    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Sunday’s “Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio that the elite media is against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. “It is a period of turmoil. A lot of Republicans get very scared. The elite media is 95 percent against Trump and they’re doing everything they can to fan the flames of a panic. The fact is that this race is a long, long way from over. The truth is that Hillary Clinton is probably the most dishonest person ever to run for president, and certainly the most corrupt ever to be nominated for president,”  Gingrich...

    Donald Trump has led in polling against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, and will "bounce back again," according to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. In an interview to air Sunday with businessman John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable," Gingrich acknowledged the last two weeks have been "tough" on the GOP nominee, but he called the post-convention political climate "a period of turmoil," The Hill reports, posting the remarks ahead of the show. "[P]eople need to remember, just before those two weeks, he was ahead in every poll, so the chance for him to bounce back again I think is very real,"...

    Republicans close to Donald Trump are planning an “intervention” aimed at resetting his campaign amid a political firestorm that has ensnared the controversial presidential nominee, according to a published report. NBC News said former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, along with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, are among the Trump allies who want to convince Trump to shift his tactics. The report comes after Trump lashed out at a Gold-Star family critical of his position on Muslim immigration and went on to decline to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan for re-election. Donald Trump...

    Donald Trump's behavior over the last week has been "very self-destructive" to his campaign, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday, comparing the Republican nominee to a Hall of Fame quarterback who is in the midst of an interception-throwing slump. "Trump is still behaving like as though it was the primaries and there were 17 candidates. He has not made the transition to being the potential president of the United States, which is a much tougher league," Gingrich said in an interview with Fox Business' "Mornings with Maria." "People are going to watch you every single day. They’re going to...

    Newt Gingrich spoke with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren live from Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Day One of the RNC convention Monday night. At the beginning of their conversation, they addressed the controversy around who is and who isn’t present at the convention as the Republican Party gets ready to crown Donald Trump their 2016 nominee. At least one speaker, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has yet to endorse the GOP nominee. Susteren asked Gingrich if he believed Trump’s former presidential opponent would finally announce his support for Trump during his speech Wednesday night. “Well I hope he does” endorse...

"Mike Pence is a great guy. And I am really relieved that Donald Trump picked a governor to be his running mate. He needs someone with him who has governed, who knows how to govern," Christie said.

In a pair of morning show interviews Monday on ABC and MSNBC, respectively, the former House speaker showed no hesitation in sharing his opinions on, among other topics, President Barack Obama, race in America, the Bush family and Trump’s campaign. Gingrich dismissed the notion that the lack of prominent Republicans at this week’s national convention in Cleveland represented some larger trouble within the GOP. He attacked 2012 Republican...

    Islam is at war with Kafirs, i.e. "unbelievers" who reject Islam. A cursory look around the globe will see Muslims slaughtering non-Muslims in not only Europe and America, but also Africa and Asia. In fact, they've killed far more Christians in Nigeria and Hindus in India than they have atheists in Europe. And of course they've killed far more Muslims who are "Kafirs" because they don't subscribe to the right particular interpretation of Islam. By casting it as "Islam versus the West" it allows the SJW types to make it seem as though this is just another chapter in the...

    The Bastille Day attack that killed 80 and injured 200 in Nice, France sparked a passionate plea from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for better security against Islamic terrorism. Gingrich said he has "no problems with Muslims who respect the rights of others becoming American citizens and moving in next door, but followers of sharia who believe they have a right or duty to wage war on unbelievers have no place in our country. They ought to be deported." He also called for "greater scrutiny of what's going on in Mosques in America. Many of them seem to serve as...

    As presumptive presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump move closer to selecting their vice presidential candidates, a new Morning Consult poll shows voters are largely unmoved by the supposed contenders. The national survey of more than 2,001 registered voters taken over the weekend shows just two potential picks generating at least some enthusiasm among Democrats and Republicans — former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton maintained her single point lead over Trump, 42 percent to 41 percent, with 18 percent of voters still undecided.

Yesterday’s splashy WaPo story about Flynn’s rise through the VP ranks didn’t use that word specifically, but it sure made it sound like he’s the guy Trump is looking at most closely right now. He’s a Democrat, pro-choice, and apparently a friendly acquaintance of Vladimir Putin. He’ll fit right in. After weeks of focusing on a group of current and former elected officials in his search for a running mate, Donald Trump is increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn to project strength and know-how on...

Months later, as the GOP prepares to coronate Trump at its convention, the former House Speaker has emerged one of Trump's most high-profile supporters and even secured himself a top spot on the billionaire's vice presidential shortlist.

Griesa (S.D.N.Y., Nixon) sentenced Nash Apr. 9 to a mere two years probation for his role in a series of schemes which lead to the embezzlement of some $885,000 from the Int'l Bhd. of Teamsters' treasury and to $538,100 in illegal campaign contributions to the failed reelection campaign of expelled IBT president Ron Carey.

    Saying he "is putting the country ahead of partisanship," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich announced his availability as a vice-presidential running mate "for either candidate." Speculation about such a possibility heated up this week when Gingrich called Hillary Clinton's speech after she clinched enough delegates for the Democratic presidential nomination "spectacular." Earlier he had spoken favorably about GOP nominee Donald Trump. "Listening to Hillary the other night I realized what a strong candidate she is," Gingrich said. "She's got the experience and the gravitas that this country needs. That's not to say that Donald Trump wouldn't also be a good...

    Here we go again. Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump has done it this time. His attacks on the Mexican heritage of federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel clearly show that Trump's campaign is off the rails. The proof is that even prominent Republican leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan and former Speaker Newt Gingrich have disavowed themselves from Trump's attacks on the judge. Surely, this is the beginning of the Trump campaign's self-destruction! Not so fast my friends. Let me rewrite the opening paragraph to represent the true Trump strategy here, one I don't endorse but still recognize for what it is:...

    Newt Gingrich’s prospects of joining the Republican presidential ticket as Donald Trump’s running mate are expected to get a boost from mega donor Sheldon Adelson, say three conservatives with links to Gingrich or the casino billionaire. Adelson has pledged $100m to back Trump’s White House bid – and the sources familiar with Adelson and Gingrich said they think close ties between the two men who share ardent and hawkish pro-Israel views, should help the former House speaker’s chances. Adelson has long been close to Gingrich, who had a hand in convincing him to back Trump last month, and the Las...

    I was stunned over the weekend when Newt Gingrich went hard after Donald Trump for the real estate mogul's comments about the ethnicity of a judge overseeing a case involving Trump University. *snip* Given that back and forth, I reached out to Gingrich to see what he made of the hubbub — and whether it had changed his generally positive views on Trump. It has not. Here's what Newt told me: Trump is going to be fine as a candidate. He is learning very rapidly. When [Ted] Cruz dropped out so early it took away the 60 days Trump and...
