Newt answers “Why I will not accept Joe Biden as president” in new Op-Ed

in a new Op-Ed for the Washington Times, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich answers the question “Why I will not accept Joe Biden as president.”

In the Op-Ed Gingrich begins by mentioning a friend recently asked him why he was not recognizing Joe Biden’s victory.

Gingrich writes  “in 2016, I supported an outsider candidate, who was rough around the edges and in the Andrew Jackson school of controversial assaults on the old order. When my candidate won, it was blamed on the Russians. We now know (four years later) Hillary Clinton’s own team financed the total lie that fueled this attack.”

He continues “members of the FBI twice engaged in criminal acts to help it along — once in avoiding prosecution of someone who had deleted 33,000 emails and had a subordinate use a hammer to physically destroy hard drives, and a second time by lying to FISA judges to destroy Gen. Michael Flynn and spy on then-candidate Donald Trump and his team. The national liberal media aided and abetted every step of the way. All this was purely an attempt to cripple the new president and lead to the appointment of a special counsel — who ultimately produced nothing.”

“Now, people in my world are told it is time to stop resisting and cooperate with the new president,” Gingrich says “But we remember that the Democrats wanted to cooperate with Mr. Trump so much that they began talking about his impeachment before he even took office. The Washington Post ran a story on Democrat impeachment plots the day of the inauguration.”

Newt specifies “in fact, nearly 70 Democratic lawmakers boycotted his inauguration. A massive left-wing demonstration was staged in Washington the day after, where Madonna announced she dreamed of blowing up the White House to widespread applause. These same forces want me to cooperate with their new president. I find myself adopting the Nancy Pelosi model of constant resistance. Nothing I have seen from Mr. Biden since the election offers me any hope that he will reach out to the more than 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump.”

“So, I am not reacting to the votes so much as to the whole election environment,” Gingrich adds.
