Obama Announced "Secret" Deal in January
I can't blame the media and the GOP for saying things like "Obama secretly sent money to Iran" at this point in the news cycle--hell, there has to be some break from 24-7 Trump coverage. But in case folks missed it, and as I pointed out back in January, there was an awful lot of Iran news happening at once, the Obama Administration was pretty open about the first payment of $400 million from a legal settlement being sent to Iran.
It "looks like" something. That doesn't mean it is something. This might be delightful to the ears of people who want a scandal around the Iran nuclear deal, but I'm kind of with the folks who don't want worldwide proliferation and first use nuke strategy (unlike He Whom I've Already Named.)
