Mollie Hemingway: Chris Murphy and Other Democrat Senators Had a Secret Meeting With Iran's Foreign Minister Last Week

Murphy has repeatedly demanded Logan Act investigations into any Republican meeting with a foreign leader.

Mollie Hemingway:

Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad 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.

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 Trumpís 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 nationís foreign policy -- even during a transition period -- may be illegal and must be taken seriously," Murphy said in 2017 after anonymous leaks of Flynnís 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 administrationís campaign for a nuclear agreement.

However, Murphy has previously defended rogue meetings if they're done by Democrats such as former Secretary of State John Kerry.

Open an special counsel investigation.

Chris Murphy has now responded -- on Twitter. He would not give Hemingway the response.

Apparently the LOGAN ACT is not in play when it comes to Democrats.


The Constitution says that the President is the sole foreign policy maker of the US. The Senate's role is specified, and is limited to voting on treaties and voting to declare war.

But as Twitchy says: Show us the transcripts. Murphy did his best to keep this meeting a secret, and he wants to claim that the only thing he discussed with Iranians is standard pablum and boilerplate? He was afraid his advice to the Iranians to stand down on terrorism would become public?

Doubt it!
