An explosive report published by Politico this weekend revealed the shocking steps President Obama took to ensure the passage of the Iranian nuclear agreement, covertly protecting Hezbollah as it smuggled drugs into the United States.
Now, at least one GOP lawmaker is demanding a federal investigation.
“The Obama administration reportedly was protecting Hezbollah terrorists who were funding themselves by trafficking illegal drugs”
The bombshell article outlined the Obama administration’s attempts to appease leaders in Tehran, blocking an ongoing federal investigation that was tasked with taking-down Hezbollah operatives throughout the Middle East.
GOP Rep. Robert Pittenger of North Carolina is renewing calls for a public investigation into the matter, saying the American people have the right to know exactly why the former President colluded with known-terrorists and Iranian officials.
“While American soldiers were bravely fighting ISIS terrorists, with some paying the ultimate price, the Obama administration reportedly was protecting Hezbollah terrorists who were funding themselves by trafficking illegal drugs. No wonder President Obama couldn’t bring himself to call them “Radical Islamist Terrorists,” said the statement from Pittenger’s office.

BOMBSHELL: Obama SECRETLY Protected TERROR GROUP to Appease Iran
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.
BARACK STRIKES BACK: Obama Jumps into Alabama Senate Race, RIPS Roy Moore
Former President Barack Obama waded into Alabama’s special election race on Monday, blasting GOP nominee Roy Moore in a series of recorded phone messages that urged residents to “get out and vote” for Democrat Doug Jones.
“Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress,” says the former President. “Doug will be our champion for justice. So, get out and vote, Alabama.”
“This one’s serious,” Obama adds. “You can’t sit it out.”
President Donald Trump recorded a similar message last week, imploring GOP supports to help send Roy Moore to the United States Congress; adding that the last thing Alabama residents want is Doug Jones representing them in the US Senate.
“We need Roy voting for us,” Trump says in the recording. “I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time.”
Embattled GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore is behind in recent polling, following weeks of controversies surrounding his candidacy. Last month, multiple women came forward and acused the Alabama judge of inappropriate sexual relationships while the women were teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
