It was only a matter of time before this story got legs.
Earlier in the week, we reported that former Special Envoy Robert Malley had been put on leave for the mishandling of classified documents.
We had also reported that there were far more damaging reports that claimed he had figured out a way to funnel money to Iran.
Now he is being accused of helping to shift U.S. policy in Iran’s favor.
The Signs Are There
Numerous members of the current Biden administration are neck-deep with Iran.
Former Secretary of State and current Climate Envoy John Kerry comes to mind.
This coddling of Iran goes back to Obama’s administration, which Malley was also part of.
Tablet Magazine published a blistering report alleging that an Iranian spy ring, including Malley, had been busted.
The report stated, “The Biden administration’s now-suspended Iran envoy Robert Malley helped to fund, support, and direct an Iranian intelligence operation designed to influence the United States and allied governments, according to a trove of purloined Iranian government emails.”
The report referred to emails that had been reported in Semafor and Iran International.
It went on to say, “They showed that Malley had helped to infiltrate an Iranian agent of influence named Ariane Tabatabai into some of the most sensitive positions in the U.S. government—first at the State Department and now the Pentagon, where she has been serving as chief of staff for the assistant secretary of defense for special operations, Christopher Maier.”
All these policies were being implemented to shift U.S. policy in favor of Iran.
When you look back to what Obama had done with Iran, with Kerry holding talks with Iran during the election, and the moves by Biden to try to work with Iran again, it is hard not to take these allegations seriously.
I have stated many times that I did not understand this obsession by both the Obama and Biden administrations to be Iran’s friend, but now it is all starting to make sense.
