Trump's strategy: Go after Obama. By ... putting Lindsey Graham in his Burn Book? LOL.
Last Thursday, Trump tweeted at Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham, saying that Graham needed to call Obama to testify at hearings on Michael Flynn's unmasking and the origin of the Russia probe. Graham rejected the request. "Trump thinks Lindsey isn't doing anything on Flynn," a former White House official said. According to the former official, Trump recently asked prominent allies to tweet negative things about Graham, and he has been complaining that Graham is a hanger-on. "Trump has said, 'Since [John] McCain died, Lindsey follows me around and shows up to play golf and I don't even invite him,'" according to the source briefed on the conversation.
