Iowa Congressman Steve King is questioning President Obama’s assertion that the U.S. did not pay ransom for the release of Iranian hostages.

Last week the Wall Street Journal reported 400-million dollars of a settlement with Iran was delivered, in cash, by plane to Iran, around the time Iran released four American prisoners.


OC………believe that.” :14

King says it appears to him Obama paid one-hundred-million) in ransom per hostage.


OC…………a chicken.” :05

President Obama said it “defies logic” to call the payment ransom.
Obama Administration officials say the payment settled a decades-long dispute negotiated by an international court at The Hague and the timing was coincidental.

King says it was no coincidence.


OC………of course they’re connected.” :15

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has also criticized the Obama Administration for sending “bushels and bushels” of cash to Iran.
