As part of his ongoing obsession with former President Barack Obama, Donald Trump is now demanding that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, investigate Obama for allegedly conspiring to open a counterintelligence probe of members of his 2016 campaign for conspiring with Russia to guarantee Trump would be elected.
Here’s the Thursday morning tweet from Trump:
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!

Says the lying chickenshit who wouldn’t testify himself because he was afraid he couldn’t resist the urge to commit perjury.
President Obama did HIS job.
You have FAILED yours.
No distraction will change that.
You are a petty, envious disgrace.

▪86k Americans are dead.
▪1.5M Americans are infected.
▪36M Americans are unemployed.
We know who did that and it wasn’t Obama, Hillary, Biden, Pelosi or anyone else you have tried to blame. You are responsible. No one else.

Here’s an idea: If Obama is subpoenaed by Congress for his testimony, he should cooperate exactly as much as Trump has when the subpoenas had his name on them.
UPDATE: Graham was asked about Trump’s unhinged tweet, and he didn’t sound enthusiastic about the idea of calling Obama to testify:
Asked Graham about this tweet just now. He reiterated that he’s not going to call in Obama.
“I don’t think now’s the time for me to do that. I don’t know if that’s even possible.”
“I understand President Trump’s frustration, but be careful what you wish for.” https://t.co/B5LVPcznJR
