Newt Gingrich slams 'loser' John Podesta for refusing to accept Clinton's loss to Trump

In the wake of Hillary Clinton's decisive Election Day loss, Democrats have pointed blame at everything but Clinton. Her campaign chairman, John Podesta, recently wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post placing blame on the FBI and the "overblown" email scandal.

"Comparing the FBI's massive response to the overblown email scandal with the seemingly lackadaisical response to the very real Russian plot to subvert a national election shows that something is deeply broken at the FBI," he wrote.

In the op-ed, he also called for a 9/11-style investigation into the Russian hacking claims, in addition to the Electoral College being briefed about Russia ahead of their gathering on Monday to officially vote for president.

But Newt Gingrich — a top surrogate of President-elect Donald Trump — thinks Podesta and Democrats are simply being sore losers. He said on Fox News Friday that Podesta is "desperately" searching for excuses as to why Clinton lost.

"Podesta is desperately trying to find somebody else to say, 'It wasn't my fault that I was a stupid campaign manager, somebody else did it to us. It's beyond my control,'" Gingrich commented.

"Well, nice try," he added.

Addressing Clinton's email scandal, Gingrich argued that no one forced Clinton to use a private email server as secretary of state that had extremely poor security measures.

He went on to label Podesta the "biggest loser" in Washington D.C., right now, as Podesta continues to search for excuses why Clinton lost, while liberal billionaire donors demand answers for Clinton's loss.
