After President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran Deal, he engendered a lot of anger from Democrats and some European leaders.
But Iran was incensed, not just because of the nuke deal but because the pullout means that new sanctions will be imposed on them as a result.
And according to a Middle East analyst for the Jerusalem Post, Raman Ghavami, an Iranian official made a very interesting threat:
“H.J.Ansari Zarif’s senior advisor: “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make #IranDeal happen.”
That would be interesting.#JCPOA”
Ghavami did a lot of solid reporting on the recent protests in Iran and he’s definitely doesn’t seem a fan of the regime. So one will have to see what comes of this report in the coming week or if he has more to come.
From Biz Pac Review:
The adviser’s tweet appears to suggest that some Western officials partook in “pay-to-play” schemes by accepting money to support and ultimately sign the deal. The accusation makes perfect sense given that there was no legitimate reason whatsoever to support the horrible one-sided deal pieced together in 2015 by then-President Barack Hussein Obama.
As noted by Fox News panelist Charles Krauthammer at the time, “The most astonishing thing [about the deal] is that in return, they [Iran] are not closing a single nuclear facility. Their entire nuclear infrastructure is intact.”
“They are going to have the entire infrastructure in place either for a breakout after the agreement expires or when they have enough sanctions relief and they want to cheat and to breakout on their own,” he added.
The world got absolutely nothing in return for signing the deal, yet numerous officials across the Western world signed it anyway. Why?
Social media was fascinated by what names might be dropped if the threat is true and if the official were to carry through on it.
