WHOA. Newt Gingrich Brings Up DNC Staffer Seth Rich’s Murder To National Media (VIDEO)

Mr. Gingrich is among the most astute survivors of smashmouth D.C. politics and one well versed in the Clinton-era of scandal that literally had bodies mysteriously piling up at a troubling rate.

Last summer DNC staffer Seth Rich was found shot to death on a D.C. sidewalk. Since that still unsolved murder, it is believed Mr. Rich may have been the primary source of the DNC leaks that plagued Hillary Clinton’s presidential election. Those leaks showed clear collusion between the DNC, the Clinton campaign, and the media. The DNC has said very little regarding the murder of one of their own. The national media has followed a similar silence. Now, months later, the murder is receiving new attention – and deservedly so.

The Mainstream Media’s response to Mr. Gingrich’s pointing out what is a bizarre murder made more so by the media’s unwillingness to investigate it, is to call the former Speaker of the House a “conspiracy theorist.”

Perhaps it would be far more accurate to call this same media “murder deniers” in regards to the Seth Rich case. If he was in fact the source of the DNC leaks, that truth would destroy the oft-repeated “Trump/Russia collusion” conspiracy theory the media is so actively involved in. It also means that Mr. Rich was likely killed for having done harm to the Clinton campaign and the very powerful forces who were supporting it.

Was the Clinton Machine willing to kill to win in 2016? Now THAT is a story worth investigating.

Trump VP Alert: Fox Suspends Gingrich Contract – “Effective Immediately”

Has the Trump VP pick been leaked, or mere coincidence?

Check out this tweet from CNN’s Brian Stelter:

“Fox News Channel has mutually agreed to suspend its contributor agreement” with Newt Gingrich “effective immediately.” Story TK.

(REMINDER: It was D.C. Whispers that reported months earlier about a Trump-Gingrich alliance. That report indicated Gingrich was being considered for a White House Chief of Staff position, which is still a possibility.)

BOOM! Trump Raises $50+ MILLION In June Alone!!!!

Will the astonishing amount be enough to silence the recent critics who declared just last month Donald Trump was not raising the kind of cash needed to defeat Hillary Clinton?

While those complaints were being leveled, Trump was raising a lot of cash for his campaign and the GOP. LOTS AND LOTS of cash…

Via the now egg-on-their-face, Washington Post:

“Donald Trump raised more than $26 million for his campaign and another $25 million in conjunction with the Republican National Committee in June, a hefty haul that his campaign hopes will put to rest anxieties in the party about his fundraising prowess.”

Word is, Trump’s July haul is already on a pace to eclipse the June mark.

It appears raising money won’t be a problem – just as Mr. Trump promised.

And in related campaign news, Team Trump is said to be huddling more often with possible Vice Presidential pick, Newt Gingrich in recent days. D.C. Whispers was the first to report of a Trump-Gingrich alliance several months ago, and since that time, those initial reports have been repeatedly substantiated. 

Today, Trump is scheduled to appear onstage with Gingrich at a campaign rally in Ohio. The Trump camp has been watching how potential VP candidates perform onstage with the New York billionaire, an effort based largely upon Trump’s demand that he have a running mate who matches well with his own naturally combative personality.

Gingrich is among the very few politicos who has the stage presence to not be entirely overshadowed by the larger-than-life Donald Trump. The former House Speaker would also provide the kind of tactical D.C. abilities some suggest is sorely needed within the still largely “outsider” Trump campaign. 

Word is that Gingrich has indicated he is very interested in the job of Vice President, but has already outlined some demands should he be chosen as Mr. Trump’s running mate. These demands center on his desire to be granted significant discretion in helping to run day-to-day workings of a Trump administration, namely being the primary link between the White House and Congress so that a Trump agenda has the best chance of actually being implemented.

In essence, Trump would provide the big picture outline, and it would be Gingrich who would then implement the details, a legislative operation very similar to what was incorporated during the Reagan-era.

Trump Insiders Increasingly Frustrated Over Billionaire’s Repeated Blunders This Past Week

Donald Trump had a bad week.

That’s not the word coming from the often anti-Trump Mainstream Media or Establishment politicians, but rather from the men and women working within the Trump campaign, including, it is said, Trump campaign supervisor and longtime politico, Paul Manafort, the man largely credited with ensuring Trump secured the GOP nomination.

“He needs to start listening. The campaign is a team sport now.”

Those were the words of Trump adviser, Newt Gingrich spoken to Fox News’s Chris Wallace this past Sunday. It is a sentiment said to be widespread throughout Team Trump of late as the presumptive GOP nominee finds himself taking incoming from the Clinton campaign, the media, and still some within his own Republican Party.

Mr. Trump’s performance was so uneven this past week it required a somewhat testy one-on-one between Trump and Paul Manafort. Whispers indicate Manafort was unnerved over what should have been the campaign’s primary focus following the rioting by American flag-burning protesters in San Jose following a Trump rally. Instead, the news cycle jumped upon Trump’s belief that the judge overseeing his Trump University civil lawsuit should step down from the case because, “He’s Mexican.”

The judge was born in Indiana to Mexican-immigrant parents.

It was a verbal misstep that has since become the focus of media attention, a focus the Mr. Manafort is said to be increasingly frustrated by. Newt Gingrich described Trump’s “He’s a Mexican” statement  as, “utterly innapropriate” and a “terrible mistake.”

It should be noted that since his meeting with Manafort, Trump has gone silent for nearly twenty-four hours, an uncommon occurrence for the normally verbose GOP front-runner.

Remember When D.C. Whispers Reported On The Trump-Gingrich Alliance First?

Several months ago, D.C. Whispers shared the below-the-political-surface whispers of an alliance being formed between then-insurgent GOP candidate, Donald Trump, and former House Speaker and presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich.

While some readers were enthused by the news, others responded with derision and claimed this blog to be guilty of baseless speculation.

Those responses have since gone silent as the Trump-Gingrich alliance is now being discussed openly via various media outlets.

“The former Speaker of the House and 2012 presidential candidate was the last to lead a Congress that was willing to send to the president’s desk a balanced budget, and Trump appears increasingly interested in utilizing Gingrich’s considerable talent and know-how to keep his White House on task and on time in delivering the kind of change Mr. Trump’s millions of supporters are hoping for in 2017.”
