Congress to Investigate Obama Scheme to Nix Investigation into Hezbollah Terrorists

via Free Beacon.
Lawmakers are launching an investigation into Obama-era efforts to thwart a longstanding U.S. investigation into the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah, according to multiple congressional officials and insiders who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

The Obama administration worked behind the scenes to thwart a decade-long Drug Enforcement Agency investigation into Hezbollah and its highly lucrative drug trade in Latin America, according to a report in Politico. These officials are believed to have run interference on the investigation in order to avoid upsetting Iran and jeopardizing the landmark nuclear accord.

Senior Obama officials in the Treasury and Justice Departments are said to have undermined the DEA's investigation at multiple junctures in order to avoid angering Hezbollah's patron Iran, which could have jeopardized the landmark nuclear agreement.

Congress is now taking steps to formally investigate the reports, which multiple sources described to the Free Beacon as part of a larger Obama administration effort to overlook Iran's global terror operations in order to cement the nuclear deal.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Oversight Committee and chair of its National Security Subcommittee, told the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday that he and other top lawmakers are examining evidence that could implicate top former Obama officials, including National Security Council official Ben Rhodes, the architect of the former administration's self-described pro-Iran "echo chamber."

We all better hope this isn't true.

I am fully convinced that the war in Syria...and especially OUR conduct of the war exposed a terrible truth.  We supported both directly and indirectly some terror groups.

The idea of "moderate" rebels was a lie that McCain and others will have to settle up with their God about.

Having said that if this thing kicks off and if a link can be found, we can expect more than the Obama Admin to be implicated and his tenure in office forever stained.

We can expect tracks leading back decades and unsavory information about govt activities to explode on the scene.

One thing though.

Is this the real purpose of the resistance?  Is there stuff that happened over the past 8 years of the previous admin that could forever tarnish their legacy that they're determined never sees the light of day?

2017 wasn't fun.  2018 will probably be worse.
