Bet you weren't expecting this one! Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren's son-in-law has allegedly produced a film that was funded by Iran's Islamic regime, details revealed in a book about government corruption by Peter Schweizer.
The book is titled "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite" and it completely reveals and exposes numerous incidents of corruption tied to political figures.
In this case, the man's name is Sushil Tyagi and he married Elizabeth Warren's daughter, Amelia. Based on the report by Breitbart, and covered by WND, but he's apparently "been involved in a series of curious – even troubling – business ventures around the world" since joining the Warren family" according to Schweizer.
One of those incidents is a movie produced by his company, Tricolor Films, who produced "The Song of Sparrows" back in 2008. The movie was directed by Majid Majidi, an Iranian filmmaker.
Here's the catch, and this is where it gets really suspicious.
Schweizer notes in his book that the full credits of the film have been scrubbed from the internet. He obtained a copy by using the Wayback machine and discovered the chief investors were the social deputy of the State Welfare Organization of Iran as well as the Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran.
Both are funded and controlled by the mullah-led regime.
But wait, there's more!
The Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran's web page such as the anti-Semitic Quds Day on the last day of Ramadan. It states that for Quds Day – Quds is the name for Jerusalem used to convey Islamic ownership – a "new plan for the destruction of Israel will be launched."
"Quds Day typically features massive crowds organized by the Iranian government chanting 'death to America' and burning effigies, with full media coverage," Schweizer points out.
The credits for Tyagi's "The Song of Sparrows" read like a "who's who of prominent Iranian government institutions."
They include a thank-you to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force.
To make things even more interesting, the film was released back when United Stats and Iran were having quite a few tense moments. The United States government accused Iran of participating or assisting in having five American soldiers killed in Iraq.
Then-Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had repeatedly declared the U.S. a "satanic power," warning Israel would disappear from the face of the earth.
If that isn't tense, then what is?
And how does Elizabeth Warren feel about her son-in-law being tied to this?
