Newt Gingrich: Congress “Obligated” To Call Obama To Testify On Russia Collusion


On Tuesday morning's 'Fox & Friends,' former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that following the revelations of what President Obama knew about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, the former president will have to testify under oath about what he knew, and when he knew it. NEWT GINGRICH: In addition to writing Understanding Trump, I also write novels about terrorism. I wouldn't have the nerve to write this story as a novel, because guess is what is about to happen. The Congress is going to have to call Barack Obama in to testify under oath about when he knew about Russian meddling. Was it really last August? Who told him? Why did he do nothing? Who was in the meetings? Yes, there is a big Russia story, and it is Barack Obama, not Donald Trump… I think the Congress has an obligation to call him in. How can you be so irresponsible? The House and Senate are going to have to call Obama in… Absolutely he's got to come in an testify.

Hannity: Russia Allegations “Boomeranging Back” At Democrats


Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity said Monday night that the ongoing controversy over alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign had rebounded towards the Democrats and "opened the door for their own investigations and real trouble" for the former Obama administration. In his opening monologue, he said "the real colluders are the ones who have been claiming collusion." "The real fault for Russia's election interference now falls – guess what? – at the feet of former President Obama," Hannity added. "The real crimes were committed, in fact, by Hillary Clinton. The real obstructer of justice is the former attorney general, Loretta Lynch … And the real corrupt collusion is the relationship between the former FBI director, James Comey, and … the special counsel Robert Mueller," he continued. "If President Obama knew what Russia was doing back in August of 2016, why didn't he act?" Hannity asked. "The answer, we now know, is simple … The president didn't do any investigation because he actually thought Hillary [Clinton] was going to win. In other words, let me translate here, the only reason Russian interference and the story is a big deal, is because Donald Trump won… That's what the special counsel needs to be investigating tonight," the host went on. "Real collusion: Obama this time defending Hillary, colluding so she'd win and not rocking the boat."

CNN’s Don Lemon to Media: If Trump Doesn’t Answer Our Questions, You Have To Follow Up


CNN's Don Lemon says he is surprised that it appears White House correspondent Jim Acosta is the only one "standing up" to the Trump administration. Earlier today, Acosta repeatedly interrupted the White House press briefing to try to get the cameras turned back on. "They're the American peoples' cameras, not the White House's cameras," he said. "Someone has to take a stand and turn the cameras on and see what the ramifications are, becuase they can't kick everybody out… I can't believe that people aren't standing up." While there was no video, the full unedited audio of today's press briefing streamed live and is available for replay below:
