Ever since Mueller dropped the ball when he testified before the House Judiciary Wednesday and very clearly told them that his investigation turned up “insufficient evidence” to incriminate President Trump in any involvement with Russia election hacking, the pointing finger has been turning back around on those behind the Russia probe!
As calls grow to “investigate the investigators” President Trump himself is giving some advice on just who and what to look into.
One person Trump wants to see investigated is former President Barack Obama, who, just after he left the White House landed a huge book deal with Penguin Random House.
Trump wants all the records, which have not been disclosed to date, subpoenaed, along with all records “having to do with Hillary Clinton and all of the nonsense that went on with Clinton and her foundation and everything else.”
Take a look at the president’s call for action in investigating Obama that hit social media:
The Hill has more details on Trump's call to launch an investigation into Obama's book deal:
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.
The Washington Examiner also said:
President Trump took aim at Democrats over the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election and into his own campaign on Friday, suggesting to reporters that investigators should look into a book deal signed by former President Barack Obama instead.
"It’s a disgrace," Trump said in the Oval Office. "We want to find out what happened to 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," Trump added. "Let’s subpoena all of his records."
Trump's comments appeared to be in reference to lucrative book deals that Obama and his wife Michelle Obama signed in 2017 for $60 million. The former first lady's novel, Becoming, was published last year and instantly became a best-selling hit.
