Lindsey Graham: Senate Judiciary Committee to vote on subpoenas for Obama officials

The comments came after Trump and members of the Republican party and White House staff began pushing the idea that there was criminal activity at the highest levels behind the 2016-18 counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump's election campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Barr's actions in cases handed off by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's Russian Federation probe and "packing" senior supervisory positions with close associates "seriously undermines the US attorney's office in D.C.'s. long-standing reputation for independence from political influence", said Charles R. Work, a former office prosecutor, Republican Justice Department political appointee and president of the D.C. Bar, told the Post.

There is no love lost between presidents 44 and 45.

The break from tradition comes as Trump and Obama have recently upped their public attacks toward one another.

In recent weeks, President Donald Trump has been taking shots at his own predecessor, former President Barack Obama.

It appears Jimmy Carter, one of the five living presidents, did not attend a ceremony for his White House portrait after Reagan took office - but his White House communications director told NBC News that it likely wasn't in the former president's style and that he was focused on setting up his library after leaving office.

Author Kate Andersen Brower told CNN that the decision to not unveil the portrait charts a dark new course in U.S. politics.

She added that when she was first lady, she took "great solace from numerous portraits of the former first ladies, because it is a very hard role".

Spokespeople for both Obama and the White House declined to comment on the above report.

"It is critical that we have an election where the American people are allowed to make a decision between President Trump and vice president Biden based on a robust debate of policy issues", he told reporters. It's part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty.

People know me. The good news is the bad news.

Cotton on Tuesday said there is no doubt, based on the declassified list, that Obama and Biden were at least "well aware" of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its misconduct in Flynn's case.

Unclear is whether an official ceremony for Trump and Obama will take place sometime in the future, though it is unlikely to happen while Trump is in office.

There is no evidence of that, and Mr Trump's accusations misrepresent the facts of the case. "A lot of them aren't even pretending to be in charge".

Trump and Obama have met only once in person since Inauguration Day, at the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush in December 2018. "It's just a whole big disgrace and this country has better things to do".
