For many years, former President Barack Obama and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have acted as if they are above the law.
Obama and Clinton even started the phony Russia witch hunt to take down President Donald Trump, but that just backfired in a huge way.
While speaking to reporters from the Oval Office, Trump said Clinton and Obama should be investigated for the number of shady, unethical, and potentially illegal things they have done.
Trump also said that the records regarding former Obama’s book deal should be subpoenaed, along with other records, in addition to records having to do with Clinton.
Trump then noted how former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony last week was a total failure and essentially tanked the Democrats hopes of impeaching him.
“They want to investigate, they want to go fishing and I watched Bob Mueller and they have nothing,” Trump said.
“It’s a disgrace. 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,” he added.
Trump continued: “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.”
Trump just now in the Oval Office:
– Subpoena all of Obama's records.
– Subpoena all of the records having to do with Hillary Clinton.
– Subpoena the Clinton Foundation.
– Look into the book deal that President Obama made.

According to Publisher’s Weekly, the book deal Obama and his wife, former First Lady Michelle Obama, inked in 2017 was worth $65 million.
Michelle’s memoir was released in 2018, and Obama’s book is set to be published in 2020.
Beyond that shady deal, many agree with Trump that Obama and Clinton should be investigated for their role in starting the Russia investigation.
Trump said last month that Obama “certainly must have known” that intelligence agencies were spying on his campaign.
“But you’re going to find that out. I’m not going to make that statement quite yet. But I would say that President Obama had to know about it,” Trump added.
Trump has given Attorney General William Barr the green light to declassify key documents related to the Obama administration spying on his 2016 campaign.
Trump issued a memo to Barr in May giving him the legal authority to release certain documents to the public pertaining to the surveillance of his campaign.
The memo stated:
“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” Press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
“The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”
This is bad news for Obama and Clinton.
Barr has been busy lately trying to expose the Obama/Clinton corruption.
Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to investigate how the Russia witch hunt began and whether the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016 was legal.
The president has turned the tables, and the American people will soon learn of the corrupt actions taken by Obama and Clinton to take down Trump.
