Newt Gingrich: Congress Will Call Obama to Testify on Russia

With the firestorm over CNN’s fake news story on the Russia controversy still raging, the independent investigation into the alleged Russian tampering in the 2016 election so far is a nothing burger.

That it’s now admittedly a witch hunt by the media also deserves to have balance in the course of the investigation.

And Newt Gingrich predicts that that could mean the FBI has enough reason also to look into how the Obama administration mishandled evidence prior to the election.

As President Trump rightly points out, Obama knew of Russia’s involvement long before the election. And that may mean Obama will be forced to testify.

Talk about nuclear politics.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Tuesday predicted former President Barack Obama will be called to testify about how his administration handled internal reports about Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election.

“The Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling,” Gingrich told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”

“How can you be told the president of the U.S. knew last August the Russians were, in fact, involved in this and not ask him and ask him under oath? I mean, how can you be so irresponsible?” Gingrich added. “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?'”
