Trump Suggests House Judiciary Investigate Obama's Questionable Deals
 
Amid countless Democrat investigations into every business deal, Donald Trump made as a citizen President Trump is urging an investigation into Obama's business deals.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Monday suggested the House Judiciary Committee investigate former President Obama's post-presidency book deal and agreement with Netflix instead of pursuing various inquiries into the Trump administration.

The president complained that the House panel "has given up on the Mueller report," which he inaccurately claimed cleared him of collusion and obstruction.

"So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that 'Trump' has done over his lifetime," the president tweeted. "But it doesn’t work that way. 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 [inspector general] Reports."

 

Trump returned to the subject a couple of hours later, when he appeared to equate allegations that he has profited off the presidency by declining to put his assets in a blind trust to the Obamas' decision to sign a deal with Netflix a year after leaving office.

This claim comes after the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals allowed a lawsuit against Trump claiming he violated the Constitution's emoluments clause to move forward.
