Traitor Senators Took Money from Iran Lobby, Back Iran Nukes
Front Page ^ | August 25, 2015 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 05/15/2018 4:08:06 PM PDT by detective

Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb.

There was no surprise there.

Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign.

After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the nuke sellout.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Iran Lobby’s third Dem senator, didn’t bother playing coy like her colleagues. She came out for the deal a while back even though she only got half the IAPAC cash that Franken and Markey received.

As did Senator Gillibrand, who had benefited from IAPAC money back when she first ran for senator and whose position on the deal should have come as no surprise.

The article is from August 2015 but it is very relevant today. It names some of the U.S. politicians who took bribes from Iran to give away billions of dollars and end sanctions.

In the title they are called traitors. I think that is accurate.

and has anything been done about these damned traitors selling out America for some pitifully, filthy lucre? The Iranians are reportedly still busy developing/building a large arsenal of nuclear bombs and ICBMs to deliver them

(note that ICBMs are not required for Iran to bomb any of its neighbors, Iran already has the rockets for that anyway)

Iran’s Moslem dictators threaten to nuke USA cities as their FIRST “Great Satan” targeting priority, including as I recall NYC, WashDC (maybe not much of a less, that), Boston, Chicago, SF, LA, and I forget one or two more are on their First Hits List

For every dollar given to their campaigns, there were several more in paper bags left in their freezers.

"In the title they are called traitors. I think that is accurate."

Traitors? With far too few exceptions, 'traitor' is now just a synonym for "Congress Critter".

Hey, it's what they do, take money in return for votes and support. Taking money from Iran and other countries instead of just from fat cats in the US is just proof they've gotten on the Globalist, Free Traitor, bandwagon like almost all US corporations have.

Even a good many of those who talk the talk as if they're in the America First camp only run their mouth to hide the fact that they vote against putting America First every chance they get.

Believe Gillibrand is up for re-election, isn't she? Would love to know if Claire McCaskill is on the Iranian payroll. Thought all or nearly all of the Dems voted in favor of the treaty-not-a-treaty deal.

Any Republicans? Charlie Wilson was a Democrat who drank and was quite a randy fella. Back then there was no viagra. Hard to get it hard on booze.

Claire McCaskill did support the deal, although she said “It's not perfect.” http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/blunt-is-one-of-biggest-supporters-of-trump-s-withdrawal/article_bb94b92e-c7cf-53ac-8e56-9cf162ba4cca.html

All Republicans opposed. Claire justified her support by saying the world supported the agreement with the exception of Israel. DUH! The U.S. did NOT support the deal from the beginning. Hawley needs to pond her with this!

Corker may as well have outed himself a while ago. As for McCornhole... if he got money from Iran, it was probably all in renminbi.

I defy anyone to find a lower POS in the US Senate than Ed Markey of MA. This pond scum (apologizes to the honest pond scum out there) doesn’t seem to have control of his own seem to have his own conscience.

Out of 100 Senators, he’s somewhere around 325 in intellect.

Sad thing is that he represents ME in Washington and that I find more allegiance with Lizzy Warren. How about that?

*spit*

..”..nothing gets done about treason anymore.....”

.....because if one tries to investigate he gets inundated with lawsuits, obfuscation, accusations of every kind and endless counter suits by a system rife with subversion.

IMHO

Nothing on the grand master Muslim criminal in the White House? Why does Barck Hussein escape notice? He arranged sending our tax dollars in cash to these mass murderers.

Right, all republicans opposed giving tax dollars to mass murderers. That’s a Rat party trait led by the looter in chief, Barack Hussein, also a demrat. Why attack the rat party opponents?
