Iranian influence in US from the State Department to Congress

An Endowment for the Middle East (EMET) Webinar

Several weeks ago, a report by former Wall Street Journal reporter Jay Solomon published by the Semafor website revealed that senior U.S. government officials and former top advisers were part of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s “Iran Experts Initiative.”

The article was based on materials gathered by London-based Iran International, including emails showing government officials’ participation in this secret Iranian government influence scheme. A scheme that may have impacted everything from sanctions relief to negotiations leading to the recent release by the Biden administration of a $6 billion ransom payment to Iran.

One thing is clear: Iranian influence peddlers, sympathizers and potential spies have no place in the U.S. government. They threaten our national security and that of our allies. In the face of the recent Hamas war, this could not be clearer. Gabriel Noronha, who has been working on these issues for many years, joins us to discuss this and related matters.
