Newt Gingrich Says 1/6 Committee Members May Face Jail

It’s worth noting that Newton has been working behind the scenes with Q-evin McQarthy on how to retake the House in 2022.

“You’re going to have a Republican majority in the House and a Republican majority in the Senate. And all of these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas,” Gingrich said,  adding the lawmakers heading up the commission are “just running over the law.”  

“And I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down,” he continued. “And the wolves are going to find out they are now sheep and they’re the ones who are going to face a real risk of, I think, jail for the kind of laws they’re breaking.”

The two Republicans on the select committee each tweeted a response to Newton’s absurdity:
