On Friday, President Trump turned on Democrats about the current investigations for people from his administration, saying that there should be several cases about the book deal and other activities of former President Barak Obama.
Trump was having an Oval Office gathering where he announced a deal with Guatemala but did not forget to mention his political opponents, as he said:
“They want to investigate, they want to go fishing and I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing. It is a disgrace. We want to find out what happened the last Democrat president. Let’s look into Obama the way they have looked into me. From day one they have looked into me. From day one they have looked into everything we have done. 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.’’
Former President Barack Obama and his wife signed several book deals with Penguin Random House two years ago that, according to some people, raised controversies as the terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Trump’s comments about Obama and his wife come just two days after the testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller testified before two House committees. After that, several Democratic leaders said that they will carry on with their investigation about the possible obstruction of justice and abuse of power that was noted in the Mueller report.
While Mueller’s testimony was uneven at times, he laid out his findings of Russian interference in the 2016 election to aid Trump. Multiple Democratic lawmakers have come out in favor of launching an impeachment inquiry in the wake of his testimony, The Hill reports.
