A serious shift of events has taken place since Peter Schweizer’s latest book Profiles of Corruption came out.
Schweizer’s book is a journalistic tell-all about progressive leaders’ unknown ties to corrupt businesses and governments… and one entire chapter is dedicated to Elizabeth Warren’s ties to Iran.
In Warren’s chapter, it is revealed that Sushil Tyagi – her son-in-law – is responsible for the link.
Tyagi, who is married to Warren’s daughter Amelia, was born in India and moved to the US and met his wife while they were both pursuing MBA’s ar Wharton Business School, reported Breitbart.
According to the report, Warren is rather close with her son-in-law as she attended his brother’s wedding in India, and both her and her husband served as witnesses for a power of attorney corporate document filed in December 2009 in India.
But Schweizer noted in his book that since Tyagi has been with the Warren family he “has been involved in a series of curious – even troubling – business ventures around the world.
One example he spoke about was his job with Tricolor Films which produced a 2008 film directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi, called The Song of Sparrows.
Majidi’s film is known to be his “most religious.” But that’s not where the problem lies…
In a New York Times report, Tyagi was listed as the film’s credits as it’s sole producer… only that has been deleted. In a look at the page’s archive, you’ll notice the film was actually funded by Iranian propagandists.
Schweizer explains, “The full credits of the film, for some reason, seem to also have been scrubbed from the internet. We obtained a copy by using the Wayback machine and made a startling discovery: the movie’s chief investors included none other than the social deputy of the State Welfare Organization (SWO) of Iran (SWO-“معاونت اجتماعی سازمان بهزیستی کشور”) as well as the Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran. (“سازمان فرهنگی و هنری شهرداری تهران”)”
While to anyone these may just appear to be cultural organizations, they’re actually both funded and controlled by the Islamist Iranian government according to the report.
Another interesting part is that in the lost credits, Tyagi’s list is basically a “who’s who of prominent Iranian government institutions,” including a shout out to the “Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force.”
But more importantly, this all took place during a time where the tensions between Iran and the US were at an all-time high, back when Iran was accused of killing five American soldiers based in Iraq, which led then Iranian President to threaten the US.
