According to the former speaker of the house, there is one person that needs to testify before the Congress….
On Tuesday during an appearance on “Fox and Friends,” Newt Gingrich said that the Congress is “obligated” to have former President Obama testify. Gingrich said:
Guess what’s about to happen: “The Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling, Gingrich said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” Who told him? Why did he do nothing? Who was in the meetings when he decided to do nothing? It’s going to turn out, yes, there’s a big Russian story. It’s Barack Obama. Not Donald Trump. And you cannot make this stuff up.”
Gingrich comments come after Washington Post article that was critical of the lack action Obama took during the election. Political reports:
Obama’s response to the Russian campaign of cyberattacks has come under increased scrutiny in recent days since the publication of a Washington Post report detailing how and when the former president became aware of the Kremlin’s efforts as well as what retaliatory steps were taken. Obama was first made aware of the Russian cyberattack campaign in August, according to the Post.
Denis McDonough, Obama’s White House chief of staff, defended his former boss’s handling of the attacks in an interview with the Post, but another, unnamed administration official said that the Obama administration had “choked” in dealing with Russia’s interference efforts.
Do you think Obama should testify?
