On Tuesday afternoon, PoliticalMayhem.news reported how Barack Obama quietly transferred $221 million to the Palestine Authority just a few hours before Trump took office. This move went against GOP lawmakers and of course, Obama did exactly what he wanted to anyway. Obama may have thought he was going to get away with this final act of treason, but his plans may have been thwarted.
Well, it looks like that fund transfer Obama was trying to push through has just reached a hiccup. The State Department has announced late Tuesday night that it will review those funds before releasing. The State Department must ensure that this transfer does in fact line up with President Trump’s agenda.
Representative Kay Granger one of the GOP lawmakers that help place the millions on hold said that she was disappointed that Obama did this. Granger called this defiance of congressional oversight on Obama’s part. She called it a defiance of congressional oversight on Obama’s part.
Granger said, “I worked to make sure that no American taxpayer dollars would fund the Palestinian Authority unless very strict conditions were met. While none of these funds will go to the Palestinian Authority because of those conditions, they will go to programs in the Palestinian territories that were still under review by Congress. The Obama Administration’s decision to release these funds was inappropriate.”
The Obama administration has been pushing for this release of money to the Palestine Authority for quite some time. Obama may have thought he got away with this, but he was not as clever as he gave himself credit for. You know that Obama must be livid finding out that the funds he was trying to give away have now been halted.
Hopefully, these funds will be redirected back to the American people and not to those who want to harm us.
