ABC Decides To Air Interview With Gingrich Ex On Thursday’s Nightline
ABC News decided it will run a potentially devastating interview with Newt Gingrich’s second wife Marianne Thursday night.
Excerpts from the interview with Marianne Gingrich will be released during the day Thursday, ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said, ahead of both a Republican candidate debate Thursday evening in Charleston, S.C., and ABC’s late-night news program.
ABC News has not indicated what Marianne Gingrich said in the interview. Her ex-husband has said that they don’t have a relationship.
Gingrich’s two daughters from his first marriage, Jackie Cushman and Kathy Lubbers, have issued a statement defending their father.
“Anyone who has had that experience understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets, and sometimes differing memories of events. We will not say anything negative about our father’s ex-wife,” they said. “He has said before, privately and publicly, that he regrets any pain he may have caused in the past to people he loves.”Click here for reuse options!
