Now that the Mueller Investigation is over and has shown there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Trump is calling for an investigation of the other side to discover the origins of the Russia narrative.

Trump team turns tables after Mueller report, calls for investigation into probe’s origin
President Trump and his legal team declared total victory Sunday following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s key findings — including no evidence of collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign — but sought to turn the tables by renewing calls to investigate the investigators.
Trump himself slammed the probe as an “illegal takedown,” as he called Mueller’s report a “complete exoneration” and said it was a “shame” his presidency had to deal with the investigation for two years.
“Hopefully somebody is going to look at the other side,” Trump said. “This was an illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.”
In case it wasn’t clear what he meant, Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News an investigation should be launched into how the investigation began.
“He was being investigated for a crime that never happened,” Giuliani said. “There was never any collusion.”

The American people deserve to know who was behind this, particularly if former President Obama was involved.

IS IT TIME TO REMEMBER THE ROLE PRESIDENT OBAMA PLAYED IN ALLOWING RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE?
Many in Washington predicted that Mueller would issue a final set of indictments at the conclusion of his investigation, but they were wrong. Among the loudest voices were former Obama administration officials, such as former CIA Director John Brennan who went on CNN two weeks before Mueller delivered his report and predicted there would be more indictments to come and even speculated on the date the report would be delivered.
The irony is that while Mueller didn’t issue any more literal indictments, his conclusions summarized by Barr serve as the most damning indictment stemming from the special counsel’s work. But it’s not an indictment of Trump or his team — it’s an indictment of the Obama administration.
Mueller concluded that Russia had in fact conducted a concerted effort to influence the 2016 presidential election, though there is no evidence that they were successful. Barr’s letter described two distinct efforts to influence the election…
These efforts by the Russian government took place during the 2016 election while the Obama administration was in office. We know from public statements issued by a number of former Obama administration officials that they were aware of the Russian efforts and did little to nothing to stop them.
People deserve to know the truth.
