Rich Welsh| Saturday, on Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, explained his reluctance to call former President Barack Obama to testify in front of his committee even after calls from President Donald Trump that it should happen.
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!

Graham said calling Obama to testify would be unprecedented and unwelcome if his House counterparts Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) chairmen of the House Judiciary, and Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairmen Intelligence Committees went and did the same thing with Trump.
HELLO! What does Graham think Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler have been doing since the day they got the power? What makes the phony Graham think they wouldn’t call former President Trump to testify? They’ve literally run him through four bogus investigations into Russian collusion that they all knew from the very start was a hoax. They impeached Trump with zero evidence of wrongdoing. What more does Graham need?
“I’m a little reluctant to do that,” Graham replied. “Number one — President Obama, you’re welcome to come to the Judiciary Committee and tell us why you think the General [Michael] Flynn case should go forward, why it’s a violation of the rule of law to drop it. You’re welcome to come talk about everything you did with Crossfire Hurricane and your knowledge. But here’s what I would say: If Nadler and Schiff tried to subpoena President Trump to go to the House, the president would say, ‘No.’ All of us would be all over them.”
When will Lindsey Graham hold any of the hearings he's promised the American people he will hold against the people involved in the attempted govt coup?https://t.co/UHknpL3QR6

That’s exactly what Obama counted on. The former president abuses every privilege polite society has afforded him. We need people in Congress to get to the bottom of what happened in the government coup attempt. It’s been four years and they’re still lying. The only way we’re discovering what they did is through the long and drawn out legal process. People have waited long enough. Graham should put Obama on the stand, make him take the oath, and question him already.
Or, maybe South Carolina voters should be a little reluctant to reelect Graham?
If anyone caused the need for calling a former president to testify, it’s Barack Hussein Obama.
Five days ago Graham called the Obama administration’s surveillance ‘stunning and unethical.’
With that said, we now have evidence that the whole setup of Lt. General Mike Flynn, and the whole Russian collusion attacks on the Trump campaign and candidate, then President Donald Trump, was ordered by President Barack Obama. If ever there was a case where a former president was to be called in, this is it. It doesn’t get more necessary. Read The Rest At DavidJHarrisJr.com
