Donald Trump Demands Release Of Barack Obama Staff Text Messages

In just a few short months, Americans will head to the polls to cast their votes in midterm elections for 2022. However, thanks to one man and his ability to use rhetoric to fire up his followers, the country is still largely focused on the 2020 elections, and now he wants to turn ack the clock even more, to investigate Barack Obama (who was not running for re-election, having already served 2 terms) in 2016.

The Congressional investigation into Trump’s role in attacking the 2020 election will start having public hearings in June, but in the meantime, some of the evidence they’ve gathered, particularly including text messages voluntarily turned over by Mark Meadows, who was serving as Trump’s Chief of Staff, has been released publicly. These link various legislators to the plot, such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, who texted on January 17th — long after the violent mob was cleared out of the area and the electoral vote was confirmed — to suggest Trump should invoke martial law.

Unsurprisingly, this has prompted a burst of whataboutism from Trump, who is now demanding that text messages from Barack Obama’s staff in 2016 be released, under the guise of proving the attacks that he still claims Obama’s team carried out on his campaign.

Trump has maintained that Obama spied on his campaign, based, as CNN explains here, on the fact that the FBI did investigate the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian operatives; however there’s never been any evidence that Obama unduly influenced that investigation, much less that the 44th President of the United States “tried to overturn” an election — contrary to Trump’s open efforts to discredit the one he lost.
