U.S. Congress To Investigate Obama's 'Hezbollah Scheme'

BIG NEWS: Congress WILL investigate Obama’s #Hezbollah Scheme

Congress is “formally” taking steps to examine claims made in a ground-breaking Politico article alleging that in order to appease Iranian officials while securing the Iran Deal, senior Obama administration officials deliberately thwarted an official investigation into Hezbollah’s massive drug-running operation “even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports that “multiple congressional officials and insiders” are “launching an investigation into Obama-era efforts to thwart a longstanding U.S. investigation into the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah…

One of the main players in the scandal is Ben Rhodes, an extreme partisan, anti-Trump, once-aspiring novelist whose brother David is President of CBS News. In response to the allegations made in the report, Rhodes referred to the left-leaning Politico as a “right wing echo chamber.”
Ironically, Rhodes was featured in a NY Times article by David Samuels written in May 2016 as admitting to manipulating the media to regurgitate the Obama Administration narrative.
“’We created an echo chamber,’ he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. ‘They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.’”

In that same article, Samuels described Rhodes as “…the master shaper and retailer of Obama’s foreign-policy narratives…”
The investigation is welcome.
