If you still thought that the indictments of former President Donald Trump are legitimate and not political at all, think again.

During an interview on Real America’s Voice streaming network with host Charlie Kirk, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he heard from a highly “reliable source” that Fulton County District Attorney was given instructions by “someone in Washington” to indict Trump late Monday evening instead of the following day, when the grand jury returned.
He speculated that the reason behind the urgency was to divert attention from a mishap involving David Weiss, the U.S. attorney — who spent years investigating Hunter Biden, refused to bring any serious charges, and then cut a sweetheart plea bargain with Hunter’s defense attorneys — after he was granted special counsel status the previous Friday by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
After claiming that the story was “hearsay,” Gingrich clarified that the source nevertheless has historically been very accurate.
“I am told by a reliable source that Friday evening somebody from Washington called the District Attorney of Atlanta and said, you have to indict on Monday. We have to cover up all of the mistakes we just made with Weiss,” he explained.
“And she said, apparently, ‘My jurors aren’t coming back until Tuesday,'” Gingrich continued.
“‘You didn’t hear me. You have to on Monday,'” he added, quoting the alleged Washington sources.
“‘But they’re not gonna get her before noon,'” Gingrich noted further, quoting Willis. “They said, ‘That doesn’t matter.’ She said, ‘This means that it’s gonna be eight or nine or ten o’clock.’ They said, ‘It doesn’t matter. We need the news shifting off of Weiss.”
Kirk asked Gingrich who made the phone call, but Gingrich said he didn’t have that information.
“I’m telling you upfront, this is hearsay, but it’s from a person who has remarkably good sources,” Gingrich said.
