    Obama State Department – ‘No Problem’ with Trump Transition Team Contacting Foreign O

    Obama State Department – ‘No Problem’ with Trump Transition Team Contacting Foreign Officials


    The Obama administration earlier this year said unequivocally that it did not have a problem with the Trump transition team reaching out to foreign officials, contrary to reports suggesting otherwise.

    On January 13, 2017, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, “this building doesn’t see anything necessarily inappropriate about contact between members of the incoming administration and foreign officials.”

    The remark came in response to a reporter’s question specifically about then-incoming National Security Adviser Ret. Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak.

    First of all, I'm pretty sure the Obama administration was not having many in their administration having "back door" meeting with the Russian's during their transition. You know the ones that people like Flynn, Don Jr, Manafort and Kushner didn't bother to report those meetings?? And now all of them are in legal trouble for it.

    Odd how that NEVER happened in the Obama administration

    And no matter how hard Breitbart tries, the Mueller investigation isn't going away.

    Maybe you should read deeper into the story. He was hired to work in the Øbama administration later on.

    Malley later joined the Obama administration. In 2015, he was appointed to lead the Middle East desk of the National Security Council.

    He was also named Obama’s special adviser regarding the Islamic State.
    Then there was the guy meeting with Iran.

    So @excalibur what's the excuse Trumpsters like yourself are trying to float now? It's not illegal if President Obama's Administration did it?

    I tell you what, lock the guy up you are talking about and everybody in the Trump Administration including Trump too.

    On Iran from the above link.

    Meanwhile, in August 2014, Michael Ledeen, a former consultant to the National Security Council and U.S. Defense Department, penned a column at PJ Media stating Obama opened a back-channel to Iran during the 2008 presidential campaign. Ledeen said the back channel went through retired Ambassador William G. Miller, who also led the 1979 negotiating mission during the Iran hostage crisis. Ladeen wrote that Miller confirmed his back-channel involvement to him.

    Ledeen wrote:

    The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
