Report: FBI has recordings of Newt Gingrich setting up Trump-Russia meetings during campaign

Newt Gingrich’s swift flip-flop on Special Counsel Robert Mueller over the past month has raised eyebrows as to what his true motivation might be. Why would he go from strongly supporting to Mueller to suddenly accusing him of deranged conspiracies? According to one intel community report, it may be because Gingrich has been caught up in the investigation himself.

Here’s what Newt Gingrich had to say on May 17th: “Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down” (link). But two days ago Gingrich completely changed his worldview of Mueller, putting on his tinfoil hat and stating “The brazen redefinition of Mueller’s task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything” (link). At the time we thought Gingrich might have been posting intentionally insane things just to try to get attention for his new book, which launched earlier this week. But now there’s a much darker plotline.

According to political insider Puesto Loco, whose intel community sources have proven themselves correct in the past, “FBI has Sept, 2016 tapes of Newt Gingrich setting up multiple Team Trump/Russia meetings with Kislyak et al.” (link). To be clear, this is a single sourced report that has not been corroborated or confirmed by other sources or news outlets, so take it for what it’s worth. But it would explain a whole lot.

Newt Gingrich was a key campaign adviser for Donald Trump, and at one point was thought to be in contention to be his running mate. But by the time Trump took office, Gingrich was on the outside looking in. He didn’t even get a whiff of a cabinet post nomination, despite being one of the few people in the Trump campaign with governing experience. Did Trump shut out Gingrich for fear that his Russia ties might be exposed during confirmation hearings? Stay tuned.
