A former Barack Obama official made a shocking admission Thursday: The Obama administration stopped investigated terror networks to help their Iran nuclear deal look better.
The Washington Free Beacon reported Obama official David Asher told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday that ahead of negotiations for the nuclear deal, multiple top officials within Obama’s administration “systematically disbanded” investigations targeting financial operations of Iran, Hezbollah, and Venezuela.
Asher, previous adviser to General John Allen at the Defense and State Departments, said, “Senior leadership, presiding, directing, and overseeing various sections and portions of the U.S. intelligence community systematically disbanded any internal or external stakeholder action that threatened to derail the administration’s policy agenda focused on Iran.”
He slammed Obama’s administration in his testimony, blaming the decision for loss of intelligence and productivity previously gained.
“In narrow pursuit of the (nuclear agreement), the administration failed to realize the lasting effect on U.S. law enforcement collaborative efforts and actively mitigated investigations and prosecutions needed to effectively dismantle Hezbollah and the Iran ‘Action Network.'”

Obama’s precious nuclear deal came at a greater cost than ever previously believed, and U.S. intelligence is still suffering from the decision.
Several “top cops” retired upon the suspension of the programs, taking their years of intel and expertise with them.
“We lost much of the altitude we had gained in our global effort, and any aspects including key personnel, who were reassigned, budgets that were slashed – many key elements of the investigations that were underway were undermined,” Asher said.

He provided insight into the success of the programs that Obama rid the government of, saying, “The level of cooperation between the government of Venezuela, the government of Syria, and Lebanese Hezbollah that we observed in our operations – that we personally were involved with – including people in this room – was actually astonishing. The evidentiary base to take down this entire global network exists, the facts are clear.”
But Obama was so blinded by the Iran deal, he allowed these terror networks to continue to collude with each other and foreign governments.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce criticized Obama, saying Asher’s testimony in a, “striking lesson in life, which is the zeal for the deal, which becomes a deal for any cost.”
While this shocking revelation about this hidden cost of the Iran Deal came out last week, the mainstream media completely ignored it.
Their focus was solely on former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony, with CNN and MSNBC reporting on his statements in multiple front page stories, but remaining silent on Asher’s shocking testimony.
It further proves the anti-Trump media will only report on what fits their agenda, and have no problem covering up the clear wrongdoing of liberals.
