Obama Regime Opened The Books To U.S. Financial System To Iran & Lied About It
While selling the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran to Congress, the Obama regime assured lawmakers that Tehran would not have access to our U.S. financial system. But in 2016 they did secretly granted Iran a license to do just that
Oh and they also staged “roadshows” encouraging foreign financial engagement with the Islamic Republic.
Not that we need further proof that the Obama administration is the most corrupt in history…
A new report claims that in pitching the Iran nuclear deal to Congress, the Obama administration lied to lawmakers that Tehran would not have access to the U.S. financial system…
Well, you can probably guess what happened next. The Obama administration turned around and granted a license to let Iran have access to the U.S. financial system!
Is it any wonder that John Kerry (see our report below) has been slamming President Trump just like the other corrupt people who were in the Obama administration? These people are guilty of betraying the American people! The report really opens the pandora’s box between Iran and what went on with the Obama administration to pass BILLIONS to Iran…BILLIONS!
The Weekly Standard reports:
The 53-page report by the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), chaired by Ohio senator Rob Portman, also reveals the extent of Obama administration efforts to encourage foreign countries to do business with Iran. Its release comes after President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would be withdrawing from the agreement and reimposing nuclear deal-related sanctions on Iran.
The lifting of those sanctions in January 2016 allowed Tehran to tap into its previously frozen assets abroad, including $5.7 billion rials held in an Omani bank, Bank Muscat. Iran wanted to convert those funds to euros, which could be done most efficiently by first converting to U.S. dollars as an “intermediary step.” In an effort to allow Iran to convert its once-frozen rials, the Treasury Department granted a specific license in February 2016 that authorized the Iranian assets to be converted using the U.S. financial system, according to the report.
“A conversion to U.S. dollars on behalf of the [Central Bank of Iran] was prohibited under U.S. sanctions,” the report says. “Other options existed to convert the funds from rials to euros without using the U.S. financial system. But using the U.S. dollar as an intermediary step was the most efficient means, even though U.S. sanctions prohibited it.”

Wednesday’s report also detailed efforts by Obama administration officials to drum up business for Iran, including over 200 “roadshows” abroad meant to encourage various countries to engage with Tehran. During one such trip, the report says, one U.S. official signaled that the administration would not stringently punish every sanctions violation.

IT DOESN’T END THERE:
President Barack Obama and his administration ALSO disbanded national security units which were originally charged with investigating Iran’s network of Islamic terrorism funding.
Obama, Valerie Jarrett (born in Iran), Susan Rice and other members of the former President’s inner-circle “systematically disbanded” special law enforcement units throughout the federal government that were investigating the Iranian, Syrian, and Venezuelan terrorism financing networks. Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry were concerned the counter-terrorism units would lead to Iranian officials walking away from Obama’s precious nuclear deal with Iran, according to a former U.S. official with expertise in dismantling criminal financial networks. https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/blog/6-takeaways-yesterdays-hearing-hezbollah/ More
