Gingrich: 'Recount-Mania' Shows 'Collapse of Dem Party as Realistic Institution'
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein's recount efforts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
"I think the recount-mania is one more example of the collapse of the Democratic Party as a realistic institution," Gingrich said.
Gingrich said he would not be surprised if claims of Russian, or even Martian manipulation of election results would arise in the future.
"You're seeing the nutty wing of the Democratic Party begin to take over," Gingrich said, also noting the mentioning of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) as a possibility to become the next DNC chairman.
He also commented on President-elect Donald Trump meeting with a former critic of his presidential bid, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.).
Nominating Romney would be a "huge mistake," he said.
