NAGOYA, Japan Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who led the last impeachment of a president, said President Trump can help himself by taming his frustration over the Democrats partisan inquiry and staying focused on highlighting his economic achievements for middle-class voters.
Mr. Gingrich points to the example of former President Bill Clinton, the man he helped impeach in 1998, as someone who successfully navigated that difficult path.
Go back and look at Clinton he compartmentalized, Mr. Gingrich said in an exclusive interview. Clinton was very disciplined about saying, Im working on the American peoples problems, and Im not going to talk about that [impeachment].
Mr. Gingrich, who has offered advice to Mr. Trump since House Democrats announced the formal impeachment inquiry, said the president just needs to realize he doesnt necessarily help his case when he stays on this topic.
My advice would be to relax understand, youre going to lose [in the House], Mr. Gingrich said. I dont worry at all about Trump getting convicted [in the Republican-majority Senate].
Mr. Trump spent much of the weekend tweeting his criticism of what he calls the latest Democratic witch hunt the impeachment inquiry focusing on his efforts to persuade Ukraines president to investigate Democratic presidential front-runner Joseph R. Biden. He also engaged in a feud with Sen. Mitt Romney, Utah Republican, who has criticized the presidents actions.
Not only are the Do Nothing Democrats interfering in the 2020 Election, but they are continuing to interfere in the 2016 Election. They must be stopped! the president tweeted.
The former speaker sat down with The Washington Times to discuss impeachment during a leadership summit in Japan sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation, at which he delivered a keynote address. Mr. Gingrich said the president is understandably resentful...

Great advice, Newt. Say, maybe President Trump ought to take another page out of Bubba’s playbook and go out and start wars all around the world as a distraction.
Does anyone wonder why Newt is not in this administration? Hed push have Trump sitting on the sofa with Nancy
Heck, Newt is reason number 142 why Trump is president
1. Newt still desperate for relevance.
2. Newt still pretending this is politics as usual.
3. Shut up, Newt.
You tell 'em I'm coming... and Hell's coming with me, you hear?! Hell's coming with me ... ---Tombstone film.
Yes. My bad.
What Newt is saying here is that playing to his base is only going to get Trump so far. His re-election hinges on broadening his appeal to include moderate suburban voters who may not buy into his theatrics.
Paraphrase of old saying:
God must have loved the quisling, cowardly RINOs cause he made so many of 'em.
Trump can best fight impeachment by not letting it consume him emotionally. By continuing to get the facts out. By tweeting the issues. By going to bat for conservatives who have been fired for their beliefs or had their kids stolen from them. By letting the voters know how he can, with their help, make America great again.
How dare Gingrich make this comparison. Clinton was guilty. He lied under oath, which is why he was impeached. Trump is not. There is NO parallel.
Anyone that compares Trump to Clinton is a complete and clueless ass.
Newt is speaking from his “safe space”.
This is _our_ fight—time for Newt to pick sides.
Well said, I agree.
Trump needs to pack an Uzi
Clintbilly was also GUILTY, unlike Trump.
Newt’s greatest fan is Newt. He fails to realize that what happened while he was king or rather speaker is not relevant to today. We have animosity at a level never seen before in this nation. The immigration challenges did not have an Islamic component. We did not have states and cities seceding from the rule of law while they continue to suckle at the teats of the federal government.
Newt, enjoy your retirement and stop embarrassing yourself.
All I think Newt is doing is putting more bait in the Rat trap.!
Yeah tell them its upsetting Trump, sleepless nights, maybe even walking around talking to presidential portraits !
Keep the Rats doing what they’re doing!
Again there’s no official impeachment inquiry !
If there was GOP members could call witnesses & cross-examine. The Rats don’t want that. The don’t want it to come to a vote. They just want to do this kabuki because its all one-sided and it keep the nut-house part of their base energized.
I am sure Trump is all fine with ti!
Newt lost, ignore him Mr. President.
