On July 5, our colleague Joe Messina wrote about the several dozen people with connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton who died, many under mysterious circumstances. Some, like former White House counselor Vince Foster, died just before they were to testify against or blow the whistle on the Clintons.
Last week, another individual with ties to Hillary Clinton met his untimely end. That person was Shahram Amiri, a nuclear scientist and one-time U.S. spy, who was executed by the Iranis for treason. Clinton didn’t arrange Amiri’s death, but she might as well have. She discussed his activities in emails kept on her now-infamous private server, which may have been hacked by Iran.
According to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who was a guest on “Face the Nation” earlier today:
[I]n the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman.
That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe.
Amiri, who had left Iran in 2009, claimed upon his return on June 7, 2010 that he’d been kidnapped by the CIA during a pilgrimage to Mecca and held captive in Tucson, where he had been subject to torture and psychological pressure. Upon landing in his homeland, he was given a hero’s welcome.
But Clinton subsequently indicated that Amiri had arrived in the U.S. “of his own free will and he is free to go. These are decisions that are his alone to make.” At that point, Amiri was taken into custody. He was hanged on Aug. 10.
A spokesman for the Iranian judiciary is quoted as having said:
This person who had access to the country’s secret and classified information had been linked to our hostile and No. 1 enemy, America, the Great Satan. He provided the enemy with vital and secret information of the country.
