The US Treasury Department and Congress have now reveal that President Obama was involved in a $1.7 billion money laundering scandal in order to give the money to Iran.

This affair first came to light after Congressman Mike Pompeo, who is also a member of the House Intelligence Committee, got a disclosure from the Treasury Department, stating that Iran was paid $400 million dollar by the New York’s Federal Reserve Bank, later converted to Swiss Francs, and sent to a bank account in Switzerland.
Afterwards, the money in Switzerland were withdrawn by the New York Federal Reserve Bank and were sent to an agent of Iran’s Central Bank.
On this matter Pompeo said, “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.”
Obama was believed to have some money business with Iran and now it shows that they even had access to that cash. All this was o the money can be used to acquire nuclear weapons or fund terrorism against the United States.
The money in question were needed to release the Iran-captivated prisoners from America and were sent just three days before their release.
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.
This was all supported by the Dutch Central Bank, who helped the US transfer $1.3 billion in cash, later turned to Euros and sent to an an Iranian official who resided in Netherlands at the time.
An anonymous Congressional Advisor who assisted with the investigation of this said, “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” the source 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.”
This was sort of a bribe that Obama performed in order to release the hostages. This, however, encourages the hostile countries to do more kidnappings of this sort in order to extort money from the U.S.
According to Obama’s administration, this was a totally legal and allowed operation.
Also, it was stated that the Defense Finance and Accounting Services was collaborating with Iran’s Foreign Military Sales Program and made the transaction possible but quiet.
To have a scheme like this that was now revealed after all this time, it is simply appalling. Obama should be prosecuted and investigated regarding the matter, but most of all he should be out of the Office ASAP. Otherwise, America is doomed.
