Since Thursday, it seems that all anyone can talk about is Comey's testimony and whether it makes President Trump look suspicious or completely vindicates him.

But according to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who appeared on Fox News Sunday with host Chris Wallace, Comey's testimony actually shed more light on Comey himself — and, by extension, Special Counsel Mueller.

On Friday, Gingrich tweeted:

Wallace asked him about the tweets, and he explained:

"Look at what Comey said. Comey said ‘I deliberately leaked through an intermediary to create this counsel. And it happens to be one of his closest friends.

Then look at who Mueller’s starting to hire. These are people who frankly look to me like they are setting up to go after Trump. They’ve ... by the way, these are people who’ve been reprimanded for hiding from the defense information in two major cases.

I think this is going to be a witch hunt. I think that Comey, by his own testimony, tainted this particular process."

GOP strategist Karl Rove, who was also a part of the panel, did not weigh in on Mueller's chosen team — but he did suggest that fighting to have Mueller removed would likely be a cloud over the Trump administration for a very long time.
