Trump Admin Vows Penalties for European Countries Doing Business With Iran

BRUSSELS—The Trump administration will cut off all Iranian business interests in Europe and elsewhere as part of what it calls a "maximum pressure" campaign against Tehran that seeks to isolate the Iranian hardline regime and its allies, according to senior U.S. officials and congressional insiders who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Iranian leaders and some of its partners in Europe have been scrambling to skirt tough American sanctions that went into effect early last month.

Senior officials in the Trump administration tell the Free Beacon this policy of appeasement will not stand as it works to slice oil revenues to the Islamic Republic, which was recently granted waivers—to the consternation of many of Capitol Hill—so that it can continue its lucrative crude oil trade.

Again, Trump was right and the liberal European leaders were wrong. Along with Obama, Hillary and Kerry.
Did anyone really believe that the Iranian's wouldn't cheat?!?!?
Instead of Russian collusion, Mueller should be looking into why the Iranian deal was done so quickly. What was in it for Obama and Co.
