President Trump has called for Former President Barack Obama to be called to testify but it seems that Senate Republicans are refusing to do so.
Senate Republicans will investigate the Obama administrationâ€™s decision to target national security adviser Michael Flynn following the 2016 presidential election, but they do not intend to subpoena former President Barack Obama or require him to testify in front of a panel, Politico reports.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told media Tuesday that his committee is prepared to investigate former Obama administration officials, particularly officials affiliated with the Department of Justice, and the FBI over their targeting of Flynn in light of Attorney General William Barrâ€™s decision to drop perjury charges against the former national security advisor. Barack Obama will likely be left off the list of those asked to testify.
â€œIâ€™m not anticipating calling President Obama,â€ Graham said, adding that it was likely the panel will question FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
President Trump doubled down on his call to have Obama testify:
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 USA, by FAR, is former President Obama. He knew EVERYTHING. Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!

Obama clearly has his fingers all over Crossfire Hurricane. Not only was his intelligence community working to undermine the incoming Trump Administration but so was his Vice President(Joe Biden) and his Chief of Staff(Denis McDonough). They both requested the unmasking of Gen. Flynn.
Does Obama need to be the first to testify?Â No. Should he be considered to testify after we hear from his subordinates? You bet.
