Way to go Sessions! Last month, Attorney Jeff Sessions had a presser where he announced that they would re-open an investigation of the Hezbollah drug trafficking, money laundering scheme.
Sessions, at the time, said that Project Cassandra ran into “roadblocks.” The scheme occurred during the Obama Administration.
Politico broke the story, last month, which prompted Sessions to open an investigation. Politico included Project Cassandra and well sourced information. To read the backstory click HERE. Politco reports that there were 30 agencies involved and more than one billion dollars at stake.
Fox News broke the name of the task force today. The Hezbollah Financing and Narcoterrorism Team (HFNT).
Fox News reported: “The task force…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.
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.”
Jeff Sessions, during a statement said that 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.” as reported by Newsweek.
Former chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Jason Chaffetz responds to the announcement. Watch video below.
“Congress absolutely needs to get to the bottom of this. This is exactly one of those disgusting stories. Where for purely political reasons, so that the Obama Administration could complete a deal with Iran.
They turned their nose away. These investigators, they put their lives on the line. They are doing a great investigation. And then to get to the point where they are seeing that there are untold amount of drugs and cocaine coming into the United States of America via HEZBOLLAH of all people. And they are just start to turn a blind eye – to NOT prosecute – to just ‘tone it down’?
I mean Politico, hats off to them. Because this is one of the best pieces of investigative journalism.”
