Gingrich : Obama Should Testify About Knowledge Of Russian Meddling

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich asserted Tuesday that former President Barack Obama will be called upon to testify before the Senate on how his administration handled crucial reports about Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“The Congress is about to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russia meddling,” Gingrich told the Fox & Friends panel.

He believes Obama’s future could be in jeopardy given what he knew and what he chose to keep secret.

“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?” he asked?

“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.

Gingrich continued: “And then, ‘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?’” Gingrich said.

Gingrich said that the Obama administration became aware of the Russian attempts to launch cyberattacks in August of 2016, yet it failed to notify the American people and take necessary precautions.

The former speaker predicted that in the end, the “big Russian story” will be about Obama, not President Trump, who has been somewhat vindicated by testimony suggesting he is not under investigation for collusion with the Russians.

President Donald Trump has made an effort to drive attention to what the Obama administration knew about Russian interference in the election and why they did not act sooner.

Trump said Monday that Obama either “colluded or obstructed” with Hillary Clinton’s campaign so that she could win the election. Trump suggested that this is why Obama did not release any details on Russian meddling.

Gingrich also noted that after months of leaks and hearings, there still has not been any evidence to support the theory that Trump colluded with the Russians.
