Gingrich: Congress Should Call on Obama to Testify Under Oath


Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reacted to host Sean Hannity’s claim that despite President Barack Obama knowing about the potential for Russia interfering in the presidential election as early as August 2016, he took no action because as Hannity put it, “he didn’t want to rock the boat” for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Gingrich responded by saying there was “no question” Congress should call the former president to testify under oath about his handling of potential Russian interference. “There’s no question that Congress should call the former president in to testify under oath to explain what he was doing and why he was doing it,” Gingrich said. “There’s no question that they should build the case from the ground up. Who was doing the investigating? Who was reporting to the president? Who did it go through? What were the meetings like when they decided not to pursue it? I mean, talk about an extraordinary failure of national security.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Mark Levin to Donald Trump: ‘Don’t Stop Tweeting’


Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” in an appearance to promote his new book “Rediscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Progressivism,” conservative talk show host Mark Levin urged President Donald Trump not to stop tweeting. Even Trump’s closest allies have cautioned him on tweeting. However, Levin applauded him for it because it was a tactic in “taking on the media.” “[I] want to thank the president for something — he gets attacked for this,” Levin said. “Thank you for taking on the media. It’s a damn about time somebody did. Don’t stop tweeting. Be more careful with your tweets, but don’t stop tweeting because you’re able to go over the head of the media the way Reagan did with his speeches. He could be more careful. I don’t care. Are the media careful about what they report? No. In any event, I’m one of those — count me in the minority that says, ‘Keep at it, keep at it, keep at it.’” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Gun owners were disappointed Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take perhaps the highest-profile Second Amendment case in the country right now: Peruta v. California.

Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch share those gun owners’ disappointment, declaring the need for the nation’s highest court to require adherence to its Second Amendment precedents.
