NEWT GINGRICH: This guys never had a jury trial, he’s never been indicted, there’s never been a chance to measure up against his accusers. I’m not defending him but I’m just saying it’s amazing to me how rapidly the lynch mob can form.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You and I are in the same position. I, listen, I don’t know.
GINGRICH: I remember still, when you were a mere child I remember Clarence Thomas walking into that Senate hearing room and talking about a “modern day lynching”, and I remember how whipped up and how excited the liberals were and how they had this wonderful witness. And I watched all of them melt as Clarence Thomas just took them to pieces.
