Earnest: It’s Possible $400 Million Iran Received Could Fund Terrorism

WFB: White House spokesman Josh Earnest said during Wednesday’s press briefing it is possible the $400 million that the Obama administration airlifted to Iran could have been spent on funding terrorism.

“The president was quite forward-leaning in advance of the nuclear deal even being completed in acknowledging that we know that Iran supports terrorism,” Earnest said. “We know that Iran supports Hezbollah and the Assad regime, and it is certainly possible that some of the money that Iran has is being used for those purposes, too.”

Earnest said the Obama administration has been working with their partners in the Middle East to counter Iran’s nefarious activities but knows that the bulk of the $400 million had been used to address the current economic weaknesses the country continues to face.

  1. “It’s possible!?!” How about, it’s guaranteed to happen you dirty rotten shitbiscuit.

  2. Can you say: articles of impeachment? Richard Nixon is laughing in his grave a this level of treachery that seemingly condoned by the media.

  3. ….and holding a gun to my temple and pulling the trigger “could” cause a life-threatening injury.

    This will be filed in the “Earnest, No Shit” folder. Earnests’ folder is getting really thick.

  4. Barack is the absolute worst thing that has ever happened to America. I’ve believed that from day one. What a POS this “man” is.

  5. “We know that Iran supports Hezbollah and the Assad regime, and it is certainly possible that some of the money that Iran has is being used for those purposes, too.”

    Don’t say this administration doesn’t care about this point or the consequences of it. They do care!

    They want more of it.

    The quicker America gets destroyed, the quicker we can get to enslaving, I mean world-wide peace.

  6. It’s FACT that Obama is the biggest tool to ever disgrace the Presidency!!! He is doing more damage to this country than any foreign entity could.

  7. Josh is the best liberalbot the president has. He is blessed with the ability to repeat by rote, talking points given to him, without engaging his brain.

  8. Many of you here are probably unfamiliar with international transfer of funds between sovereign nations.

    It’s absolutely normal for settlements in the hundreds of million dollar range to be procured in cash in another countries currency, baled up, strapped to pallets and flown to the receiver on an innocuous cargo plane.

    Now, just because it LOOKS like a cash transfer between criminal enterprises (Sinloa Drug Cartel) or funds the banks can’t track because it leaves no paper trail so there is NO way to tell who ends up with the lucre, don’t let that bother you.

  9. Geee, I wonder whether the boys in Iran asked for used, non-sequential bills. Of course, a bunch of this will be used to fund terrorism. Getting untraceable cash in large amounts is always a problem either for criminals or terrorists. Obama just made it a non problem for the latter group.

  10. 1st-Earnest should change his name to liar-
    2nd-with $400 million couldn’t they have given $1 million to each of us that were born here legally by legal parents? the money would go back into the economy and we all would be very happy. guess not- but it was a good thought……
