Marie Harf is very distraught about Politico blowing the whistle on Obama for giving Hezbollah pass

Fox News contributor Marie Harf was definitely not happy about what she called a “hit job” that exposed former President Obama’s alleged actions involving the terrorist group Hezbollah.

Former Obama officials like Harf dismissed Josh Meyer’s Politico bombshell detailing “how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook” by undermining the U.S. government’s own efforts to take down the terror group’s drug-trafficking operations.

“I was part of the negotiating team that got the Iran nuclear deal done,” the former Obama State Department spokeswoman told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday.

“Until Politico wrote this piece, I had never even heard of this program. You know, the Politico story, this narrative in it is just false. And there’s no evidence in this story to back up their allegations,” Harf said.  “They quote a couple of low level ideological sources who clearly don’t like the Iran deal, but everything I know just doesn’t back up this narrative.”

The report alleged that the Obama administration worked on “derailing” a Drug Enforcement Administration campaign aimed at the Iran-backed terrorist group’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering enterprises in order to secure the Iran Nuclear Deal.

“This story is a hit job, honestly, with no truth behind it,” Harf said.

Meyer reacted to Harf’s comments in an appearance with Fox News’ Shannon Bream, stating that her claim that his sources were “low-level” people was “sort of ridiculous.”

“They were not ideologues. They are not flawed. I don’t know what she’s talking about,” Meyer said. “These were the people, one was a Pentagon person, one was a DEA person. But I also talked to many, many dozens of other people to get sort of ground truth and see what their allegations were held up to the light of day. So this is not a story in 14,000 words where I was just taking spin from some people.”
