Congress is on it and Barack Obama will be called upon to testify before the Senate about how his administration handled crucial reports about election interference by Russia in the 2016 presidential election.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich asserted Tuesday that, “The Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling.”
He stated that Obama’s future could be in jeopardy because of what he knew and what he chose to keep secret.
“How can you be told the president of the U.S. knew last August that Russia was, in fact, involved in this and not ask him and ask him under oath? I mean, how can you be so irresponsible?” Gingrich asked?
“The House and Senate are going to have to call Obama in and say, ‘Who told you?’ ‘When did you have the meetings?’ ‘Who advised you?’ ‘Why did you not decide to do anything?”

“And then, ‘Why did you keep quiet for six months while everybody looked at the Russians and Trump when you, in fact, had this information last August?’” Gingrich said.
Gingrich stated that the Obama administration was fully aware of the Russian attempts to launch cyberattacks in August of 2016. Obama failed to notify the American people and take necessary precautions.
Newt believes that the whole “big Russian story” will be about Obama. It will not be about President Trump. Newt also noted that the President has already been vindicated by testimony suggesting he is not under investigation for “collusion with the Russians”.
Gingrich also noted what we have been screaming here at ‘JoeForAmerica’ for months. That after months of leaks and hearings, there has not been one lick of evidence to support the conspiracy theory that Trump colluded with the Russians.
“There is a big Russian story, and it is Barack Obama, not Donald Trump,” Gingrich said.
Senior Senator Diane Feinstein said Congress should look into former FBI Director James Comey’s revelation that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the nature of his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
James Comey testified the ex-attorney general Loretta Lynch requested that he call the the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails a “matter.”
Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, noting that Lynch’s request made him feel “queasy.”
Feinstein said she would have had “a queasy feeling, too.”
“I think we need to know more about that,” Feinstein said. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the judiciary committee take a look at that.”
Loretta Lynch is facing a possibility of 5 to 10 years in prison. The Senate investigation is expected to turn into an independent investigation and if it does, Katie bar the door!
The Democrats no longer have control of the Justice Department and they really never foresaw that. As time goes by, I believe fully that justice will be served. Obama’s legacy is toast!
When Obama and the Clintons lose Diane Feinstein, it is significant. This could be a huge turning point. Feinstein is one of the most powerful leaders the Democrats have and she comes with incredible credibility. It would be priceless to see Feinstein grill Obama on Russia!
This could very well be the crack in the door that swings it wide open.
The Comey hearings told us more about the Obama Justice Department than it did about the Trump administration. Comey testified that Trump did not obstruct justice, but that Lynch did.
I may disagree with Feinstein most of the time, but she has proven over the decades to prefer honesty and integrity over partisan politics. She is also a bulldog. When she bites, she does not let go.
Dianne Feinstein loves her party and she is smart enough to know that this whole issue is damaging. I expect that she will be uninvited to any further Clinton and Obama Christmas parties!
Get ’em Feinstein!
