Gingrich: Congress Must Summon Obama To Testify On Russia

By Ann | June 28, 2017 11:01AM

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich made an eyebrow-raising prediction Tuesday that Congress will summon Barack Obama to testify about how he handled Russia’s attempted interference in the 2016 presidential election.

James Comey’s testimony will have nothing on this:

“The Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling,” Mr. Gingrich said on “Fox and Friends.” “Absolutely, he’s got to come in and testify.”

Obama has received harsh criticism from both sides of the aisle for reportedly doing nothing about Russian meddling in the election despite being told about it in August 2016. Gingrich contends that Congress needs to get to the bottom of why Obama sat on the information:

“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?” Mr. Gingrich said. “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?’”

He said lawmakers also should ask Mr. Obama, “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?’”

“There is a big Russia story, and it is Barack Obama, not Donald Trump,” Gingrich said.

Should Congress Call Obama To Testify On Russian Meddling?



President Trump certainly agrees. On Monday, he tweeted that Obama “colluded or obstructed” the Russia investigation by not saying anything about the interference.

Meanwhile, liberals are going on a witch hunt to prove that Putin handed Trump the election. It’s almost guaranteed that, had Hillary Clinton won, the Russians’ attempted interference would be buried, never to see the light of day like so many other Clinton controversies. But the truth always comes to light; and the truth is there’s no evidence at all that Russia influenced the election.

What do you think of Newt Gingrich’s prediction? Do you agree that the media is focusing on the wrong person or do you think the Russian controversy is completely overblown? Share your thoughts below!

They have been investigating the wrong person – they should be investigating Obama and the Democrats.

These people are all very adept liars.If Obama or the Clintons are called they either take the fifth or they just say that as far as they can remember they have absolutely no recollection of anything like that .Hillary has done this already numerous times and Obama is just as good of an actor.They have t have hard proof from other sources to possibly scare them into talking because these crooks will stone wall

You are asking a past president, who has shown himself to be spineless and with total absence of courage, to submit to questioning under oath? That is akin to asking Madam Rice to tell the truth about her emails.


Nancy says:

Could this possibility of being called to testify have anything to do with the fact the whole Obama family packed up and changed their ‘vacation’ location abruptly to somewhere in the South Pacific??? I’m wondering if it is a country with whom we DO NOT have an extradition treaty! Just a thought.

And since today we learned that Binney installed, set up, designed and used the illegal surveillance system to record all WH private conversations, Obama better hope there are no tapes of what he really said.
Time to end the Special Counsel conducting the Swampish Inquisition and keep ALL investigations on purely criminal acts.

The greatest gift President Trump gave to the American people is an increasingly clear vision of just how corrupt so many American governmental institutions have become, starting with the black-hearted toads of the last administration.

I knew it was bad, but reality exceeds my worst nightmares.

Today the Democrats hold no levers of power, and they can’t dispense goodies anymore. All they can do now is howl, whine, and lie, and try to mobilize the parasites burrowed into the federal bureaucracy to undercut the will of normal Americans. They do this by falsely accusing us and those who represent us of doing exactly what they did and what they intend to do once Trump is ousted. Their goal is to seize power again and permanently disenfranchise us and they are happy to take the risk of literally ripping the country apart.
The media is, of course, a willing and eager accomplice in this coordinated campaign of deception and slander. Notice how no one in the mainstream media pointed out how the Sessions perjury lie conveniently appeared simultaneously across the entire media just when the Democrats desperately needed to shift the narrative from their utter humiliation by Trump’s terrific joint address? The media hacks never mentioned it because they were part of it, the beat-boy skeletons to the David S. Pumpkins of progressivism. The left and its media’s problem, however, is that the new information reality means that they can start a controversy, but they can’t control it.
Here’s the utterly predictable pattern. Spazzy Dems freak out about some imagined atrocity by a conservative then, within a few hours, it becomes clear that the alleged offender did nothing wrong while conservatives scour the web and start showing how Democrat hacks are on record doing exactly the same thing times a zillion. That’s the key – the media can no longer guide the lie to destroy the target. The internet lets us have a say – and to grab the wheel.
Oh no, Jeff Sessions talked to a Russian then didn’t bring it up when not asked about it! Oh, we Democrats would never do that … except, thanks to us conservatives (and a President who’s willing to punch back twice as hard), here come the photos of Schumer and Ivan sharing a cup of Joe Stalin and here’s Pelosi’s partying with some Russkies after denying it and then the State Department (under Clinton and Obama) turns out to have arranged it and now Liberals want a fairness act passed to control the internet. FOR THE LOVE OF GAIA SOMEBODY SHUT DOWN THAT INTERNET MACHINE BECAUSE IT NEVER FORGETS!

Obama was the Cinderella man who was created by certain elements to become President with instructions that he was to do nothing other than what was stipulate to him by the outsiders agenda now I think Obama is about to be thrown under the bus as he is no longer useful

Let’s hope it’s a great big bus.

Does anyone seriously think the Obama Administration is going to answer for anything ? They should yes…..There are Felonies all over the place…Treason….Murder….Collusion….But nothing will come of it but talk because our government is corrupt to the core.

Just catch Barry in one lie and they have him for contempt of congress,he cant go 2 min.without telling a whopper so this should be an easy take down.Dont put him in prison just take away his pension and passport and make him live in Chitcago for the rest of his life.

I totally agree, but doubt they ever go after Obama. He should have NEVER been cleared to run for President. He’s nearly destroyed America, caused a deeper racial divide, got people stirred up AGAINST law enforcement, & destroyed our insurance, If he doesn’t pay here though, he will on Judgment Day.


Joyce says:

June 28, 2017 at 4:26 pm

I voted no, because what good will it do, the man already said he doesn’t believe in God, so he places his hand on the korn book, and takes an oath to tell the truth? Those who believe he will tell the truth are as ignorant as he is. The only fraud in the election is what Hillery tried to do, with illegal voters, and she still didn’t get it done. Surprise, surprise, surprise. There is a God, and He aided in the salvation of freedom in America. Thank you Jesus, for aiding us in electing a God fearing man, to bring us back from the brink.

Bring the crook in under oath!

Grand Slam Obama needs to testify on more than just the Russian Smokescreen he put up to divert attention away from himself and blame it all on our President Trump knowing the bought and paid for influences of the mainstream media press would cover for him and against Trump. Expelling the Russians is also a suspicious action of sneaky Obama. What did he NOT want to be found out about?


Daniel says:

June 28, 2017 at 5:07 pm

Yeah, and he can’t use executive privelage! I say if he pleads the fifth then he should go to prison along with Lynch, and the government should seize all of his assets!



marco a. says:

call dude to testify under Oath ,,,,,, nobody but nobody is above the law,,,,,,,dude got away for 8 years , is time to find out what was he doing with Putin ,,,


Hunter says:

June 28, 2017 at 5:39 pm

No one is above the law?? wrong. the clintons are. holder is, obama is , tax evader al brawley sharpton is, maxine waters is, loretta lynch is, susan rice is, etc., etc., etc.,



Mike says:

If Obama is investigated and found guilty of even some of the things I have been reading about – he’ll be heading for the “Big House” next.


James says:

June 28, 2017 at 3:52 pm

Barry will not show even if subpoenaed. Interesting thing, a definition of subpoena is : summon (someone) with a subpoena: the Queen is above the law and cannot be subpoenaed. Barry will invoke that the Queen cannot be subpoenaed. Besides, it would interfere with his vacation plans at 80K a night.


Mike says:

They just bought that mansion in D.C. and had a 10 feet high fence put around it. I suggest we lock the gates from the outside.

Thing is Congress can call him but there are no guaranties that this monkey in a suit would even tell the truth. He’d swear and oath and still lie or take the 5th. This clown is the biggest screw up next to Killary. I wouldn’t trust him with my family silver that’s for sure

i think the russians were used as a coverup for obama hillary comey murders of seth rich shawn lucas judge scalia, john hays and many more and their child traffcing child rapes

Why bother questioning Obozo, everyone knows he would lie whether under oath or not. He spent 8 years lying about everything from himself to transparency to corruption! It wouldn’t be any different now.


Barry says:

June 28, 2017 at 1:15 pm

but on 10/18/16 B.O. is on video saying no serious person would suggest that Americs’s election could be rigged, and then went on to chastise Mr. Trump and tell him to stop whining and make a better case.

Seems the only whining is from dems. who must not be serious because B.O. told us taht no serious person would question the election.

And how about the news from May 17 to June 20 more than 350 minutes on fake news of Russia/Comey and about 1 minute on tax reform


Mike says:

June 28, 2017 at 12:50 pm

“He said lawmakers also should ask Mr. Obama, “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?’”

Well Obama did tell Putin “he would have more flexibility after the election”.


Ursula says:

June 28, 2017 at 2:04 pm

And he told him at one point or another to “cut it out” which is no more than a soft slap on the hand for a major theft
