Trump demands GOP call Obama to testify about ‘biggest political crime in US history’ after Flynn ‘unmasking’ report – The Sun

DONALD Trump has demanded for the GOP to call former President Barack Obama to testify about what he's dubbed the "biggest political scandal in the history of the USA."

Trump's demand came after declassified documents named Obama administration officials who requested an "unmasking" of Michael Flynn.

President Trump demanded Republican Senator of South Carolina Lindsey Graham to call for Obama to testify.

"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 tweeted Thursday.


"Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!" Trump added.

Trump's tweet follows the day after declassified documents revealed a list of Obama-era officials that requested Trump's national security adviser Flynn be "unmasked" in intelligence reports regarding calls with the Russian ambassador in 2016.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, and intelligence chiefs John Brennan and James Clapper were among those named in the declassified documents.

Trump has claimed Obama was the mastermind of an alleged plan to undermine his administration during his early days in office.

He has dubbed the alleged conspiracy "Obamagate."

Other declassified documents revealed that Obama knew about Flynn’s phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in December 2016.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the phone call in December 2017.

US Attorney General William Barr announced last week that the Department of Justice moved to drop charges against Flynn.

Obama criticized the charges being dropped, and Trump went on a Twitter about the alleged conspiracy.

Although it was announced that Flynn would be exonerated, District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is overseeing the case, said he would delay a decision that would allow third parties to argue against the DOJ's decision to exonerate him.
