Iran seems to have friends in high places

Beyond the Rhetoric

It has been rumored that former Secretary of State John Kerry has been having frequent conversations with the foreign minister of Iran giving advice on how to deal with our new administration. That is treason if true. But what is worse was evidence that Senator Diane Feinstein was cavorting with the Iranians. Here is the scoop:

“He’s the foreign minister to an enemy state that seeks to attack American military personnel in the Middle East, that seeks to put nuclear warheads on ECBMs so they can reach the United States. It is a terrorist regime, an Islamic-Nazi regime in Tehran, that has killed Americans, that funds Hezbollah to kill Americans, that funds Hamas to kill and is a threat to our national security, obviously” Levin said “What in the hell is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee doing talking on an iPhone around the Capitol to Javad Zarif.”

It gets worse. Sen. Feinstein’s husband’s business is Tutor Perini. A construction, engineering firm that does an incredible amount of business in the Middle East and China. It also has a reputation for racist procurement policies with minority subcontractors.

It is so ironic. Obama’s administration had a confident that was Iranian borne and questionable about playing a level field when it comes to Israel. Trump now has a person in a similar position, Jared Kushner, who is Jewish and the son-in-law of the President and is much involved in the Middle East.

Iran has its hooks in places like never before. A serious amount of investigation is required. The Trump Administration should stop any further activity and call out to Iran: “Check Mate”!
