Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose “Contract with America” led to a Republican majority in Congress in 1994, the first time in 40 years Democrats lost their power, says the criminality of the Biden White House will “make Watergate look like kindergarten mischief.”
In a commentary published at Fox, cited the 1970s scandal involving a break-in at a Democratic office at the Watergate complex in Washington.
It ultimately led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation, after he was accused of being aware of the “cover-up” of the break-in. Administration officials were prosecuted and served time behind bars.
It long has been considered the biggest scandal ever to hit a presidency, but Gingrich now says that will change.
“It is clear from the Durham report and the work of House Republican hearings that the current scandals in the Biden White House – and senior bureaucracies at the Justice Department, IRS, and elsewhere – are much deeper and more cancerous than Watergate ever was,” he wrote.
“It may be hard to remember, but Watergate came about due to a weird, dumb, and fairly narrow set of criminal behaviors which mushroomed into 69 officials being indicted and 48 imprisoned.”
