If the accusation being made by Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) is true, then not only was the Iran nuclear deal arranged under false pretenses, but the Obama administration lied to Congress and the American people about the terms of the Iran nuclear deal.
Portman, Chair of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, claims that his committee has found evidence indicating that the Obama administration told Congress and the American people that Iran would not be given access to the US financial system, when in fact, they did just that. Portman says the Obama administration was so desperate to ink the deal that they lied to America about giving Iran the keys to the store.
(Fox News) – The Obama administration granted a license letting Iran access the United States financial system despite officials’ pledges that they would prohibit it, according to a draft report from the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.
“On Feb. 24, 2016, the Treasury Department issued a specific license to Bank Muscat to authorize the conversion of Iran’s rials to euros through ‘any United States depository institution …,’” the draft report said. “Even after the specific license was issued, U.S. government officials maintained in congressional testimony that Iran would not be granted access to the U.S. financial system.”
“The Obama administration during the negotiation of the Iran deal misled the American people,” said Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), subcommittee chairman. “I think they did so because they were desperate to get a deal.” …
If Portman’s accusation is true, then the Obama administration is guilty of several crimes including defrauding the American people and treason, for aiding a known enemy of the United States. But what do you expect from America’s first Muslim occupant of the White House? He always did everything for his Muslim buddies while trying to sever ties with Israel. Obama has always cared more about Muslims and illegal aliens than he ever cared about the American people
