In an interview with radio host Eric Metaxas on Monday, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said billionaire left-wing financier George Soros “actively works every day to undermine the American system.”
Asked about the awkward exchange on Fox News last Wednesday when co-host Melissa Francis and contributor Marie Harf shut Gingrich down after he raised the issue of Soros funding left-wing district attorneys in local elections, Gingrich assured listeners that “there is no Fox pressure against mentioning George Soros.”
“I know that it looked very strange on television. I think part of it was because we were all remote so we weren’t on the couch, which is the normal pattern… Look, one of the members — Marie Harf — was actually John Kerry’s press person so her visceral reaction made perfect sense,” he added. “If you are a left-wing Democrat, you know that if the country learns how much George Soros is doing to undermine and destroy America that is a huge and indefensible position.
“I think people need to realize that this is a billionaire who actively works every day to undermine the American system and who has spent millions of dollars electing district attorneys who are anti-police and pro-criminal,” Gingrich concluded.
