Trump Calls for Graham to Request Obama Testimony Amid Unmasking Scandal

President Donald Trump is ready to hold people accountable, and on Thursday he requested that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham call former President Barack Obama to testify amid new developments about the Russia investigation and efforts to “unmask” Michael Flynn’s name in intelligence reports.

“If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama,” Trump posted on his social media account Thursday. “He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!”

The post from the president comes at a time when it is obvious that there is a real need to investigate Obama and his associates, in what Trump calls “Obamagate.” Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WS) recently made the public aware of a list of Obama officials, which was declassified by Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell and sent to Grassley and Johnson, who requested to “unmask” the identity of Flynn, who at the time was Trump’s incoming national security adviser.

The recently declassified list included the names of top-ranking figures of the Obama Administration including former Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough.

Graham however, expressed his reluctance to call Obama to testify. He said he is “greatly concerned about the precedent that would be set by calling a former president for oversight.”

“No president is above the law,” Graham said. “However, the presidency has executive privilege claims against other branches of government…. As to the Judiciary Committee, both presidents are welcome to come before the committee and share their concerns about each other. If nothing else it would make for great television. However, I have great doubts about whether it would be wise for the country.”

He did however confirm that his panel will “begin holding multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane starting in early June.”

“Crossfire Hurricane” was the FBI’s internal code name for the investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign were coordinating or colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

Graham has been in charge of leading his committee’s investigation on the origins of the Russia investigation for the past several months now. A source told Fox News that Graham and his committee are considering inviting Brennan, Clapper, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to testify before them in the near future. There would be an initial invitation for them to appear, however, if they encounter any resistance at all, the former Obama staffers and allies will be sent subpoenas if needed so that they can testify before the committee.

  1. He should be called! All roads lead back to him and his third world ploy to remove the President! I have never seen such government deceit in my life! He needs to be stopped and held accountable! We need to revamp the FBI and other agencies. New FISA laws need to be passed to insure integrity. Isn’t it awful in the USA these measures need to be taken to keep our officials honest? SAD!

    1. Bad for the country to call Obama? I call that BS! Obama and his whole crew are corrupt, they need to be prosecuted and jailed! That’s what would be Good for the country!!

    2. BHO should also be questioned concerning 2014 Coronavirus research that DHS halted, 2015 Fauci funding $3.5 Million to Wuhan Virology Lab, Fauci January 2017 statement that Trump Administration would have pandemic. These dots are not to hard to connect, and show how they planned to take President Trump down, without regard to the cost of lives or money. President Trump is fighting for the USA not a New World Order.

      “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

    4. I was listening to Bongino yesterday and there was no FISA order to spy on Flynn. The only way around this is an order from the president. So yes Obama ordered the spying and needs to be questioned. I’m afraid the republicans will not do this. Our only hope is if this comes in Durham’s scope.

  2. since even a President is NOT above the law….I can understand why Senator Graham is being so cautious….call the Staff of people who were part and party to this “CROSSFIRE HURRICANE”……begin to Unpeel this operation and put the puzzle together to see just WHO SAID WHAT AND WHY AND THE PERSON WHO WAS IN CHARGE OR GAVE THE GO A-HEAD!

  3. If Graham does not call Obama And Biden to testify, his lack of action show a lack of respect for the wishes of the people. He is in fact creating a precedent by not taking action. What Obama and Biden did is not only alarming but a disgrace to the nation and seta a bad example if not they are not call before the senate to account for their actions.

  4. Lindsey Graham is all show and no go, full of promises unkept. All talk and no action! If he is not Deep State it is time for him to prove it!

  5. I agree. Brings to mind the statement by Mr. Larry Arn, President of Hillsdale College, “If men were angels we wouldn’t need the Bill of Rights and Constitution”. But men aren’t angels.

  6. Graham should have played it better. He should not have said that he would not call Obama. He should have clearly left open the possibility that anyone could be called, depending upon what other information come out, from now on

  7. I gave up on Lindsey Graham a long time ago. He makes a bold statement every once in a while to hide who he really is. A typical politician who just wants to go to the cocktail parties and bullshit about how voters are too stupid to catch on. And when we elect people like Obama he proves his case. Don’t wait for Graham to do anything because it wont happen.

  8. Both obama and biden should be investigated! There is evidence that they led this coup attempt, so why should they be above the law? The left was allowed to conduct their witch hunt at the taxpayers expense, with no evidence just their own madeup lies, and yet these two are to go unpunished for the worst crime ever committed by a standing president and vice president? If you aren’t going to take this all the way to the top, why even bother at all?

  9. The Democrats at the impeachment trial kept saying No one is above the law not even the president but low and behold Look at who is Above the Law Obama and Biden !!!

  10. Lindsey Graham said on TV that by bringing in Obama would only open another can of worms! That has me bothered! The full and complete truth of corruptions needs to be exposed and anyone involved should be held accountable! Obama and Biden I’m sure were very involved! They had to be otherwise Flynn would not have targeted! The people have the right to hear it all!

    1. bring on the worms! Lindsey Graham, either you’re with US or you’re against US. I think Lindsey is one of the worms in the can

  11. President Obama is a moron figure head he was and is not mentally capable of the level of deceit that was rampant in his cabinet, the real criminals are still around and doing well none of them have been even looked at or mentioned by the corrupt justice department which is part of the corruption in our government, the system protects it’s own .it’s silly to think that any thing will come of the attorney general’s investigations no one will be indicted or prosecuted they are just running out the clock on all of the issues and keeping the gullible public thinking that they are doing something to fix the problems when they have no intention of ever doing anything real .

  12. Lindsey Graham is not a friend of the POTUS. I believe that he’s up to his eyeballs in the “Deep South”. It’s ok for the DEMORATS to bring our President up on BOGUS CHARGES. It’s ok for them to take him to the SCOTUS over showing his tax reports. It’s ok for Barack Hussein Obama to ruin Gen. Flynn’s life over a bunch of lies that Obama went with. It’s ok for the Islamic terrorist sympathizer to give the terrorist Iranian government billions of U.S. taxpayer billions of dollars in cash so that they could give it to the terrorist organizations. Don’t forget Fast & Furious & Benghazi. I’ve had it. Lindey Graham is a big mouth that ends up doing nothing.

  13. A great deal of the political corruption in DC could be minimized if we limit terms. A president’s term is limited . . why not Representatives & Senators ??
    Washington should not be a career for anyone !!

    It’s time to change the Constitution ! God bless America.

  14. Mr President do you job and summon ALL these lefistt criminals to testify and subsequently be jailed for Treason and obstruction of justice and pure hatred of the United States, for starters, Starting with Obama…….

  15. I agree with the statements above. Obama wouldn’t even have been President if Soros and The Deep State weren’t involved. This was coming on for years and years. As I have said before and often does no one on DC have the balls to stand against the corruption which has been uncovered? Where is justice in all this BS that the American people have had rammed down their throats. What does it take to make sure that treason, money laundering, and the Democrats pay?
    Follow the money. Americans have left them still the money right out of our pockets. Stand up America and let the world know that we are not going to hand over the US on a silver platter. First three to be outed; George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, and Obama. Attorney General Barr will you us justice. The Supreme Court will you give your country and your people justice?

  16. At This Point With Atty. General Barr`s Recent Comments That Obama Nor Biden Would Not Be Prosecuted Is A Travesty Of Justice .The American People Have Seen Enough Evidence This Goes Right To The Top.
    This Was A Coup Attempt To Remove A Sitting President And If That Isn`t Bad Enough I Believe There Is Something Much More Sinister At Foot Reaching To The Highest Levels Of Our Government. Our Democracy And Freedoms Are At Stake. We Need To Call Our Senators And Congressmen And Demand Action.

  17. Get rid of Lindsey Graham, get somebody that’s not afraid to go after the truth, this is one time they should not get away with your grams I’m totally disgusted with them on

  18. Lynsey Graham, it is way past time for you to step up to the plate and do something about the greatest abuse of power this country has ever seen! If you continue to do NOTHING as usual, then you might as well kiss this country goodby because every election will be wrought with spying and corruption that will make voting superfluous. DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THESE PEOPLE, INCLUDING OBAMA, ACCOUNTABLE! The citizens of the US deserve accountability!

  19. i would love to see obama testify. the only problem would be that obama would probably lie under oath. after all, he is scum

  20. The problem is not Lindsey Graham but about 90% of congress. Another group is the main culprits and their whole conception is the distruction of this country, to achieve one world order. If the idiots out there would look at every country out there that has been a socialist country, they could see what is coming. If that is how they want to live, then they need to load up and move to one. They think we are nothing but sheep and could not survive without them, but one day the AMERICAN PEOPLE will arise.

  21. He is an EX-president and should be held accountable for all the crimes committed in the time of his “office”, in which he did nothing except filling his own pockets with the taxpayers monies. Everything ,including planned parenthood with the constant baby-murders, plus all the items shoved under that enormous big democrat rug!

  22. Hey Lindsey, grow a pair. I’m sick and tired of your hemming and hawing about these important matters. The more that you pull this crap, the weaker you look.
    I’m beginning to think you are more of a RINO than most of your fellow Senators.
    You are beginning to stink more than a diaper pail on a 120 degree day.
    It’s time to pull your head out of butt and get to doing what your constituents want from you.

  23. Who said they won;t be investigated you all forgot Durham who is investigating this whole thing. He has a grand jury and his report should be out by September.
