‼️Trump Advisors Giuliani and Bolton (& Chao) Support MEK, the Iran Terrorist Organization

The MEK’s goal remains the overthrow of the Iranian regime
Giuliani supports the People's Mujahedin Org of Iran, a group of Islamic leftists who opposed Iran's late shah, but fell out with the Shi'ite clerics who took power after the 1979 revolution & later aligned itself with Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein
The U.S. government considered the People's Mujahedin Organization of Iran, a terrorist organization until 2012.
The MeK has paid Giuliani handsomely for years—$20k or more, and possibly a lot more—for brief appearances before the group and for lobbying to have it removed from the DOS list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO), which occurred in 2012.
Trump Advisors Giuliani and Bolton Support MEK, the Iran Terrorist Organization
Giuliani, tweeted that MEK is a viable alternative to the rule of the mullahs in Iran.
Never mind that MEK, short for Mojahedin-e Khalq, the terrorist organization that wants, with the help of the neocons, to rule Iran.
“Based on the facts and figures, due to the terrorist attacks committed by the MEK more than 16k people have been killed in Iran alone, not counting their atrocities against Iranian & Iraqi civilians during the Iran-Iraq war & the 1991 uprisings in Iraq.
Mujahedin-e Khalq has also conducted attacks against numerous Western targets, both in Europe, North America and elsewhere. In the early 1970s, MEK members killed several US soldiers and civilians working on defense projects in Tehran.
Not surprisingly, one of the most ardent Zionists to ever sit in Congress, Joe Lieberman, supports NCRI-cum-MEK and likely feeds at same MEK trough as Giuliani.
Giuliani Took Money From a Group That Killed Americans. Does Trump Care?
I was at State when we took the MeK off the terrorist list. But team Trump’s ties to the group still worry me, says Ambassador Daniel Benjamin
Among other MeK devotees are John Bolton, Newt Gingrich. Elaine Chao has also been on the MeK payroll, as has former Bush 43 security aide Fran Townsend, whose name was in play as a possible Trump secretary of DHS or director of national intelligence.😱
Saudi Nuke Deal:

Fran Townsend served on IP3’s board – emailed then-WH DHS advisor Thomas Bossert about the Saudi nuclear plan, including a white paper authored by Barrack, and a letter to the Saudi Arabian crown prince signed by advocates for the program
Those who embrace the group show an alarming lack of concern about its past and heedlessness about core principles of American counterterrorism policy.

In Giuliani’s case in particular, the hypocrisy is rather stunning.
“America’s mayor” 🙄 has presented himself as a centurion in the fight against “radical Islamic terrorism” #SureJan
🔑Giuliani appears to feel that gorging at the table of Islamo-Marxist terrorists who have murdered Americans is in no way unseemly.
7/18/19: Giuliani, just attended the annual gathering of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) at its unlikely base in Albania should raise flags for many reasons, not least of which are concerns for Albania’s troubled and fragile democracy.
Among the MeK’s many terrorist operations in the 1970s were bombings and shootings directed against American military personnel stationed in Iran—three U.S. colonels were killed during this period, as were three contractors.
Who is the Iranian group targeted by bombers & beloved of Trump allies?

Cult-like MeK was listed as terrorist group in US until 2012 – but its opposition to Tehran has attracted backing of John Bolton, Rudy Giuliani & others bent on regime change in Iran
If Albania is now unexpectedly drawn into one of today’s most dangerous geopolitical conflicts—the one pitting Iran against the United States, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states—the timing couldn’t be worse.
The country is in the midst of a full-blown political crisis that has at times turned violent and whose outcome is still uncertain. A member of NATO, Albania has also been trying unsuccessfully to join the European Union for years;
📌Albania’s current domestic turmoil makes that goal even more distant. To make matters worse, Albania’s infighting has turned it into an inviting target for malicious actors seeking to take advantage of a distracted, divided nation.

Sound familiar?
📌Giuliani, along with some other prominent figures, including former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman and British Conservative MP Matthew Offord, attended the annual “Free Iran” conference of the group known variously as the People’s Mojahedin Org of Iran/MEK.
A shadowy outfit committed to the overthrow of Iran’s theocratic regime, the MEK is often described as a cult & was classified by the DOS as a terrorist organization, b/4 Giuliani lobbying efforts. Now, some of its leading backers work for Trump & his adm.
This puts Albania in the middle of the Iran file.

📌Perhaps its biggest booster is John Bolton, Trump’s hawkish national security advisor, who wants the MEK to govern Iran.

🔑A deadline is looming for Albania: In October, the European Council will make a decision about formally launching accession talks with Albania.

🔑This is all about TeamTrump’s shadow foreign policy efforts in preventing Albania from joining the EU.
🔑The MEK’s goal remains the overthrow of the Iranian regime, although it now says it has sworn off violence.

🔑The group’s rise in visibility amid the Trump adm’s standoff with Iran could make Albania more vulnerable than ever to outside meddling.
🔑The potential for a new crisis in Europe and within NATO, centered on Albania of all places, is very real, thanks to TeamTrump’s efforts to undermine/weaken NATO & the EU.

#ShadowForeignPolicyCabal in contravention to US Foreign Policy.
Dana Rohrabacher, has received thousands of dollars in donations from supporters of the banned group this year alone.

Mike Rogers has been among the strongest supporters in Congress of delisting the group as a terrorist organization
2012: The US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, is expected to notify Congress that the MEK will be removed from the terrorism list in the coming days.
