In the unfolding, massive Iran ransom payment scandal, we’re getting more news that the original payment amount of $400 million is MUCH larger than expected.
If you recall, the Obama administration flew unmarked pallets of foreign currency to Iran at the same time Iran released American hostages that were being held by Tehran.
Obama, of course, insists that the payments and the release of the hostages were just a huge coincidence, because otherwise he would have been breaking the law.
But now, we’re learning that it’s even worse: Obama sent Iran $1.7 BILLION.
The Obama administration disclosed to Congress on Tuesday that it transferred a total of $1.7 billion in cash to Iran around the time American hostages were released this year, about four times the amount originally disclosed to the public, sources told Circa.
The news was delivered by the State, Defense and Treasury Departments in a private briefing to lawmakers who went into the meeting thinking they were learning more detail about the $400 million in payments originally reported in the news media.
This is classic Obama. They break the law, and then sheepishly admit that they broke the law after it’s too late.
America has a long-standing policy that we don’t negotiate with terrorists and we don’t reward terrorists with ransom.
First, Obama betrayed our country by giving over 5 high-value Taliban terrorists for deserter and traitor Bowe Bergdahl, and now this. No wonder our enemies don’t fear America anymore!
Now Obama has appeased the mullahs by caving on the nuclear deal, and Iranian ships are getting dangerous close to ours:
What do you think? Is this an impeachable offense? What should be done? Let us know in the comments!
