#Iran’s regime is increasing its measures aimed at interfering in U.S. elections.

@DNI_Ratcliffe shed light on this important matter.

Americans should be aware that Iran is pursuing this initiative specifically through its US-based lobby arm @NIACouncil.
In this thread, I will be presenting how Iran:

-has infiltrated Congressional offices through its lobbyists

-is using its clout to provide Tehran’s regime access to U.S. citizens’ information

-is spreading pro-Iran misinformation & undermining the U.S. democratic process
NIAC is a lobby group in the U.S. pushing Iran’s talking points.

Listen to this Iranian regime insider explain that NIAC was established by @JZarif, the foreign minister of Iran.
@tparsi is the official founder of NIAC in the U.S.

Listen to how Trita Parsi parrots Zarif’s talking points.
Here we see @NegarMortazavi & @YasmineTaeb, the ladies leading this rally. They are both former NIAC members & thus linked to Iran's regime.

All Americans should be informed that Iran's lobbyists have established ties with American figures.
Here is proof that Mortazavi & Taeb are former members of Iran's lobby arm NIAC.

Mortazavi is also very fond of Iran's chief apologist Zarif.

Note: Iran's officials only allow pictures with Iranians who are their utmost loyalists.
Listen to Mortazavi in a TV interview boast about having close ties with Team Biden.

I recommend watching the video to the end.
Listen to how Mortazavi justifies the crimes of #Iran's regime.

This is the hallmark of Iran's network of apologists & lobbyists in the West.
An important piece on NIAC by @michaeljohnsjr.

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) frequently echoes Tehran’s rhetoric in redirecting blame at the U.S. for Iranian aggression and malfeasance.
NIAC was born from a 1999 white paper written by @tparsi based on holding “seminars in lobbying for Iranian-American youth & intern opportunities in Washington D.C.” & reducing “the taboo of working for a new approach on Iran.”
While @Princeton University says Mousavian had a “distinguished career,” it is worth noting that he was Iran’s ambassador in Germany overlooking the September 1992 Mykonos restaurant killing of four Iranian Kurdish dissidents.
Iran's lobbyists found their way into the Obama/Biden White House.

@saharnow of NIAC worked on the Iran nuclear deal & had very close access to Obama himself.

If Nowrouzzadeh or anyone denies she was a NIAC member, her business card proves they’re lying.
“NIAC’s most accomplished alum is Sahar Nowrouzzadeh, who is now National Security Council director for Iran in the Obama admin & the top US official for Iran policy, bringing together various departments working on US strategy toward [Iran].”
Iran apologists/lobbyists have established ties with Sen. Sanders.

One individual is @hodakatebi, a regular at events held by NIAC.

Katebi had called for burning the U.S. flag after the killing of Qassem Soleimani, the world’s number one terrorist.
Iran lobbyists have established ties with Sen. Warren.
Warren voiced gratitude for an endorsement from NIAC member @rezaaslan.

Aslan has close relations with Iran’s regime & also makes disgusting remarks on Twitter.
A look at some of Aslan’s latest tweets.

For the record, Aslan was forced to delete that last tweet.

However, these are quite telling of his character.
“Murphy is a frequent speaker at [NIAC], a lobbying group with alleged links to the Islamic Republic of Iran,” via The Federalist.

He also criticized the killing of Soleimani, the world's most notorious terrorist, who also killed more than 600 US soldiers in Iraq.
@brhodes also established remarkably close relations with NIAC & NIAC founder Trita Parsi.
NIAC members have also gained foothold in the House of Representatives.

@mahyarsorour is the Senior Legislative Assistant to Rep. @IlhanMN.

Sorour was a candidate for NIAC Action's leadership board back in July 2019.
@ethanazad is a staff member of @RepRashida who handles a "broad legislative portfolio, helping Tlaib’s office on foreign affairs… and government oversight."
@samira_says was a permanent Legislative Assistant in the Office of then @RepBarbaraLee.

That could have potentially given her (and the regime in Iran) access to U.S. citizens' data.
Damning evidence: Airfare provided by NIAC for two Iran intel agents, Massoud Khodabandeh & his wife Ann Singleton, to come to the US in 2008.

Library of Congress issued a Pentagon-requested report describing the two as recruited by Iran's intel (MOIS) in the 1990s.
"... we have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails to intimidate voters, incite social unrest & damage President Trump. You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours or you may have even been one of the recipients of those emails."
Thanks for taking the time to read this thread.

I believe all Americans should be informed about the threats posed by Iran’s regime & its lobby arm NIAC in these U.S. elections.

If you agree, please kindly share this thread to spread the word.

Thanks again & best!
