Senator Demands Probe into Biden’s $6B Release to Iran Post-Hamas Attack



Clear Facts:

  • Sen. Tim Scott urges investigation into the Biden administration’s release of $6 billion in Iranian assets after Hamas’s Israel attack.
  • The fund release was part of a prisoner swap agreement where five Americans were exchanged for five Iranians.
  • Republicans assert that the released funds could aid Iran in supporting global terrorism.

Senator Tim Scott, R-S.C., prominent member of the Senate Banking Committee, is ringing alarm bells over the Biden administration’s controversial decision to release $6 billion in previously frozen Iranian assets.

This move comes hot on the heels of the aggressive attack on Israel by the Hamas militant group.

In a statement laden with concern, Scott declared, “In the face of evil, we must use every tool, weapon, and economic sanction available to provide for our nation’s security and the security of Israel.”

He emphasized the need for transparency, particularly in light of the close ties the U.S. shares with Israel.

Scott’s words were a clarion call for strength, saying, “We should be signaling strength — not leniency — when it comes to Iran.”

The backdrop to this contention was a prisoner exchange deal, a centerpiece of which was the liberation of $6 billion in Iranian funds, a move the Biden administration approved just last month.

The aftermath of this exchange saw a sum of money, originating from Iranian oil sales and frozen in South Korea, channeled to a Qatari bank.

The decision to release these funds was met with staunch opposition from Republican leaders. Their concerns hinge on the possibility of the $6 billion potentially bolstering Iran’s infamous backing of terrorism.

These reservations have only been magnified following Hamas’s shocking attack on Israeli territory this past Saturday, an onslaught that saw the loss of countless lives.


In a pursuit of clarity and accountability, Scott, a hopeful for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, stated the Senate’s responsibility to investigate the rationale behind the Biden administration’s decision.

He questioned, “how it could expect Iran to not use that money to continue to fuel terrorism.”

He further advocated for the enactment of the Solidify Iran Sanctions Act.

If passed, this legislation would cement the Iran Sanctions Act of 1996 and impose restrictions on funding directed to Iran’s energy sector.

Despite the brewing storm of criticism, Secretary of State Antony Blinken staunchly defended the administration’s actions, asserting on CNN’s “State of the Union” that “no U.S. taxpayer dollars were involved.”

Yet, Republicans remain unyielding in their critique. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., alongside 19 Senate Republicans, submitted a plea to President Joe Biden, urging him and the State Department to retract and refreeze the contentious $6 billion.

They highlighted Iran’s reputation as a global sponsor of terrorism and drew attention to reports that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had collaborated with Hamas on plotting the recent attacks against Israel.

The senators’ letter to the president expressed their collective dismay: “To stand by and allow Iran access to these funds as Hamas infiltrates Israel and murders, rapes, and mutilates countless Israelis is unconscionable.”


They further pressed the issue, stating, “The State Department should immediately rescind the waivers that allowed Iranian funds to be converted and moved to more accessible bank accounts, as well as work with U.S. ally Qatar to immediately freeze the accounts containing these funds.”

    The entire Biden Administration is treasonous den of snakes. A couple of hundred years ago the French developed an appropriate method for dealing with corrupt elites. It presented a cathartic show and guaranteed zero recidivism.

    I told my sister & everyone when he took office, “If anyone gets
    Us into WWIII it’ll be this IDIOT!!” People said President Trump
    would be the one. Well I hope all those people realize how much President Trump did for us & Israel with the Abraham accords. He
    Should’ve received the Nobel peace prize for that deal. But since it was Trump, the Dems and the fake news never even wanted to recognize it!!

    Biden listens to Obama and gets shitty ideas. Obama’s birth certificate was proved to be a fake, so as suspected, he was born in Kenya, Africa. A requirement for being POTUS is to be born here! He should never been elected, and has a leaning for his fathers religion, Islam. I think he is a muslim, over being Christian. The other influence is Bernie Sanders, who is a communist. Joe Biden has only a small part of his brain working, ans should be forced out of office. How long are Republicans take to get him out. Then VP Harris, is no better than Biden, because she knows nothing about running an office, let alone the country. There comes a time that if you need something bad enough, you take it. If some nut shot Joe, as other presidents have been, he would not be aware of of bullet going thru his head. He just runs everything by the seat of his pants, in other words, his asshole is being used for a brain.

    That money needs to be frozen, keep Iran from accessing it and re direct it to Israel to help them fight the terrorist regimes! Biden is giving lip service to Israel, but his boss Obama wants Israel destroyed! He is a Muslim through and through, and secretly supports the Muslim brotherhood, HIS people! Wake up folks, we need to back Israel 100 percent, and put boots on the ground if necessary.

    This is a no brainer as usual, this corrupt group in the White House is trying every possible way to destroy our country and even our Allies. We must resist every way that we can, and we need to help Israel in this awful time of war.
