Trump called on Obama to testify about the “biggest political crime”

U.S. President Donald Trump, on his Twitter, requested the U.S. Senate to hold former U.S. President Barack Obama accountable.

Trump wrote that if he was a senator or congressman, he would first call his predecessor to testify. “The first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in US history is certainly former President Obama. He knew everything, ” said the American leader.

Trump's statement is related to the appearance of data from the FBI internal correspondence, from which, according to Trump, it followed that the agents deliberately tried to bring his former national security adviser Michael Flynn to false evidence. There is also evidence of spying on representatives of the Obama administration, including former Vice President Joe Biden, for members of the Trump team.

“The FBI exists to investigate the crime, but in the case of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, it looks like they could exist to commit it,” White House spokeswoman Kaylee Mackenani said at a briefing.

Earlier in May, they closed a criminal case against Flynn about his possible secret connections with Russia. It is noted that the case brought in the framework of the “investigation into a conspiracy with Russia” by special prosecutor Robert Muller was decided to be terminated after thorough verification of the facts.

Flynn at first pleaded guilty and was ready to cooperate with the investigation, but then changed his testimony and refused to plead guilty.

Retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor to the U.S. President from January 20 to February 13, 2017. He resigned in connection with charges of concealing the content of his conversations with Sergei Kislyak, who at that time worked as Russia's ambassador to the United States.
