US Attorney General Jeff Sessions launched a review of Project Cassandra on Friday.

Project Cassandra was a DEA effort that targeted illegal drug activities undertaken by the Iran-backed Lebanese-based terrorist group Hezbollah. A Politico exposé that was published on December 17 alleged that the Obama administration blocked a major part of the investigation to ensure Iran would sign the 2015 nuclear agreement.
