Jack Kingston is a former Congressman from Georgia. He gave up his House seat in 2014 to run for the Senate and lost. Not even Georgia would elect him. Now, he has a lift as a CNN commentator. His tweet this morning was about doing away with the Mueller “witch hunt.”
According to reporting by NPR, even before Trump had been inaugurated, Kingston was in Russia briefing American businesspeople about what they might expect from the incoming administration “Trump can look at sanctions.” Kingston told NPR in Moscow. “They’ve been in place long enough.”
Kingston described his role in the Trump campaign as “an active soldier in the foxhole…” Kingston was in Moscow at the same time as another Trump operative, Carter Page. (NPR. Lucian Kim “Trump‘s Men in Moscow” 12/14/16).
