The Obama administration proved it was lying and paying a ransom to Iran. The United States had to pay the $400 Million in cash so Obama could keep it secret and no one would find out he was paying ransom even though all other payments made to Iran were with a wire transfer.
But when you control the Department of Justice, you can do pretty much whatever you want. Obama could outright have his political opponents murdered and he would face no repercussion from the top. Only the people can make him answer to his crimes and that is why democrats are so favorable for gun control. It isn’t a joke or conspiracy theory when people say Clinton, Bush and Obama have slowly established a third world tier government. There’s no separation of powers in the current office.
From the Daily Mail:
A senior U.S. official said the interest payments were made in a ‘fairly above-board way,’ but couldn’t say whether they were made in cash.
The Obama administration said Wednesday it paid $1.3 billion in interest to Iran in January to resolve a decades-old dispute over an undelivered military sale, two days after allowing $400 million in cash to fly to Tehran.
State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau says the U.S. couldn’t say more about the Jan. 19 payments because of diplomatic sensitivities.
They involved 13 separate payments of $99,999,999.99 and final payment of about $10 million. There was no explanation for the Treasury Department keeping the individual transactions under $100 million.
The money settles a dispute over a $400 million payment made in the 1970s by the U.S.-backed shah’s government for military equipment.
The equipment was never delivered because of the 1979 Islamic Revolution that overthrew the shah and ended diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Iran.
On Jan. 17, the administration paid Iran the account’s $400 million principal in pallets of euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currency, raising questions about the unusual payment.
The $1.3 billion covers what Iran and the U.S. agreed would be the interest on the $400 million over the decades.
