It seems that Democratic candidate for president Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has gotten donations from the sworn enemy of the United States of America – the Islamic Republic of Iran. Senator Gillibrand also has received donations from Hassan Nemazee, a multimillionaire Iranian-American investment banker and convicted felon.
In an August 25, 2015 FrontPage Magazine column titled “Traitor Senators Took Money from Iran Lobby, Back Iran Nukes” Daniel Pipes reported:
Senator Markey has announced his support for the Iran deal that will let the terrorist regime inspect its own Parchin nuclear weapons research site, conduct uranium enrichment, build advanced centrifuges, buy ballistic missiles, fund terrorism and have a near zero breakout time to a nuclear bomb.

As did Senator Gillibrand, who had benefited from IAPAC [Iranian American Political Action Committee] money back when she first ran for senator and whose position on the deal should have come as no surprise.

Gillibrand had also picked up money from the Iran Lobby’s Hassan Nemazee. Namazee [sic] was Hillary’s national campaign finance director who had raised a fortune for both her and Kerry before pleading guilty to a fraud scheme encompassing hundreds of millions of dollars. Nemazee had been an IAPAC trustee and had helped set up the organization.
Senator Gillibrand has strange bed fellows. You see, besides the Iranian chants of “death to America”, Hassan Nemazee is currently in prison for bank fraud. OpenSecrets.org in March 24, 2010 reported:
HOW DOES THE DEFENDANT PLEAD? Guilty. Hassan Nemazee, a prominent donor to Democrats, pleaded guilty to three counts of bank fraud and a count of wire fraud, according to Colin Moynihan at the New York Times. In the past, the Capital Eye reported on Nemazee and his immediate family’s contributions to federal candidates and political action committees, including thousands of dollars since 1990 to the likes of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama. (Many of the politicos have vowed to return or donate their Nemazee-related contributions.) As part of the plea agreement, Nemazee will forfeit assets totaling $292 million and spend between 15 to nearly 20 years in prison, Moynihan reports.
As the presidential primaries move forward it seems that this candidate has some skeletons in her closet. The question is will these revelations hurt or help Senator Gillibrand’s chances for the nomination?
Can you say Iranian Collusion???
