In 2015, Senator Tom Cotton and other Senate Republicans sent a letter to the Supreme Leader of Iran warning him that Obama’s deal would not hold up unless it was approved by Congress.
That was obviously true.
Nonetheless the Democrats and their media outlets launched a furious hate campaign, falsely describing the letter as “unprecedented” and “unconstitutional”.
John Kerry, who has since conducted a freelance campaign to undermine the US, by repeatedly meeting with Iran’s Zarif, attacked it in an arrangement political stunt with none other than Senator Chris Murphy.
Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut set Kerry up to address the letter, asking him to explain its impact, and Kerry took five minutes answering the question while glancing at what appeared to be prepared remarks.
He told the panel that the Republican letter was a breach of “more than two centuries of precedent” and factually incorrect.
“It purports to tell the world that if you want to have any confidence in your dealings with America, they have to negotiate with 535 members of Congress,” Kerry said. “That is both untrue and a profoundly bad suggestion to make.”
There were also attacks from Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and the entire Dem machine.
Now Murphy, along with, allegedly, Kerry, are under fire for meeting with Zarif in order to undermine America’s position. Unlike the Cotton letter, their actions were covert and not above board. We don’t know what they actually spoke to Zarif about.
Nor did their activity follow the Cotton path of relying firmly on the constitutional separation of powers, but on their own radical agenda.
And yet the same media that attacked the Cotton letter, is defending Murphy’s rogue appeasement.
