Trump Says House Judiciary Committee Should Investigate Obama’s Book, Netflix Deals
In a tweet pointing out the absurdity of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation and its results, Trump tweeted, “House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent – ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION. So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that ‘Trump’ has done over his lifetime. 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 Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!”

The president’s tweets came in the wake of reports about potential improprieties involving Air Force crews lodging at a Trump Organization-owned property in Scotland.
What those reports quickly glossed over is that their visits comprise only 6 percent of Air Force stays in the area since 2015 — when Obama’s administration, not Trump’s, signed a deal with an airport 20 minutes from the Trump property.

The president’s tweets Monday didn’t appear to distinguish between the apparently legitimate Obama book and video deals and the far-more-questionable other topics he raised with the Democrats in Congress and the “Congressional Slush Fund.”
There’s nothing wrong with a former president writing a memoir or producing television programs.
There’s also nothing wrong with a president having been a successful businessman — so successful, in fact, that the ubiquity of his businesses means occasional situations like the Scotland Turnberry tempest in a teapot.
Clearly, the president is fed up with endless, pointless investigations.
He’s lashing out about them through Twitter, but voters are going to lash out at the ballot box in 2020.
