The Hill reports:
President Trump on Monday declined to name the crime he believes former President Obama committed, as he was pressed on a string of critical tweets he sent over the weekend accusing his predecessor of committing the biggest political crime in history.
“You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours,” Trump told Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.
When asked to name a specific crime on Monday, Trump referred to it as “Obamagate.” “Obamagate. It’s been going on for a long time. It’s been going on from before I even got elected,” Trump said.“
Reporter: “What exactly is the crime you’re accusing President Obama of?”
Trump: “You know what the crime is. The crime is obvious to everybody.”
