Gingrich: Trump ‘Fired Comey Because Comey’s Public Behavior Was So Destructive’

‘Comey would not say in public what he was saying to Trump in private, which is you’re not being investigated’

RUSH EXCERPT:

GINGRICH: He didn’t impede the investigation. There’s no evidence. First of all, the FBI itself has said, they have all the money they have asked for. They have had no problems getting resources. I think he fired Comey because Comey’s public behavior was so destructive.

RADDATZ: He said he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation.

GINGRICH: Right, because Comey would not say in public what he was saying to Trump in private, which is you’re not being investigated.

Trump just wanted people to understand, fine, there’s a Russian investigation. It doesn’t involve the president of the United States. And Comey apparently said that to him on three occasions.
