The Newsmax headline screams: Sen. Graham Rejects Trump's Call for Obama to Testify.
But why? It's because Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham carried water for Obama’s pro-Jihadist intervention in Syria. And that's why Obama targeted Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, as I explained in this column: The Dirty Wars Behind Obamagate.
In Egypt, right in front of our eyes, Obama facilitated a Muslim Brotherhood takeover, which was stopped dead in its tracks by a true people’s revolution that brought the military to power.
McCain and Graham were assigned the roles of providing Republican cover for Obama’s policy in Syria. They performed the same function in regard to his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
Obama’s wars were never authorized by Congress.
In a Thursday Tweet, Trump said, “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.”
Yes, but Obama targeted Flynn because Flynn opposed the pro-Jihad policy of Obama, McCain, and Graham.
Here's the pathetic response to Trump's Tweet from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina):
“The Judiciary Committee will begin holding multiple, in-depth congressional hearings regarding all things related to Crossfire Hurricane starting in early June.
“Our first phase will deal with the government’s decision to dismiss the Flynn case as well as an in-depth analysis of the unmasking requests made by Obama Administration officials against General Flynn. We must determine if these requests were legitimate.
“Our next area of inquiry, later this summer, will be oversight building upon the Horowitz report about FISA abuses against Carter Page. My goal is to find out why and how the system got so off the rails.
“Finally, we will look at whether Robert Mueller should have ever been appointed as Special Counsel. Was there legitimate reason to conclude the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians?”
On Presidents Testifying Before Congress:
“As previously stated, there will be oversight of all things related to Crossfire Hurricane.
“I am greatly concerned about the precedent that would be set by calling a former president for oversight. No president is above the law. However, the presidency has executive privilege claims against other branches of government.
“To say we are living in unusual times is an understatement.
“We have the sitting president (Trump) accusing the former president (Obama) of being part of a treasonous conspiracy to undermine his presidency. We have the former president suggesting the current president is destroying the rule of law by dismissing the General Flynn case.
“All of this is occurring during a major pandemic.
“As to the Judiciary Committee, both presidents are welcome to come before the committee and share their concerns about each other. If nothing else it would make for great television. However, I have great doubts about whether it would be wise for the country.”
Graham does not want his own complicity in Obama's policy highlighted. That's his motivation.
