Biden White House Refuses to Block $6B Iranian Bribe


(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) President Joe Biden is facing increasing pressure to reverse his infamous decision to unfreeze $6 billion in Iranian assets as part of a prisoner swap, following Iran’s reported role in the Hamas terrorist attack against Israel.  

The move has ignited a firestorm of controversy as Republicans and critics question the wisdom of releasing funds to a nation potentially complicit in terrorism.

When asked about the decision to allow Iran access to the frozen assets, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan remained disturbingly tight-lipped.

A White House reporter pressed him for answers, saying, “You just laid out all of the ways that Iran is complicit in this and facilitated it over years of support for Hamas. Is that reason enough to refreeze the $6 billion that the U.S. helped unlock for them to get in exchange for the prisoners?” 

Sullivan responded, “We have not yet had a dollar of that $6 billion spent. And I will leave it at that.”

Despite the reporter’s persistence, Sullivan doubled down on his response, adding, “Let me just reiterate what I said, because it’s unequivocal: Not a dollar of that money has been spent. And I will leave it at that.” 

Critics argue that Iran may use the unfrozen assets to bolster terrorist activities. Notably, the Wall Street Journal reported that Iran played a role in assisting Hamas in its recent terrorist attack against Israel. 

Secretary of State Antony Blinken has refused to confirm Iran’s involvement in the attack, despite disturbing video footage that appears to show Iranian government officials celebrating the violence. The video captures them chanting, “Death to America! Death to Israel.”

In response to these allegations, Blinken claimed, “We have not yet seen evidence that Iran directed or was behind this particular attack, but there is certainly a long relationship.”
