Russian Oligarch Helped FBI to Rescue American in Iran – But HILLARY Nixed The Entire Mission – Today Robert Levinson Rots in Secret Iranian Prison

How evil is Hillary Clinton?

This evil…

Photos of Robert Levinson were published in 2013 after five years in captivity in Iran.

Robert Levinson, a private investigator, disappeared in 2007 on the Iranian island of Kish. The Iranian government has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his disappearance.

In 2010 and again in 2013 the Iranian regime released photos of Levinson. He looks thin and haggard.

Today John Solomon at The Hill reported on the rescue attempt of Robert Levinson back in 2009-2010 that never happened.

Hillary Clinton called it off.

They said FBI agents courted Deripaska in 2009 in a series of secret hotel meetings in Paris, Vienna, Budapest and Washington. Agents persuaded the aluminum industry magnate to underwrite the mission. The Russian billionaire insisted the operation neither involve nor harm his homeland.

“We knew he was paying for his team helping us, and that probably ran into the millions,” a U.S. official involved in the operation confirmed.

One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirm.

Deripaska’s lawyer says the Russian ultimately spent $25 million assembling a private search and rescue team that worked with Iranian contacts under the FBI’s watchful eye. Photos and videos indicating Levinson was alive were uncovered.

Then in fall 2010, the operation secured an offer to free Levinson. The deal was scuttled, however, when the State Department become uncomfortable with Iran’s terms, according to Deripaska’s lawyer and the Levinson family.

FBI officials confirmed State hampered their efforts.

Tonight on The Ingraham Angle John Solomon explained what happened when the deal fell apart.

John Solomon: The lawyer for the family told me they had a deal. Deripaska came back. We were sending a plane to the tarmac, we’re going to rescue him. There’s a statement that the Iranian government wanted saying, “We really weren’t involved.” And Hillary Clinton was unwilling to give them that, a sort of absolution. So the deal fell apart. The plane left and he was never rescued.

Did you get that?
** The Russian oligarch helped secure the release of US prisoner Robert Levinson from the Iranian regime using HIS OWN MONEY.
** The oligarch Deripaska secures the release of the American Robert Levinson.
** And then Hillary Clinton refuses to read the Iranian statement and so the entire rescue was nixed.

Then in 2016 when Obama signed the ridiculous nuclear deal with Iran and gave them billions and billions of US dollars — He also did not get Levinson back.

Today Levinson rots in an Iranian jail while Hillary Clinton continues with her lavish lifestyle.
