State Dept. official reassigned after conservative media criticism: report
A top State Department official who helped shape the Iran nuclear deal has reportedly been reassigned following criticism from conservative media outlets that questioned her loyalty to President Trump’s administration.
Sahar Nowrouzzadeh’s yearlong assignment to the secretary of State’s policy planning team was cut short earlier this month following critical stories from the Conservative Review and Breitbart News, Politico reported Friday.
A State Department official told Politico that Nowrouzzadeh did not want to be reassigned, and multiple officials in the State Department believe the media attacks were to blame.
“It puts people on edge,” an unnamed State Department official told Politico…
Another official said that the conservative media attacks were of concern to those high up in Trump’s administration.
Frankly, anyone who was involved in the creation of the Iran nuclear deal probably should have been let go. It’s an awful deal and the Obama administration lied to the American people during its creation.
It’s hard to see how this is woman’s reassignment is a sad story.
