Continuing his crusade on the judicial system, GOP presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich said Sunday morning that he wouldn’t mind arresting any judge who he disagreed with.
When asked by CBS’ Face The Nation host Bob Schieffer him if he would “send capital police down” to make any arrest, Gingrich specified further his comments from Saturday.
“Sure, if you had to,” he said. “Or you’d instruct the Justice Department to send a U.S. Marshal.”
Gingrich called the judicial branch of the U.S. government “the weakest branch of the three.”

Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks
As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.
Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.
With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.
Fox News judge explains why he would “certainly” vote to impeach President Trump
Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano declared Wednesday that he would "certainly" vote to impeach President Donald Trump if he was a member of Congress.
During an appearance on "America's Newsroom," Napolitano asserted his belief that "the Democrats have credibly argued that [Trump] committed impeachable offenses" in the Ukraine scandal.
"The easiest one — because this existed in Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton — is obstruction of Congress," he said. "So — by directing his subordinates to refuse to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas, whether it's for testimony or for documents — that's an impeachable offense."
‘Yes’: Sen. Chris Murphy confirms at least five GOP senators would consider impeachment
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) confirmed that at least some of his Republican colleagues are considering the impeachment case against President Donald Trump.
The Connecticut Democrat told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he's personally spoken with GOP senators who would consider voting to impeach the president, if the House sends approves articles of impeachment requested Thursday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Quick final question, different topic," said co-host Willie Geist. "Have you spoken to a single Republican colleague in the Senate who's even considering voting for impeachment?"
