Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Monday night to blast the mainstream media and big tech for manipulating this past presidential election, saying it might be the biggest scandal in American history.

“It’s really an attack on the very integrity of the American system,” Gingrich told Hannity.

He went on to say that once Joe Biden became the Democratic presidential nominee, it was obvious that the media stopped publishing stories that could have negatively impacted his campaign. At the same time, social media companies attempted to restrict the circulation of unflattering stories about the Democratic nominee.

As for the Georgia Senate runoff elections, Gingrich was confident that Republicans will get the turnout they need to win both races.

“This race clearly is winnable and I think that the Republican organization, frankly, is capable of getting more than a million people to the polls tomorrow,” he said. “The people who I’ve talked to who are in the operation are very confident that the turnout’s going to be enormous.”

“The odds are pretty good and it’s going to be an honest count,” Gingrich added.

Gingrich Refuses To Accept Biden As President

Ever since the election, Gingrich has not hidden the fact that he believes it was likely stolen from President Donald Trump. He recently penned an op-ed called “Why I will not accept Joe Biden as president,” which was published in The Washington Times. In this op-ed, he explained that he can’t accept the results of this election because of an anger he has never felt before. 

“As I thought about it, I realized my anger and fear were not narrowly focused on votes,” Gingrich wrote. “My unwillingness to relax and accept that the election was over grew out of a level of outrage and alienation unlike anything I had experienced in more than 60 years involvement in public affairs.”

He went on to complain about the fact that those on the left and the right now “live in alternative worlds.”

“You have more than 74 million voters who supported President Trump despite everything — and given the election mess, the number could easily be significantly higher. The truth is tens of millions of Americans are deeply alienated and angry,” Gingrich wrote.

“If Mr. Biden governs from the left — and he will almost certainly be forced to — that number will grow rapidly, and we will win a massive election in 2022,” he added.
