Charles Krauthammer is one of the most respected conservative political analysts in America and Fox News commentator who appears nightly on “Special Report with Bret Baier. Krauthammer also writes a weekly political column that runs on Fridays.
When Krauthammer makes a statement or says something, we should pay attention to it. Recently, he commented on the situation with Iran and the ransom situation. On “Special Report” Charles Krauthammer said this is not a flip-flop for the Trump administration. He explained that an Iranian dissident group is alleging that Iran’s clandestine work on a nuclear weapon has continued after the deal, which he said may not violate the actual text of the deal, but certainly the “spirit.”
He said that three things are needed to develop a usable a nuclear weapon: fissile material, a way a to weaponize it, and ballistic missiles.
Here is what he had to say about Obama’s action on the whole deal:
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.”
He really embarrassed Obama in front of the entire country.The Iran deal was really, really bad for America. Hopefully Trump will reverse it.
