Well, well, well … WTF?
Chris Murphy and other Democratic Senators held a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif last week, a high-level source reports. FWIW, his office is not responding to repeated requests for comment. https://t.co/hvLZ1gJbDC

Sounds like Senator Chris Murphy and other Democratic Senators held a secret meeting with Zarif last week. Imagine if Republicans were doing this …
From The Federalist:
Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jahad Zarif during the Munich Security Conference last week, according to a source briefed by the French delegation to the conference. Murphy’s office did not respond to repeated requests for comment by press time.
Notice his office is not responding on the matter.
Such a meeting would mean Murphy had done the type of secret coordination with foreign leaders to potentially undermine the U.S. government that he accused Trump officials of doing as they prepared for Trump’s administration. In February 2017, Murphy demanded investigations of National Security Advisor Mike Flynn because he had a phone call with his counterpart-to-be in Russia.
“Any effort to undermine our nation’s foreign policy – even during a transition period – may be illegal and must be taken seriously,” Murphy said in 2017 after anonymous leaks of Flynn’s phone call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kisylak were published. He also strongly criticized the open letter some Republican senators sent Iranian leaders during the Obama administration.
But it’s ok when Democrats do it.

And he criticized the killing of Qassem Soleimani, the world's most notorious terrorist, who also killed more than 600 American soldiers in Iraq. pic.twitter.com/wfCn7Giuxj

Did we mention this looks shady because yeah, it’s shady AF.
Who else besides Murphy? Please name names. We need to know who they are.

He may be the biggest mullah fan in the senate.

Politicians taking sides against America used to be a big thing. Maybe it will he again.

So, we can be confident if ever any of these dems who attended this secret meeting are up for a dem POTUS's cabinet position this will come up as a damning negative, a la Jeff Sessions shaking Russian ambassador's hand in public/brief meeting with witnesses in his office…

We probably need an investigation

Surely Senator Murphy knows this doesn’t look good, like at all, right?
