WATCH: Newt say Jan. 6 panel is “basically a lynch mob” that could go to jail if GOP regain power

Appearing on Fox News, Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich ripped Biden Admin AG Merrick Garland and January 6th committee, calling them a  “basically a lynch mob.”

Newt suggested if Republicans regain power, as they are expected to do after 2022 midterm elections, the select committee could go to jail.

Gingrich said “You have both with the Attorney General Garland and with this Select Committee of January 6th, people who have run amok.”

“They are breaking the rules. They are going after people in a way which is reminiscent of the British monarchy using closed-door systems that we outlawed deliberately because we had seen it. We knew what it was like. They are running over peoples’ civil liberties,” he continued.

Gingrich added by claiming the committee is “literally just running over the law” and “pursuing innocent people,” calling them “basically a lynch mob.”

“What they need to understand is on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House, and a Republican majority in the Senate.”

He then warned “all these people who have been so tough and so mean and so nasty are gonna be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email.”
