Mr. Speaker, during negotiations with the criminal Ayatollah, the U.S. paid Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, a $400 million ransom to free hostages.

Shockingly, the administration now has made two additional payments, totaling $1.3 billion. Speculation is our government may have used underhanded and sneaky tactics, multiple hard currencies, and precious metals to hide the filthy lucre from Americans.

The government’s payments of bags of clanking coins to the outlaw nation will not go to build roads and bridges and hospitals. Instead, it is going to Iran’s corrupt military and helping radical terrorists continue to spread murder and aggression.

Illusionaries say that the Iranian nuclear bribe deal will help us live together in peace and harmony. Peace is not what the rogue nation wants.

They want death to America. Why did our government pay off the Ayatollah to preach hate and prepare for war? We don’t need to pay Iran to hate us. They will do it for free.

And that is just the way it is.
