(DailyCaller) It appears that Barack Obama and State Department spokesman John Kirby lied to the American people earlier this month about the $400 million cash given to Iran when they claimed that it was not a ransom payment for the Americans held hostage.
BREAKING: State Dept. says $400 million cash payment to Iran was contingent on American prisoners’ release.

According to the Associated Press, State Department Spokesman John Kirby said the negotiations surrounding America’s return of the $400 million, which was part of a $1.7 billion deal to settle an arms dispute that dates back to the 1970s, were conducted separately from the prisoner negotiations.
In the State Department’s briefing, Kirby was asked, “In basic English, you’re saying you wouldn’t give them the 400 million in cash until the prisoners were released, correct?”
“That’s correct,” Kirby replied.
Watch it right here for yourself. This is absolutely UNREAL.
Now, this isn’t a surprise to most of you reading this, but to have it made official is a big deal. A LOT of people under Obama have now been official caught lying about this painfully obvious situation. I’m sure the State Dept. spokesperson who exposed the lie is probably regretting that decision right about now.
This just proves without a doubt that we’ve been hoodwinked for 8 years and that it’s more important that EVER before to make sure Obama’s lying legacy doesn’t make it to a third-term with a Hillary Clinton win in November.
We need Trump, and we need him BAD.
