Iran and Bribes

Interesting wrinkle to President Trump cancelling the "Iran Deal" - the spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry threatened to release the names of all officials who accepted bribes to help arrange the Iran Deal in the first place. He hopes this threat will spur Europeans and Americans who took money (probably out of those palates of cash Obama delivered) to save the existing previous deal but it could have the opposite effect.

Imagine once the Korea situation is resolved (one way or another) that President Trump tells Iran that a precursor to opening up any new negotiations would be the release of those names of western officials who took bribes. And imagine if Trump tells them that if it is found that the list provided was either incomplete or incorrect then negotiations would immediately end or any agreement reached would become null and void.

That would make for some fun.
