The White House is claiming that the sending of $400 million to Iran as four Americans were being released from captivity was not a ransom, but just a coincidence and that they were two completely separate things.
Senator John McCain isn’t buying it:
In statement, @SenJohnMcCain says "it is clear that this payment was a ransom for Americans held hostage in Iran."
