In early January the United States killed General Qassim Soleimani, a top commander of Iran’s al-Quds Force, in an airstrike at Baghdad’s International Airport. The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces. Seven people were reportedly killed in the airstrike.
Following the death of Commander Soleimani Democrat Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) lashed out at President Trump for assassinating the Iranian al-Quds terrorist leader who was responsible for the deaths and maiming of HUNDREDS of US soldiers.
It soon became apparent why Murphy was sooo upset with Soleimani’s death.
Senator Murphy has a history of supporting Iran’s mullahs.
Murphy is a routine speaker at the NIAC Council, the regime’s lobby house in the US.
In fact, Trita Parsi, the regime’s top activist at NIAC, has praised Senator Murphy for his support of NIAC’s efforts.
NIAC’s Trita Parsi praised Sen. Murphy in 2015 for being a “hero” of the Iran deal.
It would be interesting to discover Senator Murphy’s financial links to this group and others.
This past weekend Senator Murphy was caught meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif in a secret meeting in Munich.
Another clear Logan Act violator….who will likely be ignored by most media, not even be reprimanded by his peers, much less punished.
The Federalist reported:
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. In February 2017, Murphy demanded investigations of National Security Advisor Mike Flynn because he had a phone call with his counterpart-to-be in Russia.
.@JZarif to inimitable @bbclysedoucet at #MSC202: “If the Iraqis retaliate against the killing by the US of their own people and general, it’s not our responsibility.” That is not how the Trump administration is going to see it… pic.twitter.com/dSPBtf71yZ
