Pavlich: Obama Officials Should Testify on Why Nothing Was Done About Russian Meddling
Katie Pavlich asked Tuesday why lawmakers are not calling for former Obama administration officials to also testify as part of their Russia investigations.
Earlier in the day, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks met with the House Intelligence Committee for a closed-door interview.
Hicks was expected to face questions over the response by President Trump to a report last summer about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in 2016.
"It's a one-sided proposition. They're constantly dragging Trump administration in front of these committees. If they're really interested in getting to the bottom of what the Russians did, it should be both sides of who was involved," she said on "Outnumbered."
Pavlich pointed out that the administration "sat by" and did nothing to prevent the Russian meddling in the election, which dated back to 2014.
She said former White House Communications Director Jen Psaki should testify, along with former top White House aide Ben Rhodes.
Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!

Pavlich dismissed Democrats' accusations of obstruction of justice against Hicks for her actions.
"I think that's a complete waste of taxpayer resources to be asking a communications director why she wrote a press release," she argued.
On Tuesday morning, Trump simply tweeted "WITCH HUNT."
