Lawmakers to Request Probe of $418M Arms Sale to Kenya on Obama’s Last Day

A group of lawmakers is planning to request a congressional investigation of a $418 million U.S. weapons sale to Kenya approved by the Obama administration on its last day in office.

The sale, approved by the State Department and privately notified to Congress on January 19, would allow Kenya to buy 14 weaponized crop-duster-like planes — including two trainer planes and services, for missions against terrorist group al-Shabaab.

The deal was publicly announced the Monday after Trump’s inauguration.

A handful of lawmakers, led by Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC), are questioning why the contract to produce the planes was awarded to major defense firm L3 Technologies — which has never produced such a plane — while a smaller, disabled veteran-owned company in North Carolina that already make those planes at a lower cost was not considered.

The Mooresville, N.C. company, IOMAX USA Inc., costed out 14 planes at $237 million dollars, according to a Budd aide.

    Its very simple the company supported Obama or his minions, and if the better company with lower prices liked Trump and was veteran owned Obama wouldn’t give them a contract to clean toilets. Those jobs are saved for illegals.

  • Jim says:

    Arms sales to his HOME TOWN where he was BORN. That’s a surprise (NOT)!
    Treason, and prison for Obama! He helped Iran and now Kenya! The next Terror hot spot, sponsor by Obama!
    Thanks Liberals, you have harpooned America with your stupidity!

  • P-daddy says:

    The remaining millions goes to Obama and the DNC.

  • Askjrsk says:

    Private buisness would be penalized by government for such activity. It is illegal and UNAMERICAN to only employ black gay Muslims. Obamas knows this. He gives. WE THE PEOPLE THE FINGER.

  • justinwachin says:

    These deals need to receive congressional scrutiny. It sounds like this was more of a payout than an above-board deal.

  • Tiger says:

    This filthy bastard should have had his hands super glued to his forehead for his remaining days.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      I can think of super glue to another head.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        Yeah, to his own a$$!!

        1. Askjrsk says:

          You know I thought this was already done. Just looking at OBAMA seemed his backside and hands all super glued. No?
          Is the white wash kind of leaking off of OBAMA?

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            I don’t WANT to look at it!! :-/ I think that’s Bidens hands!

          2. Askjrsk says:

            Probably . Biden is quite HANDY

      2. Tiger says:

        Does he have one?

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          I KNEW IT, QUEER AS HE$$ and his live in is NOT A WOMAN either MIKE is a man!! I knew it was a made up family, those girls are no more their’s than watching pigs fly around the White house!

          1. Glenda Jordan says:

            When much of the talk came about the girls being “props” or adopted etc…I had thought it couldn’t be because imo the older daughter looks like michael/michelle but I realized she could be a relative either having lived with them (as a prop) or formally adopted. Crazy thinking ’bout it all…they may have pulled off one of the greatest cons.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            Glenda, they did pull off the biggest con game in American history, and let a black man do it! No way in he$$ that the Gov. would admit such an embarrassment to their lack duty on the job! They were totally made fools of and in no way were they going to stop Obama on his quest of destruction, that could have very well led to their own!! They were asleep at the wheel, PERIOD, but now things will change, but since Obama was getting his way for so long, the system and a lot of people can not cope!! NO telling what lies ahead my friend!!

          3. Glenda Jordan says:

            I’m @ work Rodney and posted when I had couple min down time (gets quieter @ nite). I thought ’bout my wording after I posted it and planned on editing/adding that I was strictly referring to their so called “family” con…but you’re quick on the keyboard lol. Yes barry was biggest con boy played on USA as we are living through the turmoil he created…others like moochelle and her mother were just along for a free ride and take, take, take as much as they could. You’re right- no telling what tomorrow will bring…as for me I stay close to God and my son w/ guns is never far. Good nite to you.

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            Good night my good friend!!

          5. Tiger says:

            It is worse than that. When a Senator he was well known for what and who he was. The scandal mags filled with it. But all that knew him and that life were killed when he ran for president. He is a bad man in more ways than one and with the vengeance of a Gay worse than a woman.

          6. Rodney Steward says:

            You think there are some 6’s on that monkey head!

          7. Tiger says:

            Wish don’t know were our “Equalizers” are.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Obama should be tried for Treason for funding so many of the world enemies, and the main one being the Iran deal that basically gave them everything needed to cause world chaos, and it will!

    1. Anouk says:

      Absolutely! What are they waiting for to arrest this Muslim traitor.

    2. Dee says:

      Yep , we all know who’s side of this war he is on !

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        And they’re leaving out one of the main players that has been involved in this game for Obama’s 8 years in office, HELLARY!!

        1. Askjrsk says:

          Crack cocaine HILLARY. She’s toppled over in the bushes somewhere. When we find her we can hang the left overs.

          1. Glenda Jordan says:

            An image flashed in my mind…LMAO! Too damn funny Askjrsk

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            All 4’s?

          3. Glenda Jordan says:

            Ha…not so sure ’bout 4 being it’s hil I’m thinking “creature feature”. I still am lol that “toppled over in the bushes somewhere” kills me

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            LOL, AJ does have a way with words, LOL creature features, heh!!

    3. Askjrsk says:

      Public hanging on the White House mall. Only FOX news can telecast, live. Should take all weekend of MEMORIAL DAY to hang him and his moles. Fly the flag Andrew army band playing “star spangled banner”. It’s not nice to defraud the American people. A real celebration.

  • chock says:

    Congress STOP holding hearings that never, ever get any results. STOP THIS SALE. Time for us to QUIT arming our enemies and wasting Americans money. You are elected to work for our country not for your donors or CoC.

  • chock says:

    Stop the madness. Government is out of control. State Dept is out of control, Dept of Education is out of control.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Actually, no it’s back under control. Just wait until next month!!! Chess game continues.

  • Mike Thomas says:

    Where was Congress on this matter? How can Obozzo give away money without Congress’s approval?

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Why. Yes why? The accuse PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP OF NOT BEING EFFECTIVE for eight years and more congress has been screwing us

  • Oldawg70 says:

    If Obama was involved it is/was unAmerican…period!

  • teaman says:

    Ahhhhhhh, this is Barry Sotoro’s home, where his was born. He feels obligated to help, but not obligated to tell the truth about this taxpayer expenditure. Just like he has never felt obligated to tell the truth about anything in his past. His obligation has been to lie, cheat, and steal form the American Taxpayer. There is nothing new here. Fact is, this is exactly why he picked Kerry the Traitor for the state department……by the way, it should be abolished. State department isn’t needed and it is one of the biggest money drains on our Nation.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      He thinks he’s beyond accountability. Lying got him far. Investigations of this fraudulent con are in order.

  • Not_Easily_Impressed says:

    That computes as almost $17,000,000 per plane. Is the plumbing made of gold?

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Must be going to run power to all the mud huts, time for up grading!

      1. Askjrsk says:

        Did it at the white house. Electrical cords and lines. The west wing looked like a Kenyan hut. The ape in High heels showing off into the White House out of Africa. Still bugs and viruses in the walls.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          And probably still has it’s monkey bars too!

          1. Askjrsk says:

            Banana tree..

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            They carried it, it still has to eat!

          3. Askjrsk says:

            Planted in OBAMA shorts?

    2. Dee says:

      No I’m sure some of the monies went in obummers pocket . What the hell did the obummers do to be leaving the White House multi millionaires ? My guess is many of their deals , like moocheles college buddy getting the contract for the failed obummer care site , and things like this deal with Iran Kenya and many others have padded their wallets .

      1. Askjrsk says:

        No hope for Michael now she whines. All that money for dresses for apes in heels and sewn in jock straps.

    3. Askjrsk says:

      Should come out of OBAMA ass.

  • mort_f says:

    Probably a whole lot more to this story.

    The IOMAX Archangel appears to be the 1950’s Fletcher FD-25 Defender on steroids. Bigger, more powerful engine, 2-seater, and of course more modern avionics. Over a dozen Defenders were built, and used in Cambodia and VietNam. Twenty million each would seem to be excessive, but expect more to the story than just the aircraft and spare parts kits. The Fletcher, and some similar aircraft, lost out to the OV-10 Bronco, a twin-turboprop a/c with far more capability. They were a class of a/c called COIN, counter insurgency.

    Researching L3 Technologies, could find nothing indicating airframe work, much about avionics and other aircraft electronics.

    Perhaps the congressman has a point. Whose money would Kenya be using?

    1. Askjrsk says:

      That’s my question.

  • itsfun says:

    Always follow the money trail and see where whose pocket the profits will go into.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Obamas, always. Unless CLINTON is in the line up.

    2. Worried Vet says:

      Yep follow the money and the votes legal or otherwise. Liberal only care about money,power and votes no matter how they get them. Legal or illegal, dead people, or no I.D. voters or from other states or more votes than people who are registered to vote in that country. All these things happen more so with national elections, and more so for democrats. They have been doing whatever it takes since before Al Capone’s time. Look at the history of NYC and Tammany hall. They gained power and have kept it since. They brainwashed many and have the largest illegal population in the country. It’s not rocket science folks why 80% voted for Hillary.

  • ArcticGrayling says:

    What a surprise!! The Nobel Peace Prize nigger boy in cahoots with his pals in the military industrial complex right up to the last day.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Obama is out to rape us in every way

    2. gvette says:

      LMAO…Ak will get mad at you for calling her hero a nigger!
