Obama Admin Won’t Tell Congress How It Paid Iran $1.3 Billion in Taxpayer Funds
Mystery still surrounds payout to
The Obama administration is
withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who
told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now
stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.
The Departments of State,
Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the
circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash
payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the
administration had paid Iran a ransom.
