Charles Krauthammer is one of the most respected conservative political commentators and analysts.
He recently talked about the Iranian ransom situation and the $400 million payment we made to Iran for releasing prisoners. Here’s what he said:
“THEY HAD TO PRINT THE MONEY HERE, SHIP IT OVER TO SWITZERLAND, TURN IT INTO SWISS FRANCS AND EUROS, AND THEN SHIP IT OVER TO IRAN.”
“IF A PRIVATE COMPANY HAD DONE THIS, THIS IS CALLED MONEY LAUNDERING. THE CEO WOULD BE IN JAIL RIGHT NOW.”
As reported by Proud Patriots, Krauthammer gave his input on a Wall Street Journal report saying that the Justice Department objected to the State Department’s decision to do this.
“OF COURSE, THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OBJECTED,” KRAUTHAMMER SAID. “IT WAS ILLEGAL.”
In a recent interview, Krauthammer said that President Donald Trump must be able to deal with Obama and his administration.
“IT’S ONE OF THE MAIN CONSERVATIVE ARGUMENTS AGAINST BIG GOVERNMENT. IT’S NOT THAT IT’S JUST INEFFICIENT, IT’S NOT JUST THAT IT’S IMPERSONAL, IT’S NOT JUST THAT IN THE WAY THAT IT RESTRICTS OUR LIBERTIES, IT’S THAT IT DEVELOPS ITS OWN INTERESTS,” EXPLAINED KRAUTHAMMER.
“YOU’VE GOT TO GET THE SAME PEOPLE TO CARRY OUT A WEAKENING OF THEIR OWN POWERS. FOR THAT, YOU NEED A PRESIDENT WITH A LOT OF PUBLIC SUPPORT,” HE STATED.
“THIS PRESIDENT HAS THE TWO HOUSES OF CONGRESS WITH HIM, SO THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT, AND DEREGULATION IS ONE WAY TO DO THAT AND DEPOPULATION OF THE BUREAUCRACY, TO ALLOW THE NUMBERS TO GO DOWN BY ATTRITION, IS ANOTHER WAY TO DO THAT,” THE EXPERT ADVISED.
“EVERY TIME A NEW PERSON COMES IN AND ENTERS THE CABINET, BECOMES THE HEAD OF A DEPARTMENT, THEY INSTANTLY DISCOVER THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE ENTRENCHED, HAVE BEEN THERE FOREVER WHO KNOW THE ROPES AND CAN FOIL YOU SIMPLY BY DELAYING.”
“THIS IS A CHRONIC ISSUE, AND YOU WANT TO USE THE ENERGY AND THE SUPPORT AND THE HONEYMOON OF A NEW PRESIDENCY… TO GO AHEAD AND ATTACK IT,” EXPLAINED KRAUTHAMMER.
