@PeteButtigieg, the Iowa caucus "winner," is endorsed & advised by @vali_nasr, a known #Iran regime apologist/lobbyist who describes Qassem Soleimani as a “general” & “bureaucrat” rather than the terrorist he is.

Let’s get to know more about Vali Nasr.
@PeteButtigieg @vali_nasr 2)
Nasr teamed up with @AliVaez, another known Tehran apologist, to write an NYT piece desperately begging for negotiations with the US.

Vaez is a known protégé of former Iranian president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Vaez is also advising Buttigieg.

And here are Nasr's views about Iranian President @HassanRouhani & Foreign Minister @JZarif, claiming they enjoy support among the Iranian people.

@PeteButtigieg @vali_nasr @AliVaez @HassanRouhani @JZarif @RJBrodsky @NIACouncil 7)
And BTW, Nasr & Vaez can't tolerate anyone proving they are Iranian regime apologists/lobbyists.

Reminder about other members of Iran’s lobby enjoying close ties with certain DC politicians.

Meet @ManaKharrazi, a members of Tehran’s lobby in Washington, who has very close relations with certain DC politicians.

@PeteButtigieg @vali_nasr @AliVaez @HassanRouhani @JZarif @RJBrodsky @NIACouncil @ManaKharrazi 10)
Other certain DC politicians, including @brhodes, @ChrisMurphyCT, @RepDanKildee, @DonnaFEdwards & … enjoy close relations with Iran’s lobby NIAC.…
