From the December 5 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier:

NEWT GINGRICH: This is a level of corruption and dishonesty beyond anything I would have expected a year ago. You take everything that happened with Hillary Clinton, the fact that they deliberately interviewed her without putting her under oath, and you take everything she did, and it's General Flynn, who served his country in uniform for 35 years, who is guilty.

He's guilty of what? Apparently of not being totally accurate in describing an interview which probably the Russian -- the FBI actually had a tape of -- talk about a setup.

I think that Michael Ledeen wrote an article today that was exactly right. Flynn was faced with bankruptcy, he was faced with a threat legally to his son, he cut a deal to get it over with.

I think it is a sad day for America when the Federal Bureau of Investigation allows itself to be this corrupt. I cannot imagine that any American believes that if the same standard had been applied to Hillary Clinton, that she wouldn't have been found guilty, over and over and over. But it wasn't the same standard, and we now know why. You have members of the FBI who are actively anti-Trump, actively pro-Hillary.
