Report: Trump Aides Hired Israeli Firm for “Dirty Ops” Targeting Supporters of Iran Nuke Deal

HeadlineMay 07, 2018

The Observer newspaper of London has revealed President Trump’s aides hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against members of the Obama administration who negotiated the Iran nuclear deal. The agency was asked to dig into the personal lives and political careers of several Obama officials—and their wives—as part of an effort to discredit the deal. According to The New Yorker, the secret effort was carried out by Black Cube—the same firm hired by disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein to stop publication of articles that exposed him as a sexual predator. Black Cube is made up of former officials from the Mossad and other Israeli agencies.
