A Republican lawmaker from North Carolina Robert Pittenger on Monday sent a warning to the House and called for an investigation into a report on the Obama administration’s handling of an anti-Hezbollah task force. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has launched a full review of Project Cassandra following a bombshell report to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal was achieved.
According to the latest information and surveys, the most of the American people including and President Trump believe that Jeff Sessions has abdicated his duties as Attorney General by failing to investigate the corruption committed by the Obama administration. AG Sessions has yet to appoint a second special counsel to investigate the Clinton-Uranium One deal, and recently defended disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok from media scrutiny due to his anti-Trump texts.
Lou Dobbs, the Fox Business News host has suggested that the Deep State may an “enormous file,” on Sessions, “prohibiting him from serving the president he signed up to serve.”
Fox News reports:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is launching a review of a law enforcement initiative called Project Cassandra after an investigative report was published this week claiming the Obama administration gave a free pass to Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal would stay on track.
The Justice Department said in a statement to Fox News that Sessions on Friday directed a review “to evaluate allegations that certain matters were not properly prosecuted and to ensure all matters are appropriately handled.” […]
DOJ officials told Fox News the review could lead to new prosecutions of people affiliated with Hezbollah. It could also lead to an Inspector General investigation of personnel matters relating to the project.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and other lawmakers are also examining ‘potentially criminal’ evidence that could implicate former top Obama officials, including NatSec official Ben Rhodes. This week, DeSantis and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) instructed the Justice Department to hand over all documents relation to the alleged scheme.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Congress instructed the Department of Justice on Thursday to turn over all documents and communications that may be related to newly disclosed efforts by the Obama administration to handicap an investigation into the terror group Hezbollah and its Iranian benefactors, according to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. […]
“I’ve long believed that the Obama administration could not have done any more to bend over backwards to appease the Iranian regime, yet news that the Obama administration killed the investigation into a billion dollar drug ring that lined the terrorist group Hezbollah’s pockets in order to save its coveted Iran deal may very well take the cake,” DeSantis said. […]
Congressional leaders have begun a formal investigation into the matter and petitioned the DOJ to hand over “all documents and communications” that may shine light on “interference with the DEA’s law enforcement efforts against Hezbollah,” according to a letter sent by Reps. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.) and Jim Jordan (R., Ohio.).
“We have a responsibility to evaluate whether these allegations are true, and if so, did the administration undermine U.S. law enforcement and compromise U.S. national security,” the Republican lawmakers wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The Obama administration is believed to have deliberately put the kibosh on charging numerous drug dealers and arms dealing, such as Hezbollah operative nicknamed the ‘Ghost,’ and Abdallah Safieddine, the terrorist organization’s de facto envoy to Iran. All the while both Hezbollah and Iran made massive sums selling “drugs, weapons and used cars, [along with] diamonds, commercial merchandise and even human slaves,” say ex-Project Cassandra agents.
