Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) by saying, “Democrats have a compulsion to lie because the truth kills them,” referring to the serious crimes committed by former President Bill Clinton.
“The fact is, there were 11 counts of guilty in the independent counsel’s report, including perjury, which as Nancy knows is, in fact, a felony,” Gingrich specified.
“Clinton lost his license to practice law in Arkansas,” said Gingrich on Dec. 5, according to Fox News.
Gingrich then recommended Pelosi review former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on President Donald Trump’s false collusion with Russia, noting that the word “guilty” is not mentioned anywhere.
Pelosi had mocked the Republicans’ impeachment of Clinton in 1998, and the claims that President Trump’s actions with Ukraine did not have the character of contestable crimes.
One of the cases against Clinton is known as the Whitewater scandal, which involves the purchase of land in Arkansas. He was also investigated for his relationships with Arkansas state employee Paula Jones and White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Pelosi announced the same day that efforts to impeach President Trump will continue.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recalled that Democrats have been conspiring to remove President Trump from office since the beginning of his presidency, so there was no “new news” in the announcement, according to what he told to the press.
The procedures followed in the controversial Democrat-driven impeachment present many irregularities, and witnesses did not provide answers or demonstrate President Trump’s misconduct and instead left room for many questions.
