Obama must testify about Flynn persecution and prosecution
During the 2008 campaign, Obama promised to fundamentally transform our country.
This may be the one campaign promise he kept.
Since the end of President George Washington's second term, our country has prided itself in the peaceful transfer of power from one president to another, regardless of the difference in political parties. We pride ourselves that we are not a "banana republic" where the party with the military power remains in office, removes an elected president, or otherwise interferes with elections.
The Obama Gang lied and cheated to help Hillary Clinton win. They tried to destroy the Trump presidency by concocting the Russia Hoax, including the framing and persecution and prosecution of General Flynn. They tried to sabotage the transfer of power from Obama to President Trump.
The banana republics use tanks and soldiers to interfere in transfers of power. The Obama Gang used FISA warrants based on the phony Steele dossier, the framing of General Flynn, the misconduct by Comey to leak memos to get his pal Mueller appointed to persecute and prosecute Trump friends and officials, and other misconduct. When all failed, they impeached President Trump without any evidence as required by the Constitution.
The Obama Gang used the FBI; the DOJ; lawsuits; attorneys; and its in-house pet media consisting of CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, the N.Y. Times, the Washington Post, and others. In banana republics, the military always seize the radio and television stations as part of the coup to control the news. The Obama Gang did not have to do that because their pet in-house media were already part of the Gang.
The Obama Gang has not accepted the results of the 2016 election and sought to undermine the transfer of power and cripple the Trump presidency.
Senator Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has promised hearings to investigate the political corruption of the Obama Gang in the persecution and prosecution of General Flynn. The prosecution of General Flynn was an integral part of the plan to sabotage the transfer of power. The logical first witness to call is Obama since Obama, as POTUS, wanted to know everything the FBI was doing. But Graham said he will not call Obama:
I am greatly concerned about the precedent that would be set by calling a former president for oversight. No president is above the law. However, the presidency has executive privilege claims against other branches of government[.]
Obama can raise executive privilege if he believes that it applies, but this is not a bar to call him as a witness.
Obama did not show any hesitancy to use the DOJ and FBI to sabotage President Trump's presidency. The Democrats did not show any hesitancy to impeach President Trump with no evidence as required by the Constitution. Yet Senator Graham believes that Obama is owed respect and courtesy not to testify because he is a former president.
President Trump disagrees. He notified Graham that Graham should call Obama:
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. He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 14, 2020
This is the biggest political scandal in our history because an American president used the power of his office to sabotage the transfer of power to President Trump and then tried to destroy the Trump presidency. This is unprecedented.
Graham must call Obama, under oath, to have him answer for what he and his gang did.
