This could be HUGE, folks.
According to reports, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari warned Western officials that if they cease trade with Iran, the Iranian regime will release the names of all officials who received bribes during JCPOA negotiations.

Saturday, a statement was released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, showing their displeasure over the withdrawal of former President Barack H. Obama’s agreement to the regime, by President Donald J. Trump.
STATEMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN ON U.S. GOVERNMENT WITHDRAWAL FROM THE JOINT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OF ACTION
Full Statement HERE
“The unlawful withdrawal of the U.S. President from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (“JCPOA”) is but the final of long and persistent violations of this accord on the part of the United States, and especially since the coming into office of its new extremist Administration. .
Ever since his election campaign, Mr. Trump has declared his hatred of the JCPOA, an accord recognized as a victory of diplomacy by the international community. Since taking office, Mr. Trump has not only made explicit and official statements against the agreement in violation of its provisions but has in practice also failed to implement U.S. practical – and not merely formal commitments under the JCPOA.
None of the provisions or timeframes within the JCPOA, which were the subject of twelve years of negotiations, are negotiable in any manner. The U.S., which has through its meddling and erroneous policies ignited extremism, terrorism, destruction, war and child killing in our region, is in no position to issue any diktat about the Islamic Republic of Iran’s lawful presence within its own region nor its effective support for the peoples of Syria and Iraq in their endeavor to fight extremists.
As announced by the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran on 8 May, the Foreign Minister has been tasked with the duty of taking the necessary measures to obtain required guarantees from the remaining parties to the JCPOA as well as Iran’s other economic partners, and to immediately report the results of this mission.
Meanwhile, the President of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran has been tasked with taking all necessary steps in preparation for Iran to pursue industrial-scale enrichment without any restrictions, using the results of the latest research and development of Iran’s brave nuclear scientists.”

OVERLOOKED UNTIL NOW
Numerous Online reports of the threat to expose politicians and how much money they made surfaced:
H.J.Ansari Zarif’s senior advisor: “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make #IranDeal happen.”
That would be interesting.#JCPOA

Then again, Isreal might already know the list…
Friendly reminder: Not a single person who has said there is “nothing new" in Iran's secret Atomic Archive has seen the more than 100,000 documents and files that Israel obtained.

Very Complex situation:
Iran will stay even if Europeans leave #JCPOA. A.Khamenei has no other options anymore. That’s why I am saying he is in the same situation as The Naked King.
