Politico is not the most conservative news organization on the web, but there’s certainly a level of balance going on in their newsroom.
Look no further than the lid they just blew off of Obama’s secret agreements on the Iran deal.
It’s already known that his administration essentially gave away the farm along with a literal plane-load of cash.
But now Politico’s digging has turned up evidence that Obama’s minions defunded criminal indictments and pending arrests by the FBI which had built a massive case against Hezbollah for running cocaine into the US to finance its terrorist operation against Israel.
IIt’s just one more domino to fall in the unraveling of the politicization of the FBI by Barack H. Obama.
After eight years, the Department of Justice appears to have become nothing more than a front for Obama’s pseudo-criminal operation.

And then the Obama administration stepped in to drain it of all resources, just to protect its deal with Iran:
One Obama-era Treasury official, Katherine Bauer, in little-noticed written testimony presented last February to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, acknowledged that “under the Obama administration … these [Hezbollah-related] investigations were tamped down for fear of rocking the boat with Iran and jeopardizing the nuclear deal.”
As a result, some Hezbollah operatives were not pursued via arrests, indictments, or Treasury designations that would have blocked their access to U.S. financial markets, according to Bauer, a career Treasury official, who served briefly in its Office of Terrorist Financing as a senior policy adviser for Iran before leaving in late 2015. And other “Hezbollah facilitators” arrested in France, Colombia, Lithuania have not been extradited — or indicted — in the U.S., she wrote. …
