Iranian nuclear scientist, Shahram Amiri, was executed in Iran for treason and it was revealed that Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails may have been involved.
Despite Clinton’s constant lies, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that Clinton was careless, sent classified emails and that hostile actors could have hacked her private server that she chose to conduct official business on.
On Sunday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark) spoke about the connection between Amiri’s execution and Clinton’s emails on “Face the Nation:”
“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman.”
The Washington Times Reported:
Iran confirmed on Sunday that Amiri had been hanged for treason. He was convicted of spying charges in a death sentence case that was upheld on appeal, according to the Associated Press.
“This person who had access to the country’s secret and classified information had been linked to our hostile and No. 1 enemy, America, the Great Satan” a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said. “He provided the enemy with vital and secret information of the country.”
His body was returned to his mother with rope marks around the neck.”
The Times also reported that Amiri was given millions of dollars to provide the U.S. with information about Iran’s nuclear program, whereas Amiri claimed he was held against his will by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia – most likely because of fears over execution if Iran discovered he had worked with the United States, which happened anyway.
Nine days before Amiri was supposed to turn up in Iran in 2010, this email referencing Amiri from Richard Morningstar, a former State Department special envoy for Eurasian Energy, was forwarded to Clinton by senior adviser Jake Sullivan, according to the Associated Press:
“We have a diplomatic, ‘psychological’ issue, not a legal one. Our friend has to be given a way out. Our person won’t be able to do anything anyway. If he has to leave so be it.”
According to the Associated Press, Amiri left the U.S. without the $5 million he was given, and may have gone back home due to threats leveled against his family by Iranian authorities.
Also in Clinton’s emails is this from Sullivan on July 12, 2010:
“The gentleman … has apparently gone to his country’s interests section because he is unhappy with how much time it has taken to facilitate his departure. This could lead to problematic news stories in the next 24 hours.”
Cotton said the following about these emails:
“That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe.”
This doesn’t look good for Clinton. Although she appears to be above the law, hopefully voters realize that Clinton is unfit for the presidency and cannot be trusted.
The presence of these emails on her server, coupled with Iran’s execution of Amiri, makes one reasonably wonder if Iran had access to her server or if another hostile actor gained access and relayed it to Iran.
It is quite the coincidence if Iran did not gain access to this information and, frankly, even if they didn’t, the fact that these emails were on her server at all is criminal.
It has been said many times over, but at the very least she should be disqualified for her presidency.
