Washington Free Beacon: Iran May Have Received as Much as $33.6 Billion in Cash, Gold Payments From U.S.

New questions emerge on several billions paid out to Iran by Obama admin

Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.

A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

I guess Iran was charging high 'interest' on all that money that the US owed to it...

Did Obama order the plundering of Fort Knox to supply this gold?

I thought Congress controlled the purse strings. I would think this would have required congressional approval and if it was not obtained, would constitute high crimes and misdemeanors as our constitutional professor/president should know.
