Hundreds of Hezbollah Money-Laundering Businesses Still Operating after DOJ Shut Case Down

Derek Maltz, a former senior official from the Drug Enforcement Administration, sat down with Fox News’ Shannon Bream Thursday night to discuss the Obama administration’s quashing of a drug probe involving Hezbollah while it was negotiating the Iran nuclear deal. Maltz is the DEA whistleblower Politico investigative reporter Josh Meyer quoted extensively in his bombshell report about the scandal last month.

Maltz said he “found it very, very odd” that used cars from all over the United States were being exported to West Africa and that profits from those sales and drug trafficking were going to Hezbollah to the tune of $200 million per month.

“So I found it kind of odd that we didn’t have a unity of effort to actually shut [the operation] down,” Maltz told Bream.
