Democratic Senators held secret meeting with Iran

February 17, 2020

  You may recall that in 2018, when he was promoting his new book, John Kerry admitted he was conducting secret meetings with Iran in an attempt to salvage his Iran nuclear deal. Well, it looks like other Democratic Senators are following his lead because according to this story Chris Murphy and other Democratic Senators recently held a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

  Here is more:

Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during the Munich Security Conference last week, according to a source briefed by the French delegation to the conference. Murphy’s office did not respond to repeated requests for comment by press time.

Such a meeting would mean Murphy had done the type of secret coordination with foreign leaders to potentially undermine the U.S. government that he accused Trump officials of doing as they prepared for Trump’s administration. 

  A textbook case of projection, accusing others of doing what you are in fact guilty of. More still:

“Unless it was authorized by the president or secretary of state, conducting independent foreign policy sends mixed signals to our adversaries,” said Christian Whiton, former State Department senior advisor in the Trump and George W. Bush administrations. “It seems very unpalatable. If we want to talk to Iranians, they know how to reach us and they don’t need to go through an intermediary.”

A State Department official who spoke on background said that the State Department was not aware of any side meetings with Iranian officials that Murphy was engaged in.

Both Murphy and Zarif spoke publicly during a two-hour session on Middle East policy, with Murphy and Zarif both fiercely criticizing U.S. policy.

  We do not know what was discussed behind closed doors but we do know that Chris Murphy is opposed to Donald Trump’s policy in Iran, that he and Zarif both publicly attacked the President’s policy, and that the State Department had no knowledge of the meeting.

  It really is not all that hard to figure out what the topic of conversation was or how it might have gone, but we will leave that type of “parody” up to Adam Schiff because I am sure he will be very interested in finding out if Chris Murphy and the others were colluding with a foreign government to undermine United States policy…

  And of course there is the Logan Act:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both

    Beyond belief, but believable. Like children, they keep pushing to see how far they can go until they’re stopped. Add to that the lie they have been pushing since the beginning that the President isn’t “legitimate” frees them to do what they want. “Who watches the watchers?”

      I know how you feel, at this point nothing that we would have thought was unbelievable is unbelievable any more. They just keep pushing the envelope and nothing happens to them. Until we fight back and make an example of them it is just going to get worse.

    And our good friend our neighbor to the North just had Iran to visit with the usual bowing to them. Canada will sell out just like always.

      I am afraid you are right. We stand alone on this, every other country is too scared to act.
