Report: Sen. Warren’s Son-In-Law Produced Iranian Propaganda Film
Democrat presidential primary candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) son-in-law has some very troubling connections. According to a new book written by New York Times Best Seller Peter Schweizer, her son-in-law whom she is very close with has disturbing ties with Iran.
In his new book, “Profiles in Corruption”, Warren’s has some ties to corrupt businesses and governments that many have not known about. Schweizer details how Warren’s son-in-law, Sushil Tyagi, who married her daughter, Amelia, has done some shady business deals.
According to Schweizer Tyagi runs Tricolor Films, and in 2008, produced a film called The Song of Sparrows, directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi, the film was described as Majidi’s “most religious.”
Tyagi was shown as the film’s sole producer on a New York Times page, in the credits but that page has now been removed. However, the internet is forever and Schweizer claims that looking back at the page’s archive showed the film was funded by the Iranian government agency that is responsible for Iranian propaganda.
The full credits of the film, for some reason, seem to also have been scrubbed from the internet. We obtained a copy by using the Wayback machine and made a startling discovery: the movie’s chief investors included none other than the social deputy of the State Welfare Organization (SWO) of Iran (SWO-“معاونت اجتماعی سازمان بهزیستی کشور”) as well as the Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran. (“سازمان فرهنگی و هنری شهرداری تهران”)
These two investors in the film might appear at first glance to be innocuous cultural organizations—but they are not. Both are funded and controlled by the Islamist Iranian government.
The Cultural and Artistic Organization of Tehran states: “This organization was founded in 1996 and [does] its activities under the supervision of a board of trustees composed of various cultural institutions such as IRIB and Islamic propaganda organization.”
Schweizer claims the credits of the movie show “prominent Iranian government institutions” to include a thank-you to the “Iranian Revolutionary Guards Air Force.”
