Obama’s Unexplained $400M Payment To Iran May Become Dems Downfall

Jim Kouri  "Despite what many on the left try to claim, Obama’s time in office was filled with scandal. He repeatedly abused his power and likely engaged in illegal activity. One of his biggest scandals involved Iran.
While Obama was president, the Treasury Department negotiated with Iran to have several American prisoners released. After they were set free, the U.S. government then sent millions to Iran, leading some activists to believe the money was payment for letting the American prisoners go. They are concerned that paying a ransom in this way was an illegal abuse of power and want to know more about the secretive deal. To get more information, some activists are suing the federal government.
Obama Iran's money"According to reports, Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch, which is the government watchdog organization responsible for filing the lawsuit, says they hope to learn as much as possible about the potentially illegal exchange. “The Trump administration’s agencies should follow the law and release all they can about the Obama-Iran payoff scandal,” he said in reference to the suit, noting, “the Obama administration’s secretive $400 million payoff to the Iranian regime was an abuse of power and may have been illegal.”
"Specifically, to figure out whether or not the money was, in fact, payment in exchange for the prisoners, Judicial Watch is suing the State and Treasury Departments for more information on the transfer. Their lawsuit, which was filed last month, seeks to obtain “all records related to the transfer of approximately $400 million in foreign currency to the Islamic Republic of Iran in January 2016. This request includes, but is not limited to, all related records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of any of the following entities: The Department of the Treasury, The Islamic Republic of Iran, The Executive Office of the White House, The Department of Defense, The Department of Justice, and The Department of State.”
"The deal in question was made last year. Back in August, former President Obama and his administration sent a $400 million pallet of cash to Iran shortly after they released 4 American prisoners being held in Tehran." . . .
