Eric Swalwell was up to more bizarre Russia accusations directed at President Trump while appearing on MSNBC.
When pressed on whether or not he still believes that Trump is a “Russian asset,” Swalwell replied, “I think he acts on Russia’s behalf, and I challenge him to show me otherwise.”
Newt Gingrich swiftly shut Swalwell down after seeing the clip.
Newt began by saying, “Look, we live in the age of the Kardashians. Anyone who wants to pretend they’re a Presidential candidate gets to be on TV.”
He added, “They get to shoot their mouth off. They get to say anything they want to say. That doesn’t mean the rest of us have to take them seriously.” Video Below
“Trump has been much tougher on Russia than Obama ever was,” Gingrich continued. “The sanctions have been much more intense against Russia. He has stood up to the Russians in a number of cases. We’re selling weapons to Ukraine that Obama would never sell them, in order to stop the Russians.”
Newt then declared, “So, I think this idea that there is somehow there’s some secret, invisible relationship is just goofy.”
He went on to say that because there are so many Democrat candidates in the race, they’re willing to say literally anything to get attention and to get to the next interview. Video Below
