Charles Krauthammer is one of the most respected conservative political commentators and thinkers. Check out what he said concerning the Iranian ransom situation!
He said in relation to the $400 million payment we made to Iran for releasing prisoners: “They had to print the money here, ship it over to Switzerland, turn it into Swiss Francs and Euros, and then ship it over to Iran.”
“If a private company had done this, this is called money laundering. The CEO would be in jail right now.”
Krauthammer was reacting to a Wall Street Journal report saying that the Justice Department objected to the State Department’s decision to do this.
“Of course, the Justice Department objected,” Krauthammer said. “It was illegal.”
