Why have the Obamas not even been questioned about this?
President Trump advised Congress to stop investigations into his businesses and focus on investigating the Obamas’ book and Netflix deals.
“House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent – ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION. So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that ‘Trump’ has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way,” Trump said Monday morning on Twitter. “I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the ‘Congressional Slush Fund,’ and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!”

Since taking over the majority, House Democrats have started multiple investigations into Trump’s businesses and personal finances. The president has tried to thwart the inquiries by stonewalling subpoenas.
In 2017, Barack and Michelle Obama signed a joint book deal worth a reported $65 million. They also inked a deal with Netflix in 2018 to produce content for the streaming company. Last month, the Obamas’ first produced documentary, American Factory, streamed on Netflix.
Trump, 73, called for subpoenas of the book deal in July to counteract Democratic investigations into his businesses.
