Trump Rages: Investigate Obama’s Deal With Netflix

Politico reports:

President Trump on Monday suggested the House Judiciary Committee investigate former President Obama’s post-presidency book deal and agreement with Netflix instead of pursuing various inquiries into the Trump administration.

Trump returned to the subject a couple hours later, when he appeared to equate allegations that he has profited off the presidency by declining to put his assets in a blind trust to the Obamas decision to sign a deal with Netflix a year after leaving office.

He has on multiple occasions suggested that Obama’s book deal be investigated, despite such agreements being standard for most presidents once they leave office. Monday marked the first time Trump broadened his calls for investigation to include the Obamas agreement with Netflix.
