Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is growing increasingly alarmed about the state of America after former President Donald Trump’s fourth indictment earlier this week in Georgia.

Gingrich appeared Monday evening on Fox News’ “Hannity” program to respond to reports that the indictment was coming.

After host Sean Hannity asked him for his view, the former Speaker made a horrific prediction.

“I think what you’re seeing tonight is one tree in a forest, and I think we are drifting towards the greatest Constitutional crisis since the 1850s and the rise of secession and the Civil War. I don’t mean that as hyperbole,” he began.

“If you read Andy McCarthy’s remarkable book, ‘Ball of Collusion,’ which came out in 2019, he makes very clear that it is Barack Obama who corrupts the Justice Department, it is Hillary Clinton who routinely breaks the law and gets away with it, and now we have Joe Biden who has learned,” Gingrich continued.

“He’s learned from Obama — that is, [it] doesn’t matter what you do, if you’re a liberal Democrat, you will not be prosecuted. He learned from Hillary that a person in high public office can get millions and millions of dollars. And they learned from watching Donald Trump that a true outsider, willing to take on the entire system, could destroy their entire machine,” he added.

“So what you’re seeing across the country is the desperate, last-ditch effort of the corrupt machine to destroy their most dangerous opponent in a way which not only breaks the Constitution, [but also] destroys the rule of law, and establishes a moment of bitterness that I think will last for a generation or more,” Gingrich said.

“I think this is going to be a horrendous period, and we just need to understand the people who want to control America and dictate to the rest of us will break any law, lie about any topic, and manipulate you any way they can, and that includes a lot of the elite news media,” he said.
