RUSH: We’ve got… There’s a plethora of news about the $400 million ransom payment, the single-payer ransom program of Barack Hussein Obama.
“If you like your hostage, you keep your hostage,” is the slugline of the single-payer ransom program. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton said, “That’s old news! (snorts) You’re asking me about something that happened…? It’s old news. What difference does it make now?” Which is a standard Clinton technique. “That’s old news! Nobody cares about that anymore,” and one of the things that the Regime was saying… They had their State Department spokespeople go out and say, “It’s a coincidence. It’s just a coincidence.
That’s because international law, because of the sanctions, does not permit that. So we had to print a bunch of money; we then had to convert it into Swiss francs and Euros and other currency. And Dr. Krauthammer made the point on Fox News last night that that is money laundering, folks. The Regime laundered $400 million in American currency in order to “legally,” quote/unquote, give it to the Iranians. He made the point if any American CEO had done that he would be in jail before the trial even began.
