Shocking new revelations appear to show that the Republicans in Congress are insisting in pursuing their treasonous efforts to go around the President’s back and derail his foreign policy agenda. Last year, led by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), forty-seven Republican traitors sent a letter to the Iranian government in an attempt to scare them out of the President’s historic nuclear peace accord. Republicans in Congress were then caught taking bribes from foreign governments in exchange for their efforts against the White House.
But this time, they have gone too far. The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), Ali Shamkhani, alleges that Congressional Republicans attempted to parlay with the Iranian government in an attempt to postpone the recent prisoner exchange until after the election.
“In the course of the talks for exchanging prisoners, the Republican rivals of the current US administration who claim to be humanitarians and advocates of human rights sent a message telling us not to release these people (American prisoners) and continue this process (of talks) until the eve of US presidential elections. However, we acted upon our independent resolve and moved the process forward.”
These false patriots and treasonous dogs wrap themselves in the flag while secretly negotiating behind closed doors to condemn five Americans to languish in an Iranian prison just so they can use their captivity as a political weapon with which to bludgeon the President and the Democratic candidates. Their hypocrisy is incredible – the GOP has been obsessed with finding out the “truth” of the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, and then turn their coats and work to keep five Americans in the hands of the people they themselves call an enemy? American lives are nothing but political pawns for these self-serving cowards and fools.
It is a shocking and depressing day to see our legislators behaving with such disrespect for the office of the Presidency and his agenda and for the well-being of American citizens abroad. They have threatened our national security by exposing our partisan divide to a nation that they themselves insist wants to destroy us and previously worked to prevent President Obama from neutralizing that same nation’s nuclear program. They have disgraced our nation and the office they serve, and they must be made to pay for it next election.
