After the breaking news that federal authorities foiled an assassination plot linked to the Iranian government, it’s even more important that we know the full extent of the ties between Iran and the right-wing Big Oil billionaire Koch BrothersSo has the rest of the media. Why should the GOP respond for a flimsy story that nobody outside the fever swamps is talking about?
More than a week after Bloomberg’s investigation found Koch Industries profited from doing business with Iran, House Republican Leadership has responded with silence.
This is unacceptable. We can’t let this stand.Pathetic. These people have no shame.
Sign our petition right now insisting that House Republicans immediately demand an investigation of Koch Industries’ business dealings with Iran.
If we reach 150,000 signatures, we will deliver them directly to Republican Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor.
The controversial Republican billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch have spent untold millions bankrolling right-wing candidates and causes. Now they are the subject of the Bloomberg report that Koch Industries benefited from bribes to win business and sold millions of dollars of equipment to the Iranian regime, which is known for their sponsorship of terrorism and calls of "death to America."
This is all despite American trade sanctions against Iran and the country’s known links to financing terrorists.
After the new development that U.S. authorities foiled an assassination plot in America linked to the Iranian government, the business dealings of the Koch Brothers with Iran are all the more troubling and unacceptable.
We need to show grassroots Democrats are strong and unified in telling Speaker Boehner and Leader Cantor they must immediately demand an investigation of Koch Industries and its business dealings with Iran.
