NEWT GINGRICH: Well I've been recently, ever since I began speaking, I complained last week about this whole sickness of Comey and Mueller and this whole thing. I've gotten a surprising number of Republican congressmen and senators contacting me and asking me to get more involved and talking about what we should do to get back on offense.
