Now that the Russia collusion delusion is dead and buried, focus is shifting to the other side, as calls grow to investigate the investigators involved in the Russia investigation and behind the sketchy Steele dossier.
President Trump has openly declared that it it’s high time for Obama and Hillary to be investigated for their roles in the Mueller investigation!
During a meeting in the Oval Office, where Trump formally announced his ground-breaking, amazing asylum deal with Guatemala yesterday, the president also stated,
“We want to find out what happened the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked into me. From day one they’ve looked into everything we’ve done.”
Trump then went on to refer to a famous book deal that President Obama and Michelle made during Barack’s time in office and called for all of its records to be supoenaed, along with anything records connected to Hillary,
“They could look into the book deal that President Obama made. Let’s subpoena all of his records. Let’s subpoena all of the records having to do with Hillary Clinton and all of the nonsense that went on with Clinton and her foundation and everything else.”

The Hill has more details on Trump's desire to launch an investigation into Obama and Hillary's role in the Russia investigation:
President Trump on Friday lashed out at Democrats over their ongoing investigations into his administration, suggesting there should instead be probes into former President Obama's book deal and other activities under his predecessor.
"They want to investigate, they want to go fishing and I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing," Trump said of Democrats during an Oval Office gathering to announce an agreement with Guatemala.
"It’s a disgrace," he continued. "We want to find out what happened the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked into me. From day one they’ve looked into everything we’ve done."
"They could look into the book deal that President Obama made. Let’s subpoena all of his records," Trump continued. "Let’s subpoena all of the records having to do with Hillary Clinton and all of the nonsense that went on with Clinton and her foundation and everything else."
Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama signed lucrative book deals with Penguin Random House in 2017 after they left office. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
It is not uncommon for presidents to sign book deals to write a memoir upon leaving office. Former President George W. Bush signed a deal with Crown Publishing in 2009.
In a bizarre criticism later in the media availability, Trump complained about a new air conditioning system he said was installed in the West Wing during the Obama administration.
"It was so good before they did the system," said Trump, who would not have worked in the West Wing with the old system. "Now that they did the system, it’s freezing or hot in here."
Breitbart also had the following to say:
President Donald Trump expressed his disappointment with Democrats on Friday for continuing to push the idea of impeachment proceedings, suggesting that the House could investigate former President Barack Obama instead.
“We want to find out what happened with the last Democrat president, let’s look into Obama the way that they’ve looked at me from Day One, they’ve looked into everything that we’ve done,” he said. “They could look into the book deal that President Obama made.”
The president spoke about the possible investigation with reporters at the White House after a signing agreement with Guatemala.
Obama and his wife Michelle famously signed a book deal estimatedat $65 million in 2017.
Trump appeared to use the example of the book deal to show that Republicans never took their presidential investigations as far as Democrats do in Congress.
