Gingrich warns Republicans about overreaching

in Uncategorized by

Newt Gingrich told NPR his GOP colleagues should worry “about the risk of appearing to be too eager as they dig into the scandals now dogging the Obama administration.”

“I think we overreached in ’98,” said Gingrich, “how’s that for a quote you can use?”

He added: “They need to be calm and factual. For example, a [House] subcommittee … should invite every single tea party, conservative, patriot group that was messed over by the IRS — every single one of them — to come in and testify, so that they build this deadening record of how many different people were having their rights abused by this administration.”
