On January 17, 2016, a cargo plane with $400 million in foreign currencies was secretly sent to Iran in the dead of night.
This was the same day the Iranian regime released four American hostages held in Tehran.

Barack Obama later told reporters this was not a ransom payment.
Former US Iranian Hostage Saeed Abidini told FOX Business Network today the Iranian regime WOULD NOT let his plane leave Tehran until the ransom plane arrived.
US officials held the ransom cash until the hostages were released.
Two days after Obama sent Iran the ransom cash the US government wired 13 individual payments for $99,999,999.99 , each with an independent MICR, totaling $1,299,999,999.87.
Already the cash from Obama’s ransom payment to Iran has been traced to terrorist groups in the region.
On Sunday President Trump blasted Barack Obama for his $1.7 billion bribe to Iran.
Never gotten over the fact that Obama was able to send $1.7 Billion Dollars in CASH to Iran and nobody in Congress, the FBI or Justice called for an investigation!
