What First Amendment? Obama Threatening Reporter for Daring to Report on Failing Iran Nuke Deal

Now Obama has threatened to arrest and prosecute a reporter who dares to report on how badly his Iran nuclear deal is going.

Washington Free Beacon reporter Adam Kredo has now been warned by Obama’s thugs that they aren’t allowed to cover a State Dept. presser despite that they are “registered” with press credentials.

Two State Department officials booted the Free Beacon from a room where Wendy Sherman, the undersecretary of state for political affairs, was talking to reporters, despite the Free Beacon’s being credentialed by the Austrian government for the ongoing Iranian nuclear talks.

Western observers present in Vienna for the talks linked the State Department’s behavior to jitters over media coverage revealing a still growing list of concessions being made to Iran by the Obama administration.

Melissa Turley, a State Department official, approached a Free Beacon reporter and demanded that he leave the room.

“You’re not registered with the U.S. press,” Turley said after being informed that the Free Beacon was attending the event.

“You have a press pass from the [European Union], not from me,” Turley said, after being informed that the Free Beacon was officially credentialed to cover the event.

Turley and her colleagues then threatened the reporter, instructing him to leave the room or be dealt with by “security.”

“I’m going to have to get security,” added another State Department official who came to assist Turley in ejecting the Free Beacon.

So, anyone who might be critical of Obama is thrown out in the streets and threatened with arrest and prosecution. So much for the Fist Amendment and a free press.
