To say that corruption is rampant within the Obama administration would be a drastic understatement after all we’ve seen recently and it seems there’s a new scandal developing almost every day.
President Obama surrounded himself with people willing to ignore the constitution, as he has, break federal laws and even try to invent new ones as they go, bypassing congressional approval as if congress were irrelevant.
Attorney General, Loretta Lynch is no different. When president Obama decided to pay off the Iranians as a ransom for our American soldiers they kidnapped, an assertion which he denies of course, it raised a few questions that congress wants to query AG Lynch about.
The Washington Free Beacon has the details:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
The response from the attorney general’s office is “unacceptable” and provides evidence that Lynch has chosen to “essentially plead the fifth and refuse to respond to inquiries regarding [her] role in providing cash to the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” Rubio and Pompeo wrote on Friday in a follow-up letter to Lynch, according to a copy obtained by the Free Beacon.
The inquiry launched by the lawmakers is just one of several concurrent ongoing congressional probes aimed at unearthing a full accounting of the administration’s secret negotiations with Iran.
Thumbing your nose at congress apparently is the normal way to respond to inquiries, by anyone in the Obama administration these days!
By paying ransoms, president Obama is setting dangerous precedents for rogue states that might see kidnapping Americans as an easy way to make a quick buck or two or even a few hundred million.
America is already perceived as weak since Obama’s “bowing tour,” his follow-up “apology tour” and soon to be capped off with his “give away the store tour,” if we don’t stop him first!
