Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warrens (D-MA) son-in-law, with whom she is close, has troubling ties to the Iranian regime, according to a new book by Peter Schweizer.
The book, Profiles in Corruption, reveals progressive leaders little-known ties to corrupt businesses and governments and discusses the Massachusetts senator in a chapter.
The chapter details the business deals of Warrens son-in-law, Sushil Tyagi, who is married to her daughter, Amelia. Tyagi was born in India but moved to the United States, where he met Amelia while they were both pursuing MBAs at Wharton Business School.
Warren and Tyagi are close. She attended his brothers wedding in India, recounting it in her memoir. She and her husband Bruce Mann in December 2009 served as witnesses for a power of attorney corporate document he filed in India.
Since his marriage into the Warren family, Tyagi has been involved in a series of curiouseven troublingbusiness ventures around the world, Schweizer writes.
Tyagi runs Tricolor Films, and in 2008, produced a film called The Song of Sparrows, directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi.
The film was described as Majidis most religious and is about a man who is fired from his job on an ostrich farm, moves to the big city and becomes a motorcycle taxi driver, and soon becomes consumed with his passengers lives and is swept up in a world of greed. It is his family that help him restore his caring and generous nature, according to a film synopsis.
Tyagi was listed as the films sole producer on a New York Times page, in credits which have now been deleted. A look back at the pages archive revealed that the film was funded by the Iranian government agency that is overseen by Iranian propagandists.

ANOTHER Indian in the family ...
I wonder if she is as obnoxious as her mother.
Woops wrong tribe
Sometimes I think these kids do that crap(marry odd balls) just to pay back a crappy parental unit.
This one may have worked?
Does the SIL have high cheekbones?
I’m sure if the hardworking newshounds of the leftist media had gotten a whiff of this story’s scent 1-2 years ago they would have reported it in depth. Wouldn’t they? /s
It could have pushed their twice every hour Biden scandal investigative features off the news rotation. Right?/s
If anyone needs to reference that the work is indeed funded by the Iranian regime:
“The box office imperative that rules producers is why the support of government and its culture ministry is absolutely necessary for any kind of innovation, explains Majidi. In Iran we have organisations funding artistic cinema.”
These kids of Democrat politicians sure seem to do a lot of business with foreigners.
Thought we heard about this about 18 to 24 months ago.
I am going to have to buy this book.
I think the Patel Tribe worships the buffalo and excels as medicine men.
All roads lead to Iran.
ALL the leftists have filthy hands! No wonder they are trying to impeach the President.
i’m surprised that Ma let her daughter marry “the wrong kind of Indian”. :)
