It’s the dogshit deal that just keeps on giving. This claim hasn’t been verified yet, so take it with a grain of salt. But would it surprise you the least bit if this were true? Via Fox News:
The Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials, while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, a senior cleric and member of parliament has claimed.
Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour, who is chairman of Iran’s parliamentary nuclear committee and a member of its national security and foreign affairs committee, made the allegations during an interview with the country’s Etemad newspaper, cited by the country’s Fars News agency.
He claimed it was done as a favor to senior Iranian officials linked to President Hassan Rouhani, and he alleged the move sparked a competition among Iranian officials over whose children would benefit from the scheme.
Because pallets of cash and bending over backwards for appeasement and additional concessions just wasn’t enough to seal the deal.
