She says, ‘This means it’s going to be eight or nine or 10 o’clock at night.’ They said, ‘It doesn’t matter,” he added.
“Who made that phone call?” asked Kirk.
“We don’t know,” Gingrich said. “And that’s why I’m telling you upfront, this is hearsay, but it’s from a person who has remarkably good sources.”
“I totally believe it, though,” Kirk replied.
“Because that would explain why they leaked and they messed up on the clerk document. Why she was exhausted, and why they had the 11 pm press conference.”
Gingrich made the remarks after Trump and 18 associates were indicted on multiple charges, including violating the Georgia RICO Act, solicitation of oath violation, and various conspiracy and false statement offenses.
Although Gingrich’s claims come from hearsay, it fits with the murky circumstances surrounding the Trump indictment and past indictments.
Trump’s prior federal indictments immediately followed bad news days for Joe Biden.
It seems like a distraction.
This also puts into question Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment.
On the same day that Trump was indicted in April, Biden’s former aid, Kathy Chung, testified before the House Oversight Committee, which contracted the White House’s account of Biden’s handling of classified documents.
Chung testified that the documents were not stored in a secured closet.
It’s all starting to make sense!
