Obama Gave Citizenship To Officials Says MP

Iran -- Member of Parliament from Qom city, Mojtaba Zolnour, undated.

Mojtaba Zolnour, a hardline member of the Iranian Parliament from Qom and a staunch opponent of President Hassan Rouhani, has charged that President Barak Obama granted US citizenship to 2500 Iranians while talks on the nuclear deal with Iran were going on.

According to Zolnour, Obama did the favor to some Iranian officials in order to “please them” while they were discussing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with US and five other world powers.

Zolnour and several other MPs have been conducting an investigation to prove that dual nationals have infiltrated the Iranian government.

In an interview with reformist daily Etemad, Zolnour also spoke about “a president whose son is a triple-national, of Iran, the United States and Canada,” but did not say which Iranian president.

Five current and former Iranian presidents, Hassan Rouhani, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Mohammad Khatami, Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, and Ali Khamenei have sons, however, it is not clear which one Zolnour has been talking about.

This story was was also broadcast on Fox News and metioned in a tweet by President Donald Trump earlier today.
