President Trump railed against Democrats over the party’s relentless attempts to investigate his administration, arguing there should be probes into President Obama’s book deal and the corruption of his predecessors’ administration.
Speaking in the Oval Office on Friday, Trump lashed out at Democrats as he announced an agreement with Guatemala.
“All they want to do is impede, they want to investigate, they want to go fishing,” Trump said. “There is no collusion, there is no obstruction, they have nothing. It’s a disgrace.”
“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,” the president continued.
Trump then took aim at lucrative book deals Obama and his wife Michelle Obama signed with Penguin Random House in 2017 for $60 million. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“They could look into the book deal that President made. Let’s subpoena all of his records,” he said. “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.”
“What they’re doing is a disgrace,” Trump continued. “So destructive to our country, and I think that’s why we’re going to take back the House.”
Trump’s attack came two days after special counsel Robert Mueller delivered high-profile testimony before two House committees on Capitol Hill. Mueller was visibly shaking during the hearing and appeared oblivious to key facts contained in his 448-page report of his 2-year investigation.
Following Mueller’s Trump-Russia testimony, House Democrats announced the launch of an “impeachment investigation.” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler filed a petition in federal court Friday to obtain secret grand jury material underlying Mueller’s report, insisting the committee needs the information to determine whether to pursue impeachment of Trump.
The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee is also expected to file a lawsuit next week in an attempt to enforce a subpoena against former White House counsel Donald McGahn, one of Mueller’s key witnesses.
Nearly 100 House Democrats have said they are in favor of starting the impeachment process, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi maintains the strongest case possible should be made against Trump before the impeachment process is initiated.
While the establishment media embarks on a scheme hypnotizing America into forgetting the numerous scandals of Obama’s presidency, the former president presided over some of the worst scandals of any president in recent decades, including The Russia Hoax, Hillary Clinton’s secret server, Operation Fast and Furious, IRS Abuses, Benghazi and Spying on Journalists.
