Is Iran Quietly Infiltrating Congress Through Democrats Like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib?

Earlier this month, House Democrats sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, urging sanctions relief for Iran. Among other things, they criticized "the designation of Iran's Central Bank under terror authorities," arguing that "the efficacy of sanctions is questionable." An organization long described as a front group for the Iran regime sponsored the letter and has embedded staffers with many of the letter's supporters in Congress, including Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

“Is Iran’s regime quietly infiltrating Congress?” M. Hanif Jazayeri, news editor at Free Iran, asked on Twitter. He pointed out that many of these congresswomen hired current or former staffers with the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), an organization with many links to Iran's regime and which Iran state-media has described as "Iran's lobby" in the U.S.

Jazayeri added that NIAC "has a mole in Congress. [Samira Damavandi] is now a permanent Legislative Assistant in the Office of [Barbara Lee]. That could potentially give her (& the regime) access to US citizens' data."

Did some digging over the letter's authors. Found out @NIACouncil (Iran rgm's lobby in the US) has a mole in Congress. @samira_says is now a permanent Legislative Assistant in the Office of @RepBarbaraLee. That could potentially give her (& the regime) access to US citizens' data pic.twitter.com/lEk1k4bHTK

— M. Hanif Jazayeri (@HanifJazayeri) December 18, 2019 "It turns out the Senior Legislative Assistant to [Ilhan Omar] is [none] other than [Mahyar Sorour] who in July was a candidate for NIAC Action's leadership board," Jazayeri added. He then alleged that NIAC "is an arm of Iran's Intelligence Ministry." This connection makes sense, given Ilhan Omar's many anti-Israel statements and Iran's condemnations of Israel.

Sheeeyit. There are probably fewer demonicRATS who sympathize with America than there are who sympathize with Iran.

Nothing “quiet” about those two. I can’t imagine either will win a second term. One would think if an infiltration was in play they would get more that those two in there before they started showing their backside in such a manner.

Another good reason to let them move into ‘your’ neighborhood.

Problem is, you don’t want Group X into ‘your’ neighborhood and before you know it they have formed their OWN neighborhood and are now allowed representation in the town/city/county/state/country government.

The old camel nose under the tent trick..

Ya think? Kerry’s daughter is married to the son of a high ranking official in the Iranian government. Sons and daughters of American politicians are involved in the crimes of their fathers and mothers just like hunter and Pelosi’s son Paul. Why do you think these crazies are fighting so hard against Trump, he turned the kitchin light on and the roaches scattered for the dark

Need to reboot the Un-American Activities Committee and start hanging these traitororous bastards.
It’s not a difference of opinion.
Its treason against the United States.

FACT is that they serve no other purpose than that of our enemies, especially that of their ‘home countries’ in the middle-east.
