Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of the claims in an explosive politico report that aforesaid former President Obama born prosecutions of the terrorist group Hezbollah so as to strengthen the possibility that his nuclear influence Iran would achieve success.
Here’s a Fox News report on the new investigation:
What are the accusations against Obama?
The politico report claimed that varied prosecutorial actions against Hezbollah were abandoned by the Obama administration so as to secure the success of the Iran Deal.
Former Obama administration officers have denied the accusations vehemently.
What did Sessions say about the claims?
“Operations designed to investigate and prosecute terrorist organizations that are also fueling that drug crisis must be paramount in this administration,” Sessions said.
“While I am hopeful that there were no barriers constructed by the last administration to allowing DEA agents to fully bring all appropriate cases under Project Cassandra, this is a significant issue for the protection of Americans,” he added.
“We will review these matters and give full support to investigations of violent drug trafficking organizations,” he concluded.
Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) praised the action, saying, “I’m encouraged that the Justice Department recognizes that this is important and I hope that they will swiftly provide answers. Terrorists don’t get a pass to exploit drug addiction here at home and use American dollars to fund their global violence.”
