Newt Gingrich offers insight into ‘twisted’ Comey decision – ‘indefensible pretzel of contradictions’

Donald Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich put into words what many people were thinking about FBI Director James Comey’s surprise announcement that his original assessment that charges not be brought against Hillary Clinton hasn’t changed.

The political pressure being brought to bear on the bureau’s director must be enormous for him to reach the determinations he has, the former U.S. House speaker concluded.

In his surprise letter to Congress, Comet said that after eight days of sifting through hundreds of thousands of newly-discovered emails and “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

Gingrich took to Twitter to offer his observations:

He added that he didn’t much like seeing what was happening to Comey in the process.

But while the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state may have hit a dead-end — at least until there’s a change in administrations — the FBI is continuing its probe into the Clinton Foundation.
