We owe a debt of gratitude to “Judicial Watch” and the “American Center for Law and Justice” (ACLJ).
These amazing groups are doing the work that our good-for-nothing GOP politicians refuse to do.
These conservatives groups are holding the Dems responsible, they’re still going after Obama…and things are really starting to heat up.
Biden’s WH spox Jen Psaki has just been ordered by a judge to turn over an email that discusses the “back door’ negotiations with Iran and the cover-up of the lie.
This is a real tale of a deceptive administration.
Back in February 2013, Fox’s James Rosen asked the State Department’s Victoria Nuland if the Obama Administration had been holding secret talks with Iran. Nuland denied it.
Rosen: There have been reports that intermittently, and outside of the formal P5+1 mechanisms, the Obama Administration, or members of it, have conducted direct secret bilateral talks with Iran. Is that true or false?”
“Nuland: We have made clear, as the Vice President did at Munich, that in the context of the larger P5+1 framework, we would be prepared to talk to Iran bilaterally. But with regard to the kind of thing that you’re talking about on a government-to-government level, no.”
That of course was a complete and utter lie as it was later revealed. They had actually been holding secret talks behind the scenes with Iran for some time.
So later in the year after it became obvious that that was in fact a lie and that they had been holding secret talks, Rosen asked then State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki about it.
QUESTION: Is it the policy of the State Department, where the preservation or the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned, to lie in order to achieve that goal?
MS. PSAKI: James, I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that. . . .
In a nutshell, the Obama Admin admitted that they lied, but they basically said “F You” America, we did it for your own good.
But things got worse.
Red State goes on to say that Fox then later discovered that exchange between Psaki and Rosen then mysteriously edited out from the video on the State Department’s official website and Youtube channel. Eight minutes including that part and other comments on the Iran Deal were replaced with a white-flash effect.
The Obama Administration initially denied it was deliberate, blaming it on a “glitch.” But they later were forced to admit that the very same day of the comments, a video editor got a call from a State Department official to eliminate that portion of the briefing from the video. But don’t worry, even though it was deliberately done and they lied about it being a glitch, they don’t lie, said John Kirby, by then the State Department spokesperson. Nor did they think it was important to figure out who ordered it to be edited because “there were no rules in place” about such things at the time.
But the ACLJ, through their FOIA efforts in the whole matter, were able to discover an email from Jen Psaki with information relevant to the lie about Iran and when the secret negotiations actually started. But it’s so redacted it’s hard to tell what it says. So the ACLJ is requesting an unreacted version.
And now, the Biden State Department is covering for Obama and refusing to turn it over, claiming “security reasons.”
But a federal judge has stepped in and ordered Psaki to turn over the email by March 12th. He will review the email in private and see if there’s really a “security issue.”
It should be interesting – but thanks to ACLJ for kicking up this hornets nest =- thanks to them we may get some juice insight into what really went on with that disastrous Iran deal.
