Congress has launched an investigation into former U.S. President Barack Obama and his pursuit to obstruct a longstanding investigation into Hezbollah, the Iran-backed terror group.
Lawmakers are launching an investigation into Obama-era efforts to thwart a longstanding U.S. investigation into the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah, according to multiple congressional officials and insiders who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon, reported Freebeacon.com .
According to a report in Politico, Obama administration worked hard to hide Enforcement Agency investigation into Hezbollah and his profitable drug trade to Latin America. These officials obstructed investigation to escape upsetting Iran and threaten the landmark nuclear agreement.
In order to avoid angering Hezbollah’s patron Iran, which could have jeopardized the landmark nuclear agreement, Senior Obama officials in the Treasury and Justice Departments are said to have undermined the DEA’s investigation at multiple junctures.
Congress is now investigating the reports, which numerous sources characterize to the Free Beacon as segment of a larger Obama administration attempt to overlook Iran’s global terror operations in order to cement the nuclear deal.
Member of the House Oversight Committee and chair of its National Security Subcommittee Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), told the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday that he and other top lawmakers are investigate evidence that could imply top former Obama officials, along with the architect of the former administration’s self-described pro-Iran “echo chamber”, and National Security Council official, Ben Rhodes.
“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,” said DeSantis.
