It remains a mystery, at least on the Hill, why Robert Malley, the Biden administration’s special envoy for Iran, is being investigated.
“Congress deserves to know exactly why the U.S. special envoy to Iran had his security clearance suspended, was then suspended from his position, and now, according to news reports, is being investigated by the FBI,” Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, stated.
“This is a person whose mission is to negotiate with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” McCaul added. “Nothing could be more serious than this.”
“Malley has a history of going off the rails in his diplomatic efforts,” Adam Kredo reported in the Washington Free Beacon. “In 2008, he was fired from the Obama campaign for conducting unauthorized talks with the Iranian-backed terror group Hamas.”
“The department’s failure to inform Congress of this matter demonstrates at best a lack of candor, and at worst represents deliberate and potentially unlawful misinformation,” McCaul wrote to the State Department last month.
