Donald Trump has complained from the start of his presidency that Barack Obama and anti-Trump factions in the Justice Department and US intelligence agencies misused their power to undermine him - a conspiracy theory that's not backed by evidence.
The lawyer laid out seven points regarding Obama's "failure to find precedent for Flynn dismissal", correcting the former president by correctly noting that "General Flynn was not charged with perjury" before writing, "A perjury prosecution would have been appropriate and the Rule of Law applied if the Justice Department prosecuted your former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his multiple lies under oath in an investigation of a leak on he knew he caused".
Why it matters: In the wake of the Justice Department's decision to drop charges against former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump has sent hundreds of tweets and retweets of conservative media - many of which use the phrase "Obamagate" - that allege the Russian Federation investigation was a political hit job directed by the former president.
The narrative's apparent frailty seems belied by its numerous other faded forms, such as so-called "FISAgate" and a presidential re-tweet that featured Obama-era officials behind bars for alleged "treason".
"Just do it", Trump tweeted, addressing Senator Lindsey Graham, one of his most loyal Republican allies, who chairs the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee.
"If I were a Senator or Congressman, the first person I would call to testify about the biggest political crime and scandal in the history of the U.S., by FAR, is former President Obama", Trump wrote on Twitter. He did not respond to email and phone requests for comment.
"You know, we know he doesn't like much this administration is doing". I myself did it several times a month and NSA adjudicates the request.
"I understand President Trump's frustration, but be careful what you wish for".

Besides, all passengers will have to be compulsorily screened and only asymptomatic passengers are allowed to board the train. Packed meals contained rice packet, chapati, biscuits, cookies, pickles, water bottle, buttermilk, SWR officials said.
Republican senators named Vice President Joe Biden, now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, as someone potentially involved in the "unmasking". But the president, who has tried to undo the work of former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, praised Barr for seeking to exonerate Flynn.
It's unclear whether Trump's focus on the Russian Federation investigation will benefit his reelection campaign. Trump has even called it "treason" and "the greatest political scam, hoax" over the last week.
When those time-honored principles and traditions break down, so does our electoral system and foundation of our democracy, because what separates the United States from a banana republic or a Communist regime is the peaceful transition of power. The article alleging that following a meeting in January 2017, the month Trump took office, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, having chose to remain loyal to Obama, withheld information from Trump. "It was OBAMAGATE", Trump wrote. "However, I have great doubts about whether it would be wise for the country". "And you'll be seeing what's going on over the coming weeks".
The host provided no evidence to back his claims.
"The American people deserve to know the extent to which the US -based, Democrat-led consulting company leveraged its connections within the Obama administration to try to gain access and potentially influence USA government agencies on behalf of its corrupt client, Burisma", Johnson's spokesman, Austin Altenburg, said in a statement.
Richard Grenell, the acting national intelligence director, recently declassified a document involving the controversial case of Michael Flynn, President Trump's first national security advisor.
Trump has in the past floated unsubstantiated conspiracy theories, and critics say he is putting up a smokescreen to draw attention from the health crisis happening on his watch.
