Following the reaction to the Derek Chauvin verdict, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called out the Biden Administration, saying on Sunday it is “the most anti-American presidency in our country’s history.”

Former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin’s guilty murder conviction comes almost a year since the death of George Floyd shocked the nation. Yet the responses from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris left Gingrich wanting more. He appeared on the Cats Roundtable radio show to say that he is “appalled at the kind of hostility that we are getting” from Biden and Harris.

“[They] had an opportunity to come out and say, ‘look, the system works, here’s a policeman who’s now been convicted on all three counts. We can feel good about how America deals with these kinds of issues,’” Gingrich said. “Instead they came out and went on a rant about institutional racism. They could not have done a better job of tearing down America if they were Chinese communist propagandists.”

The former House Speaker pointed out that the two received great opportunities to make things better for the country. For instance, Biden served two terms as Vice President to the country’s first Black president. Harris, hailing from a mixed African and Asian background, also served in some of the country’s highest offices.

“Instead of them celebrating the fact that this is proof that America is working…. they are both propagandists for this institutional racist lie…. and tearing down the country,” Gingrich said.

The former FBI official involved in the investigation into the made up Trump-Russia collusion has been charged with…wait for it…Russia collusion. Former FBI official Charles McGonigal was charged with “violating sanctions and collaborating with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.”

The Department of Justice made the announcement Monday. “Charles McGonigal, a former high-level FBI official, and Sergey Shestakov, a Court interpreter, violated U.S. sanctions by agreeing to provide services to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams wrote in the released statement.

“Russian oligarchs like Oleg Deripaska perform global malign influence on behalf of the Kremlin and are associated with acts of bribery, extortion, and violence,” FBI Assistant Director in Charge Michael Driscoll noted in a statement.  “There are no exceptions for anyone, including a former FBI official like Mr. McGonigal.”

According to federal prosecutors, McGonigal received “concealed payments” from a Russian intelligence officer in exchange for his help in having sanctions targeting Deripaska lifted. “McGonigal is being charged by the Federal District in Manhattan with additional counts relating to money laundering and conspiracy” reports National Review.

Both McGonigal and Shestakov had “previously worked with Deripaska to attempt to have his sanctions removed, and, as public servants, they should have known better,” Williams’ statement added.

McGonigal’s legal team announced their plans to enter a plea of not guilty before a federal court appearance. Seth DuCharme, head of McGonigal’s legal team old the New York Times “Charlie served the United States capably, effectively, for decades.”

“We have closely reviewed the accusations made by the government and we look forward to receiving discovery so we can get a view on what the evidence is upon which the government intends to rely” DuCharme added.

McGonigal was arrested at JFK Airport in New York City on Saturday upon returning from recent travels to Sri Lanka.
