Report: Sen. Chris Murphy Held Secret Meeting With Iran’s FM

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) and other Democratic senators held a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jahad Zarif during the Munich Security Conference last week, according to a report by Mollie Hemingway in The Federalist.

Zarif is a longtime government official in Iran and has previously served as Chief Nuclear Negotiator. Despite being educated in the U.S., he has been accused of chanting ‘Death to America.’¬†Earlier this year, the United States denied Zarif a visa that would have enabled him to attend a U.N. Security Council meeting in New York City.

Senator Murphy is a regular speaker at the National Iranian American Council, a lobbying group with alleged links to the Islamic Republic of Iran.
