At a Washington Post event in October 2018, Newt Gingrich said he thought Trump doesn’t have “any fear” the Democrats will “investigate” him if they take the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. Gingrich also claimed Trump was only raising that fear among his base for votes. When asked what Trump would do if the Democrats subpoenaed his tax returns, “They’ll be trapped into appealing to the Supreme Court, and we’ll see whether or not the Kavanaugh fight was worth it,” Gingrich said.

They are not even trying to hide their duplicity.
