Newt Gingrich—the architect of the Republican comeback in the '90s who has mostly faded from the stage—quietly advised Team Trump to "arouse the country's anger" with TV ads after the 2020 election to amplify the lie that Donald Trump won the presidential election that year.

That's according to the House Jan. 6 committee, which revealed Thursday that it has obtained emails showing how the former House speaker turned Republican operative played a role behind the scenes to instigate the disappointed MAGA crowd.

The committee has formally requested that the one-time politician meet with investigators and discuss his previously undisclosed activities, which appear to have fueled the former president's ill-advised attempt to cling to power after losing to President Joe Biden.
