One of the most important pieces of legislation in Barack Obama’s presidency is the Peace Deal with Iran. Achieving this has not been easy, as he has faced intense opposition from Republicans. Now, wiretapping evidence has revealed that Israel’s Prime Minister, Netanyahu, attempted to bribe several top Republican lawmakers to block President Obama’s plans.
Thus far, there is no definitive evidence that these lawmakers accepted those bribes. However, the evidence appears to be damaging for Netanyahu’s reputation. If they can prove that these Republicans actually did take money from a foreign government for the purposes of blocking the plans of the Commander-in-Chief, it could be considered a treasonable offense.
President Obama has struggled to achieve this deal because of Republican resistance, which included 47 Republicans writing a letter to the Iranian government without authorization from him. It has been a very contentious battle, but the deal has been completed at last, and Iran is beginning to comply with the terms by relinquishing its stores of uranium to the Russian government.
In the weeks and months to come, the world will start to see the results of this historic deal and be able to judge whether it was the right move for the greater global good. But we can certainly expect some very serious backpeddling on Netanyahu’s part.
