A new ProPublica investigation reveals how Vice President Mike Pence’s office interfered with foreign aid programs in order to reroute the money to Christian groups abroad, particularly in Iraq.

The officials also worried that perceptions that the U.S. was favoring some religious groups could worsen sectarian divisions in Iraq.
