Drudge: ABC News Interviews Gingrich Ex, Debating Whether To Air Before Primary

14 years ago this week, a little website called The Drudge Report posted a story claiming that Newsweek had killed a story about President Clinton having an inappropriate affair with an intern.

This evening, Drudge has a similar–albeit less explosive–scoop. Drudge is reporting that ABC News’ Brian Ross has interviewed one of Newt Gingrich’s ex-wives (believed to be Marianne Gingrich) and is debating whether it should air before the South Carolina primary on Saturday. Earlier Drudge says there is a “Civil War” at the network as to when the interview should air.

Update: The AP says the interview will likely air tomorrow on “Nightline.” In addition, TPM has a letter sent by Gingrich’s daughters to ABC regarding the interview.
