Trump Calls For Probe Into Obamas’ 2017 Book Deal

USA Today reports:

Lashing out at probes into his 2016 campaign and Russian election interference, President Donald Trump said Friday that investigators ought to look into a book deal signed by former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama.

“Let’s look into Obama the way they’ve looked at me,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “Let’s subpoena all of his records.”

Though Trump didn’t elaborate, he appeared to be referencing reports from 2017 that the Obamas secured a $60 million advance for one book written each by Michelle and Barack Obama. The former first lady’s book, “Becoming,” was published last year and became a best seller.
