Cotton: Clinton discussed executed Iranian scientist on email

Rick Moran: Did Clinton emails doom Iranian nuke scientist to death?
. . . "While US State Department officials apparently burned Amiri by leaking his status as a defector/spy, Clinton's emails made it clear he was returning to Iran to spy for the US. Did that fact seal Amiri's fate?
"That the poorly disguised identity of Amiri appeared in a supposedly unclassified email is a major breach of security - especially since the US was arranging his return to Tehran. "
Washington Examiner  "Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.
Iranian nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri, who was accused of giving information to the CIA, has been executed
" 'I'm not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman," he said on "Face the Nation." Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran's nuclear program.

"The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe." . . .
The UK Mail supports Cotton's charge: Clinton's private server held emails about Iranian nuclear 'spy' who was executed today: Hillary's aides discussed their scientist ‘friend’ and his 'problematic' decision to return home
"Richard Morningstar, a former State Department special envoy for Eurasian energy wrote to Clinton: 'We should recognize his concerns and frame it in terms of a misunderstanding with no malevolent intent and that we will make sure there is no recurrence.

"'Our friend has to be given a way out. Our person won't be able to do anything anyway. If he has to leave so be it.'

"Senior adviser Jake Sullivan sent another email about Amiri on July 12, 2010." . . .


Politico, however makes no direct reference to emails calling Amiri "friend".

CNN Politics:  . . . "The just-released emails, which were sent to Clinton back in 2010, seem to support what State Department sources have long maintained: that Amiri was not abducted, but a defector and paid informant who changed his mind about helping the U.S.
    "The emails also appear to offer insight into the department's plans to get Amiri back to Iran safely." . . .
