Gingrich: The Difference Between Trump and Clinton Impeachment Is Starr Report Said Clinton Was Guilty

‘If Mueller had issued a report that said Donald Trump was guilty on 11 counts, there would be an impeachment effort’

EXCERPT:

SHAPIRO: “A lot of Democrats are pushing for impeachment, not Nancy Pelosi who knows better, but a lot of the other Democrats at this point are pushing impeachment. Obviously, you were involved in the impeachment effort against President Clinton. I wonder if you could distinguish the two. What were the grounds that you think were appropriate to impeach President Clinton as opposed to the attempts to impeach President Trump?”

GINGRICH: “I always tell people if you go back and look at Ken Starr's report, I went back and pulled it up because I had that exact question, it was a long time ago. Ken Starr issued a report that had 11 counts on which [Clinton] was guilty. Five of them are obstruction. This count, guilty, this count guilty.  If Mueller had issued a report that said Donald Trump was guilty on 11 counts, there would be an impeachment effort. it would probably fail because the Senate would not vote to [convict]. Just as the House impeached but the Senate refused to convict with Clinton, which might have been the correct constitutional solution.”
