A bombshell report published in Politico this week outlines the Obama administration’s secret efforts to let terror-group Hezbollah “off the hook” in an effort to appease Tehran ahead of the Iranian nuclear agreement.
The explosive report, titled “The Secret Backstory of How Obama Let Hezbollah Off the Hook” shows President Obama’s covert decision to back-off an American law enforcement crackdown on Hezbollah, even as the Jihadi network “funneled Cocaine into the United States” to finance its efforts.
“In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States,” writes Politico.
“Obama administration officials threw an increasingly insurmountable series of roadblocks in its way, according to interviews with dozens of participants who in many cases spoke for the first time about events shrouded in secrecy,” the author adds.
Hezbollah is a militant, anti-Israeli terror organization based in Lebanon and backed by the Iranian regime. Iran uses the network as a launching pad for attacks against Israeli soldiers stationed near the Lebanese border.
Hezbollah and Israel waged a direct war against each other during the 2006 Israeli-Lebanon War.
BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin Spied on Trump Campaign Chairman During Election
Former chairman of the Trump campaign Paul Manafort was wiretapped by federal investigators before, during, and after the 2016 general election; fueling speculation that private conversations between President Trump and senior aides was intercepted by Obama officials prior to his inauguration.
According to Fox News, the wiretapping was authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in 2014 as part of an ongoing FBI investigation over Manafort’s financial ties to Russia and Ukrainian officials.
The initial order expired in 2016 but was extended to early 2017.
Paul Manafort is a central figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into allegations that Russian officials meddled in the US presidential election on behalf of the Trump campaign.
His home in northern Virginia was raided by FBI officials in July.
The revelation that the federal government wiretapped senior Trump aides vindicates comments made by the President earlier this year, claiming that Obama officials had been listening to his private conversations.
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” tweeted the President in March.
DNC IN RUINS: Donna Brazile COMES CLEAN on Schultz, Hillary, Obama
Excerpts from former DNC Chief Donna Brazile’s upcoming memoir continues to send shockwaves in Democratic circles as the Clinton insider spills the beans on Debbie Schultz, Hillary, Obama, and others.
An excerpt, titled “Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC” was published Thursday by Politico, and illustrates the infighting, secrecy, and ultimate takeover of the Democratic Party by senior Clinton operates months before she won the nomination.
“Debbie [Schultz] was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was,” she wrote.
Brazile then turned her sites on Obama, saying “President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival.”
While the former DNC boss doesn’t say the arrangement was “illegal,” she does call Hillary’s takeover “unethical.”
“The funding arrangement with [Hillary for America] and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical,” she added.
