Tom Dupree, a conservative attorney who worked at the Department of Justice under the George W. Bush administration, delivered bad news for many Fox News viewers on Thursday when he shot down former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich’s attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller.
After viewing a clip of Gingrich claiming that Mueller is running a “Trump destruction project,” Dupree told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer that Gingrich was not being fair to the special counsel.
“I’m not quite sure I would agree with the Speaker on that one,” Dupree explained. “I think it is fair to judge Bob Mueller once the dust settles and we see what evidence he has gathered and the total collection of charges he brings. I think at this point it’s too early for history to judge Bob Mueller and the legitimacy of this investigation.”
Dupree also said that any Trump supporters counting on the Mueller probe to go away anytime soon were likely going to very disappointed.
“I don’t see Mueller wrapping this whole thing up before Christmas break,” he said. “It’s possible he breaks off a piece of this investigation and submits that to Congress and says, ‘This portion of my investigation is wrapped up.’ But the notion that Bob Mueller is going to disappear into thin air by Christmas, I don’t think is realistic.”
