NEWT GINGRICH: My hope is that President Trump will lead the millions of Americans who understand exactly what's going on. The Philadelphia machine is corrupt. The Atlanta machine is corrupt. The machine in Detroit is corrupt. And they're trying to steal the presidency, and we should not allow them to do that.
First of all, under federal law, we should lock up the people who are breaking the law. You stop somebody from being an observer, you just broke federal law. Do you hide and put up papers so nobody can see what you're doing? You just broke federal law. You bring in ballots that aren't real? You just broke federal law.
I am sick and tired of corrupt left-wing Democrats who believe that we are too timid and too easy to intimidate, and therefore, "Let us go out and steal it," and that's exactly -- no one should have any doubt, you are watching an effort to steal the presidency of the United States.
And this is not about Donald Trump. This is about the American people. The American people have the right in an honest election with honest legitimate ballots to pick their leader, or are we now just sheep to be dominated by the high-tech businesses, the news media, and the various political machines? And are we supposed to surrender?
So, I think this is one of the great -- this is a crisis in the American system comparable to Washington on Christmas Eve or comparable to Lincoln at Gettysburg. This is a genuine deep crisis of our survival.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): So, what is the answer, now that the law's been violated and observers been kicked out? Doesn't it render the vote illegitimate?
GINGRICH: The first answer -- the first answer is for the attorney. Look, the attorney general this afternoon issued an order that federal agents can carry guns in the pursuit of people who are breaking the law. That's a signal.
