As his time in the White House is coming to an end, new scandals appear which confirms that Barack Obama should’ve never been allowed to enter there in the first place. It has been revealed by the Treasury Department and Congress that Obama was directly involved in a money laundering scheme, pilling up around $1.7 billion and giving it to Iran year after year.
Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.), a House Intelligence Committee member, got a disclosure from the Treasury Department which shows that an initial $400 million cash payment to Iran was wired to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) and then converted to Swiss francs and moved to an account at the Swiss National Bank,
Then, the money was withdrawn by the New York Federal Reserve Bank and were sent to an agent of Iran’s Central Bank.
“By withholding critical details and stonewalling congressional inquiries, President Obama seems to be hiding whether or not he and others broke U.S. law by sending $1.7 billion in cash to Iran. But Americans can plainly see that the Obama administration laundered this money in order to circumvent U.S. law and appease the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Pompeo said.
This proves the suspicions about Obama’s business with Iran. He practically gave them the money for nuclear weapons, directly funding terrorism against the United States.
Some of the money was meant for releasing the Iran-captivated prisoners from America and was sent three days before their release.
Because of this, Pompeo and Senator Ted Cruz are questioning Obama’s actions. “Think about this timeline: the U.S. withdraws $400 million in cash from the Swiss National Bank and then physically transports it to another city to hand-off to Iranian officials—three days before Iran releases four American hostages. But it gets worse: less than a week after this, the U.S. again sends hordes of cash to Iran. As we speak, Iran is still holding three more Americans hostage, and I fear what precedent this administration has set,” Pompeo said.
Additional $1.3 billion cash payment was facilitated by the Dutch Central Bank, which helped the United States transfer the money to an account before it was converted into euros, and then sent to an Iranian official.
“The American public and Members of Congress understand psychology—if the administration is hiding something, there is a reason. President Obama, Secretary Kerry and others would like to pretend that their months of evasiveness and stonewalling regarding Iran are normal, but their behavior indicates otherwise”, an anonymous Congressional Advisor who assisted with the investigation of this said. “Refusing to answer basic questions about millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars paid to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism only invites more questions.”
While the money was mostly used for releasing American hostages, it also encourages terrorist countries to continue kidnapping in order to extort money from the U.S. government.
However, Obama’s administration claimed that it was completely legal and allowed operation.
The Defense Finance and Accounting Services collaborated with Iran’s Foreign Military Sales Program into enabling the transaction and keeping it on the down-low.
The fact that it was kept as a secret proves that things weren’t done legally, which is why Obama must be prosecuted for money laundering, but mostly for collaborating with AND funding terrorists. He needs to be transferred from office directly to jail.
