AP: “The White House demanded on Sunday that Congress investigate whether former President Barack Obama abused his executive powers in connection with the 2016 presidential election.
President Donald Trump leveled that claim on Saturday when he accused his predecessor of tapping telephones at Trump Tower. But Trump offered no supporting evidence, a spokesman for Obama denied the claim as “simply false” and lawmakers in both parties asked for proof.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement Sunday that reports “concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling.”
“President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016,” Spicer said.”
We continue to watch news media attempt to create a relationship between Pres Trump and Putin, the same news media which continues to ignore everything going on between Obama and Putin. Remember the sanctions lifted in Iran so that Russia could do business with them? What about the invasion of Russia into Crimea after we told them we would protect them if they disarmed? Obama was on Putin’s side.
Trump has not been in the White House long enough to do these things. Obama’s actions are being ignored.
