Republican former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has issued a warning to Liz Cheney and others on the Jan. 6 House Select Committee.
Gingrich warned against issuing subpoenas and criminal referrals to GOP members, noting that the committee’s members will “face a real risk of jail” when Republicans take back control of Congress.
“You have — both with Attorney General Merrick Garland and with this select committee on January 6, people who have run amok,” Gingrich said on Fox News.
“What they need to understand is on January 4 next year, you’re going to have a Republican majority in the House and a Republican majority in the Senate.
“And all these people who have been so tough, and so mean, and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every e-mail.
“I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down.”

Gingrich said the GOP would issue subpoenas for “every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email.
“Because I think it’s clear that these are people who are just running over the law, pursuing innocent people, causing them to spend thousands and thousands of legal fees for no justification.”
“It’s basically a lynch-mob and unfortunately, the Attorney General of the United States has joined that lynch-mob and is totally misusing the FBI and I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down,” Gingrich explained.
“And the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep and they’re the ones who are in fact, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kinds of laws they’re breaking.”
