A last-minute diplomatic initiative by Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) aimed at easing pressure on Iran was poorly coordinated and ultimately ended in failure, according to multiple administration and congressional sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon and provided previously unknown details about the senator's rogue diplomacy with Tehran.
Did Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) not endorse a tweet mocking violence against a Republican senator and saying it was "no wonder" it happened? I ask because I distinctly remember writing about it, and seeing it appear on other conservative websites. I can't seem to find anything about it on the dozens of mainstream outlets that you'd think would be on top of something like that.
When it comes to foreign policy, Rand Paul is a charlatan with misguided, ill-informed, and even dangerous views—views that would undermine, if not completely derail, the Trump administration's strategy toward Iran.
With the Iranian economy teetering on the brink of collapse, senior Iranian officials and their allies in the former administration's self-described pro-Iran echo chamber have been scrambling to drive a wedge between President Donald Trump and his national security team.
