Barack Obama covered up multiple scandals during his time in office.
He expected that once he skipped out of the White House, his misdeeds would be buried for good.
But Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the one announcement that could bring Obama down for good.
Americans were horrified about a recent Politico report that described how the Obama administration let the Islamic terrorist organization Hezbollah run drugs into America.
They slammed the breaks on the DEA’s Project Cassandra because Hezbollah was an Iranian proxy and the administration’s chief goal was securing the Iran nuclear agreement.
Obama colluded with terrorists to strike a deal that allowed Iran to gain a nuclear weapon.
Millions of Americans were outraged that Obama sold out America by permitting drugs to flow in and making it possible for a terrorist nation to one day develop a nuclear weapon.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was having none of it.
He ordered the Justice Department to review all abandoned Hezbollah drug prosecutions.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered the Justice Department to dig into allegations in a POLITICO report that a series of potential drug prosecutions related to the pro-Iranian militant group Hezbollah were abandoned as the Obama administration pressed to strike a deal with Iran over its nuclear program.
Sessions indicated that he was troubled by allegations that Project Cassandra — the Drug Enforcement Administration’s drive to target Hezbollah’s foray into drug trafficking — ran into high-level roadblocks that stymied many of the cases agents wanted to bring as well as efforts to get suspects extradited from overseas to the U.S.
“Operations designed to investigate and prosecute terrorist organizations that are also fueling that drug crisis must be paramount in this administration,” Sessions said in a statement released to reporters Friday evening. “While I am hopeful that there were no barriers constructed by the last administration to allowing DEA agents to fully bring all appropriate cases under Project Cassandra, this is a significant issue for the protection of Americans. We will review these matters and give full support to investigations of violent drug trafficking organizations.”
Justice Department officials declined to comment on who will conduct the review or any other details about the inquiry.”
Obama politicized the Justice Department to achieve his administration’s policy ends.
And this is the second time Sessions has had to order a review in order to clean up the mess left behind by the Obama administration.
He previously ordered a review of the Uranium One deal to dig into the possible wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and to uncover any attempts at covering it up.
“Decisions to review criminal investigations conducted and closed under prior administrations are unusual, but not unheard of. This marks the second instance in the past two months of Sessions ordering a review of Obama administration practices.
Last month, Sessions agreed to review how the Justice Department handled allegations that proponents of a deal to purchase a mining transport company known as Uranium One made large donations to the Clinton Foundation in a bid to influence former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or her aides to approve the purchase. Sessions agreed to the review after many Republican lawmakers demanded appointment of a special counsel to investigate the issue, which was previously the subject of some investigative work by the FBI.”
