After President Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade about his predecessor, former President Barack Obama took to social message with a pared-down response.
In another tweet, President Trump promoted his coined term “Obamagate” and retweeted a supporter’s declaration that Obama was “the first Ex-President to ever speak against his successor.”
He got caught, OBAMAGATE! https://t.co/oV6fum0zIS

Trump Demands The GOP Get Off Their Asses And Investigate Obamagate
Earlier, Trump retweeted his accusation of “Obamagate” and demanded Senate Republicans and ‘all talk, no action’ Lindsey Graham to call on the former president to testify on Capitol Hill about “the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA” and claiming Obama “knew EVERYTHING.”
Of course, Graham would never do that since he acts like a Facebook Tough guy. Spews all the things he’s gonna do and then hopes no one remembers he said it or calls him out on it.
If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the USA, by FAR, is former President Obama. He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!

The escalating tension comes as Obama-era officials colluded with some FBI agents in trying to hamstrung the incoming Trump’s administration.
Also, the Justice Department moves to drop its case against former Trump national security adviser after it was exposed that the FBI conducted an illegal investigation into Michael Flynn.
The Trump administration on Wednesday sent lawmakers a declassified list of Obama administration officials who had asked for documents that led to Flynn’s identity being “unmasked” in intelligence reports.
National security officials can seek to reveal the identity of people who had conversations subject to government surveillance — known as “unmasking.”
Trump also lashed out at Obama on Sunday following his criticism of the Justice Department’s decision to drop the case against Flynn. In a call that was subsequently leaked, Obama warned the move to drop the Flynn case threatened the “rule of law.”
