President Trump: 'Surprised' AG Barr won't look into Obamagate

Graham, R-S.C., who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Monday his panel plans a vote on June 4 for a subpoena authorization for several people, including former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, a former CIA Director John Brennan, reports The Hill. And if Trump wins a second term in November, it could be 2025 before Obama returns to the White House to see his portrait displayed among every USA president from George Washington to Bush.

There is no love lost between presidents 44 and 45.

Due to the expanding nature of their investigation, the senators requested that Grenell immediately make available all "unmasking" requests made by members of the Obama administration against Trump campaign associates from January 2016 to January 2017.

But he said he aimed to stop a cycle of using the United States justice system for what he called political investigations, including of Obama and of Biden, who is Trump's rival in the upcoming presidential vote.

The tradition of previous presidents returning to the White House to meet with their successor to unveil their portraits seems to span back to the 1970s, and has provided some rare moments of praise and bipartisanship even for those who have issued harsh criticism of each other or ousted the other from office in sour races. "We have not seen a situation like that in history", presidential historian Michael Beschloss told the outlet.

Mr Trump has often blamed the Obama administration for passing on "broken tests" for the new coronavirus - although Mr Obama left office years before the virus came into existence. "We may have our differences politically, but the presidency transcends those differences", when he unveiled George W. Bush's portrait in 2012.

She added that when she was first lady, she took "great solace from numerous portraits of the former first ladies, because it is a very hard role". Do not lower yourself and debase yourself and go to that White House. "I think for them, maybe they're not going to", Trump told reporters.

"What we're fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided and seeing others as an enemy - that has become a stronger impulse in American life", Obama said in the recording. Obama characterized Trump's response to the crisis as an "absolute chaotic disaster".

People know me. The good news is the bad news.

Trump responded by assailing Obama and accusing him of an unspecified crime, repeatedly tweeting the phrase "Obamagate".

Trump and Obama have had to endure a frosty relationship.

The FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign, and how involved the Obama administration was in the probe, has received fresh scrutiny in the wake of the DOJ dropping its charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

But it was also, I thought, interesting this weekend we saw a story in The Washington Post that said the Biden campaign is working very hard to basically turn the other cheek.

"This pandemic as fully, finally, torn back the curtain on the idea that so numerous folks in charge know what they're doing. It's just a whole big disgrace and this country has better things to do". Because that's how nothing changes.
