Trump recommends congressional investigations into Obama family book and Netflix deals

Source: Washington Examiner

President Trump advised Congress to stop investigations into his businesses and focus on investigating the Obamas' book and Netflix deals.

"House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent - ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION. So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that 'Trump' has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way," Trump said Monday morning on Twitter. "I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the 'Congressional Slush Fund,' and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!"

Since taking over the majority, House Democrats have started multiple investigations into Trump's businesses and personal finances. The president has tried to thwart investigations by stonewalling subpoenas.

In 2017, the Barack and Michelle Obama signed a joint book deal worth a reported $65 million. They also inked a deal with Netflix in 2018 to produce content for the streaming company. Last month, the Obamas' first produced documentary American Factory streamed on Netflix.

7. Well it would depend on if a deal was made as part of a payback for political favors that a former

President did while in office.
Not of course that I think Obama did such here at all thus no investigation is warranted.
As for why Trump is saying this I think its partly because he is chumming with blood hoping to rally his base of morons and the other reason is he is lashing out due the investigations being conducted into what he has been doing.

That's what's really burning him up.

There doesn't seem to be a screw-up big enough to bring him down. Absolutely bizarre. Maybe, maybe if he wore a tan suit?

11. Obama would probably just shoot the paperwork over and tell them to let him know if

they need anything else. But he should tell them to go to hell just on principal.

12. If Donnie thinks deals made when out of office are a criminal offense, he's going to have to get off

the grifting money train when he's finally out of there. No deals for you.

17. Trump is just jealous that the Obama's have way better than him at

deal making. Do way anyone would give him an 8 figure book deal. And the only kind of entertainment he can do is reality not the substantive programming that the Obamas will produce.

Let's face it, without the title of President to prop him up he would be a total failure.

23. EVERYTHING the turd has done

by tweet, coercion, appointments, presidential signing statements

MUST BE UNDONE.

He is illegally in the white house through lying, cheating, obstruction, put their by our worst enemy, therefore EVERYTHING he has done is invalid and must be reversed.

Sounds pretty simple to me. Too complicated for our democratic establishment? Well, it is your job, figure it out. The damn republicans seem to be able to figure out how to do what they want...

Once the list of all that he is done is communicated to the American people who haven't been paying as close attention as we political junkies, they will be, justifiably OUTRAGED.

Our problem is we can't seem to, or don't have the courage to, communicate.

Everyone knows who is the current favorite on whatever bachelor/housesluts shows that are on, but DON'T know how the turd is destroying this country.

Why is that?

The turd is reversing everything Obama did, he can reap the same.

And I don't care the political fallout of taking a stand on WHAT IS RIGHT.
