Jeff Sessions just announced the DOJ is creating a task force to look into some serious crimes committed during the Obama administration.
The task force is called the Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT) and it takes aim directly at Barack Obama.
The news comes shortly after a bombshell Politico report that detailed how Obama, desperate to save his shady Iran deal, refused to stop Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations.
Oh, the tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive… and it may all come crashing down for Obama.
In case you missed the stunning Politico report this is the first sentence:
“In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States.”
According to Fox News, who broke the bad news to Barack, the DOJ is investigating this scandal.
“The Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team will start by looking into Project Cassandra, a campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) targeting the Lebanese terror group’s actions. Justice Department officials told Fox News at the time that the review could lead to new prosecutions of people affiliated with Hezbollah.”
“The Justice Department will leave no stone unturned in order to eliminate threats to our citizens from terrorist organizations and to stem the tide of the devastating drug crisis,” Sessions said.
And if that stone uncovers crimes by Barack Obama he will finally face justice.
The Department of Justice announced Thursday that it is creating a task force to take a fresh look at drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations linked to Hezbollah after an investigative report last month claimed that the Obama administration turned a blind eye to such activities to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.
The task force, dubbed the Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT), will begin its work by reviewing investigations stemming from Project Cassandra, a campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) targeting the Lebanese terror group’s actions.
According to a Politico report published last month, officials with the Obama Justice and Treasury Departments repeatedly delayed or rejected requests by Project Cassandra leaders to pursue significant investigations, prosecutors or sanctions.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of Project Cassandra days after the Politico report was published. Justice Department officials told Fox News at the time that the review could lead to new prosecutions of people affiliated with Hezbollah.
“The Justice Department will leave no stone unturned in order to eliminate threats to our citizens from terrorist organizations and to stem the tide of the devastating drug crisis,” Sessions said in a statement announcing the formation of HFNT.
Hezbollah was created in the early-1980s as part of an Iranian effort to counter the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon during that country’s brutal civil war. The U.S. has designated Hezbollah as a foreign terrorist organization since the State Department list was created in 1997.

The Politico report outraged multiple Republican lawmakers, who have demanded answers from the Justice, Treasury and State Departments.
Former Obama administration officials denied the story, with one calling it, “a figment of the imagination of two very flawed sources.”
“There are many reasonable critiques of Obama’s foreign policy,” former Obama National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor tweeted on Dec. 19. “The idea that he was soft on Hezbollah is not one of them.”
