President Trump: Sen. Murphy’s Meeting With Iran’s FM ‘Sounds like… a Violation of the Logan Act’
By Jennie Taer -February 18, 2020

In a rare moment of silence mid-presser when reporters stopped asking President Donald Trump questions Tuesday as he departed Washington for Los Angeles, Trump turned a question to the media asking about Sen. Chris Murphy’s, D-CT, meeting with Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

“I can’t believe so quiet all of a sudden. I saw that there’s this Senator Murphy met with the Iranians. Is that a fact? I just saw that on the way over. Is there anything that I should know because that sounds like to me a violation of the Logan Act,” Trump said.

He continued, “What happened with that? Did you read about Senator or hear about… Senator Murphy met with the Iranians. Well, they oughta find out about it. If it’s true, I don’t know. It just came out as I was leaving the car.”

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway first reported Monday that Murphy, along with several of his Democrat colleagues, met with the Iranian FM at last week’s Munich Security Conference.

Murphy defended himself on Twitter Tuesday: “It’s dangerous not to talk to adversaries, esp amidst a cycle of escalation” and that Congress has the power to “set foreign policy too.”

The conversation between Murphy and Zarif, according to Murphy’s Twitter thread, included Murphy “urging” Zarif ‘to control Iranian proxies in Iraq’ posing as threats to the U.S. and our allies, ‘pressing him to release American citizens being unlawfully detained in Iran,’ and ‘pushing him to end the Houthi blockage of humanitarian aid in Yemen.’

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”

..So, who is Sen Murphy..and what the deuce is he doing, trying to pretend that he is some kind of an ambassador?

The Saudis should have refused to speak with him, especially since he cannot do the work or make any deals as an ambassador.
