Democrats have been absolutely furious about Trump dissolving various aspects of Obama’s legacy, especially the Iran Deal. This is not a secret.
This weekend, it became known that John Kerry has had meetings with Iran where he advised them to just wait out the Trump presidency. However, that may just be the tip of the iceberg. Republican operative Richard Goldberg tweeted an ominous claim yesterday about Obama officials advising Europe on how to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran which are due to take effect this fall.
Joel B. Pollak reports at Breitbart:
Claim: Former Obama Officials Advising Europe to Evade Iran Sanctions
Richard Goldberg, the Republican political operative who helped coordinate opposition to the Iran deal on Capitol Hill, claimed Saturday evening that former Obama administration officials were trying to devise ways to help Europe evade sanctions on Iran.
Goldberg was reacting to former Secretary of State John Kerry’s admission last week that he had been meeting with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif in an effort to persuade Iran to stick with the now-defunct Iran nuclear deal, which President Donald Trump withdrew from in May.
…Goldberg tweeted that he had heard from his sources in Europe that Obama alumni were advising European governments about how to evade new U.S. sanctions against Iran:
I have been told by banking officials in Europe that former senior Obama officials worked with European officials to design sanctions evasion schemes. This effort was likely closely coordinated with the Islamic Republic. Hard to imagine Kerry didn’t discuss these efforts as well. https://t.co/jzMgZ9avbS

The new sanctions, which go into full effect in November, effectively force European banking institutions to choose between doing business with Iran and doing business with the U.S.
Sadly, this claim is not hard to believe. We already know the lengths Obama loyalists will go to in order to preserve Obama’s legacy. These are the same people who still haven’t accepted the outcome of the 2016 election nearly two years later.
The question now is that if these claims are true, what will be done about it?
