Barack Hussein Obama Sent $221-M to the “Palestinians” as His Last Act

US officials said Monday that the Obama Administration in its final hour defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221-M to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking.

A State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning before Donald Trump’s Inauguration.

The official said former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department Thursday. The aides said written notification dated 20 January 2017 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the Oath of Office.

In addition to the $221-M for the Palestinians, the Obama Administration also told Congress Friday it was going ahead with the release of another $6-M in foreign affairs spending, including $4-Mfor climate change programs and $1.25-M for UN organizations, the congressional aides said.
