Sessions announces Hezbollah financing, narcoterror team after bombshell report
Fox News ^ | Jan 11 2018 | Samuel Chamberlain

The Department of Justice announced Thursday that it is creating a task force to take a fresh look at drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations linked to Hezbollah after an investigative report last month claimed that the Obama administration turned a blind eye to such activities to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

The task force, dubbed the Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT), will begin its work by reviewing investigations stemming from Project Cassandra, a campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) targeting the Lebanese terror group’s actions.

According to a Politico report published last month, officials with the Obama Justice and Treasury Departments repeatedly delayed or rejected requests by Project Cassandra leaders to pursue significant investigations, prosecutors or sanctions.

They’ll probably discover that they and Hezbollah will need more money ...

The sheer number of problems that must be dealt with is astounding.

None of this stuff would have happened if Yeb! Was “sitting behind the desk making big decisions.”

This was way higher than Rhodes. The kenyan and ValJar provided top cover for Iranian backed terrorists. And half the country could care less. Scary.

I’m going go out on a limb and speculate Bruce Ohr is not on the taskforce.

Will the MSM be praising Sessions for his courage and forthrightness? Maybe in history books 100 years from now. Let the mud-slinging begin.

Way to go Sessions , you dork, nice to telegraph any would be defendant that we are on our way. This is all a P. R. drill and has nothing to do with it’s stated purpose and will result in zero arrests or results of any kind.

The more he speaks the dumber he sounds. There are literally thousands of things DOJ needs to be doing and what was last weeks headline.

We are returning to the bankrupt war on pot program. Stopping while I duct tape my head.

The Politico report outraged multiple Republican lawmakers,

Any names? Geeze Fox, while this may not be fake news, it sure is. Crappy reporting!

Sessions must have done this between naps. Hope it gets done before he nods off again.
