Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered a review of the claims in an explosive Politico report that said former President Obama dropped prosecutions of the terrorist group Hezbollah in order to strengthen the chance that his nuclear deal with Iran would be successful.
Sessions released a statement to reporters Friday evening explaining why he ordered the review.
“Operations designed to investigate and prosecute terrorist organizations that are also fueling that drug crisis must be paramount in this administration,” Sessions said.
“While I am hopeful that there were no barriers constructed by the last administration to allowing DEA agents to fully bring all appropriate cases under Project Cassandra, this is a significant issue for the protection of Americans,” he added.
“We will review these matters and give full support to investigations of violent drug trafficking organizations,” he concluded.
