The White House has been in a state of chaos since Trump moved in on January 20. There has been so much going on that it’s hard to tell fact from fiction. Everyday has been a revelation of some kind, and the Trump administration has no one to blame but themselves.
Now, alleged bombshell recordings are held by the FBI, and these recording indicate Gingrich made promises to Russia Before the election.

When questioned on the matter, the poster replied:
Members of the Trump administration have been careless and seemingly egotistical in their handling of the Russian hacking. Trump himself has back-tracked many times, often contradicting himself and his own staff. Trump, as result of his actions, is now facing a possible obstruction of justice charge.
Officials close Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicated that the obstruction of justice investigation of the president began days after former FBI Director James Comey was fired on May 9. Trump is suspected of trying halt the investigation into former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn.
Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that, during a meeting with Trump, the president directly asked him to see his way to letting the investigation into Flynn go. The fact that the president is now under investigation has caused outrage among Republicans.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich once supported the appointment of Mueller, however, that sentiment has long soured. When Mueller was appointed, Gingrich expressed his support, saying:
‘Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down.’
On Thursday, however, Gingrich back-tracked and said:
‘The brazen redefinition of Mueller’s task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything’
He also had this to say about Mueller:
‘Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair.’
Now the plot continues to thicken. The FBI reportedly has recordings that indicate Gingrich set up multiple meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak back in 2016, ultimately supporting Putin’s efforts to take the Ukraine, as well as having promised that Obama-era sanctions against Russia would be lifted within the first weeks of Trump’s presidency.
