Congress Ready to Investigate Bombshell Report that Obama ^ | December 21, 2017 | Cortney O'Brien

Posted on 12/21/2017 7:12:38 AM PST by Kaslin

Some lawmakers are incensed, but not wholly surprised by this week's bombshell report from Politico that the Obama administration knowingly derailed an anti-Hezbollah investigation because it would have threatened the nuclear deal with Iran. 

The Drug Enforcement Administration was so convinced that Hezbollah was amassing $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking that it started Project Cassandra in 2008, an under cover investigation, to follow the money. Yet, according to Politico's sources, the Justice and Treasury departments "delayed, hindered or rejected" requests from project members as they sought answers.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) expected such meddling from the Obama White House, but even he was surprised as to the extent of the interference.

"I've long believed that the Obama administration could not have done any more to bend over backwards to appease the Iranian regime, yet news that the Obama administration killed the investigation into a billion dollar drug ring that lined the terrorist group Hezbollah's pockets in order to save its coveted Iran deal may very well take the cake," DeSantis said.

"Hezbollah is a brutal terrorist group with American blood on its hands and it would be unconscionable for American policy to deliberately empower such a nefarious group," he said.

DeSantis's National Security subcommittee will be "particularly interested" in finding the truth, he added. Congressional investigators are currently drafting letters for several government agencies.

We've had our suspicions about Obama's Iranian nuclear deal for quite some time. A New York Times Magazine report in May 2016 revealed that the administration went to some length to spin a narrative that we were negotiating with a regime that was becomingly increasingly moderate. We now know that wasn't true and Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes was simply acting like a "storyteller."

Congress as a whole should be ashamed. But then they wouldn’t be Congress.

Hezbolloh also offered Obama and Reggie all the coke he wanted for their own use.

No way he could say no to that.

The media that helped bammy get elected is going to suppress this, and if forced to report on it, will change the facts so as to make people believe that bammy is free of guilt, instead of the traitor to this country that he is.

NSA leaks tape of Mueller and Obama phone call:

OBAMA: “It’s taking too long to take Trump down. What’s the holdup?”

MUELLER: “I cant help it if all the Democrats’ wrongdoing comes up everywhere I dig.”

OBAMA: “Don’t you understand? Trump will unseal my records. I’ll never get rich quick off my foundations like the Clintons. And besides Michelle will kill me.”

MUELLER: What are you complaining about? I’m looking like the biggest incompetent in L/E trying to help you guys out.”

OBAMA: “You’ve got to do more. There’s stuff in my records that’ll finish me. Those SOB American patriots would love to get their hands on my background.”

MUELLER: “Cripes, you sound like you were an exotic Kenyan male escort before you got into politics.”

OBAMA “Aint no money in dick-licking. The real money is in politics.”

Congress is SURPRISED to hear this “news”?



These folks couldn’t keep our country safe if their grandchildrens lives depended on it.

They wait for crap to happen TO US, then get in front of cameras AFTER THE FACT.... and simply TELL us about it and why we should be outraged.

Then they let the criminals carry on as if nothing can be done...

I’ve had it with this treatment.

I think this is all a pushback against meuller’s farce. Start closing in on obama/clinton and they will tell meuller to end his witch hunt.

Hopefully, this will turn out to be real look at the criminal actions by Obama and his thugs.

However, until then, I post my normal response to these stories:
