Newt Gingrich calls for Pelosi too be suspended as Speaker of House(audio)

On the Sean Hannity Radio show Today, Newt Gingrich called for Pelosi too be suspended as Speaker of House.

From the audio:
"She is digging herself into a position where the House has to investigate her for the act of lying to the nation on a matter of national security"

"Absolutely totally incompatible with serving as Speaker of the House have a Senior politicians behave like this, it's beneath contempt"

"She is unworthy of serving as Speaker of the House"

"Someone needs to presently draft a privilege resolution suspending her as Speaker, and calling for an investigation by a select committee of people who have served on the intelligence committee made up of equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats, she needs to be suspended from the speakership pending the report of that committee."
"what she has done is not tolerable,

Hoyer needs to be interim Speaker, or whoever the Democrats choose, she needs to literally step aside during the period in which they're looking at this."

Interesting too, that the Speaker of the UK House of Commons is likely to be forced to step down. See...
