Newt Gingrich’s lack of self-awareness is utterly and totally astonishing.
The former Republican U.S. House speaker told Fox News this week that he is amazed and stunned that congressional Democrats would have the nerve to impeach Donald Trump this close to Christmas.
Why, that is just appalling, he said. How can Democrats possibly sully this holy event with such a display of blatant partisanship?
Well, let’s flash back 21 years, shall we?
The GOP-led House of Representatives, led by Speaker Newt Gingrich, received articles of impeachment from the Judiciary Committee in its effort to impeach President Bill Clinton. When did the full House vote on those articles and formally impeach the president?
They did it on the week of Christmas, 1998! The date was Dec. 19.
So, my demand of the former speaker today is clear and concise.
Shut … up!
