In response to the new vigor Dems seem to have to get Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh impeached (without any evidence either one has done anything to deserve it, mind you) President Trump spoke bluntly about what they should REALLY be investigating.
That is, Barack Obama’s Netflix deal.
You know, the one that produced an anti-Trump flick as one of their first projects?
President Trump also said the House Judiciary should investigate Obama’s infamous book deal and other sketchy deals Dems have made including a “Congressional Slush Fund!”
Check out the president’s tweets from earlier today instructing the House on what they should really be looking into instead of baseless pursuits into impeaching people they don’t like:
The Epoch Times had the following to say about President Trump's call:
It’s the second time in recent months that the Republican president has called for a probe into a deal the Obamas reached.
Trump wrote on Twitter that the House Judiciary Committee gave up on the report submitted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which could not establish collusion between Trump and Russia.
“So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that ‘Trump’ has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way,” Trump said, referring to the far-ranging investigation into whether the president has violated the Constitution’s emoluments clauses.
“I have a better idea,” he continued. “Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the ‘Congressional Slush Fund,’ and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!
Trump returned to the theme several hours later on Sept. 16, writing that his opposition has failed to trip him up with multiple probes and is now trying to prove he has enriched himself by being president.
The Washington Examiner via MSN has more on the context of Trump's call to investigate the "totally-not-propaganda" Obama Netflix relationship:
Since taking over the majority, House Democrats have started multiple investigations into Trump's businesses and personal finances. The president has tried to thwart investigations by stonewalling subpoenas.
In 2017, the Barack and Michelle Obama signed a joint book deal worth a reported $65 million. They also inked a deal with Netflix in 2018 to produce content for the streaming company. Last month, the Obamas' first produced documentary American Factory streamed on Netflix.
Trump, 73, called for subpoenas of the Obama's book deal in July to counteract Democratic investigations into his businesses.
