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