Are Democrats Coordinating with the “Iran Lobby”

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

After the latest Iranian attack against American military personnel in Iraq, from which they fortunately emerged unscathed, President Trump imposed additional economic sanctions on the mullahs’ regime, rather than violent punishment.

His Democratic opponents nonetheless continued their criticism of his Iran policy that is often indistinguishable from Iranian propaganda. At a minimum, the not-very-Loyal Opposition’s party-line is being seized upon by Tehran’s mouthpieces to support theirs. So will congressional votes to restrict presidential action on Iran.

The question occurs: Are Democrats actually coordinating with Iran? The Washington Free Beacon reports that some – including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – are working with the National American Iranian Council, an organization founded by Trita Parsi, whom the ayatollahs’ own media have called part of the “Iran Lobby.”

Keep that in mind the next time you hear Iranian propaganda coming from Democratic leaders, and vice-versa.
