Radio and televison host Mark Levin wants to know “what in the hell” Sen. Dianne Feinstein was doing talking to Iran’s Foreign Minister – and why the media ignored it.
The conservative commentator, author and host of LevinTV unloaded on the California Democrat during his radio show Friday, demanding to know why she was allegedly on the phone Thursday with Javad Zarif, the “foreign minister to an enemy state.”

“He’s the foreign minister to an enemy state that seeks to attack American military personnel in the Middle East, that seeks to put nuclear warheads on ICBMs so they can reach the United States. It is a terrorist regime, an Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran, that has killed Americans, that funds Hezbollah to kill Americans, that funds Hamas to kill, and is a threat to our national security, obviously,” Levin said.
Politico’s Jake Sherman had tweeted Thursday that Feinstein “was walking around the capitol with her iPhone in hand” displaying Zarif’s contact page. He reported that a few moments later, the Democrat released a statement indicating that the foreign minister did not want war with the U.S.

“What in the hell is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee doing talking on an iPhone around the Capitol to Javad Zarif?” Levin asked.
“What is it with these Democrats fronting for this Islamo-Nazi regime that wants to kill Americans and Jews in Israel? You’ve got Frankenfeinstein, you’ve got … John Kerry — or the real Frankenstein — giving aid and comfort to the enemy! It’s not enough that they released $150 billion to this regime; now they’re giving it advice, against the president of the United States,” he added, referring to John Kerry, Secretary of State during Obama’s second term, who met with Iranian officials last year.
“You want to talk about the Logan Act? You want to talk about collusion?” Levin went on.
President Trump has slammed Kerry repeatedly for his “Shadow Diplomacy” and suggested to reporters Thursday that Kerry be prosecuted under the Logan Act for breaking the law, something that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has already acted upon.

“What I would like to see with Iran, I would like to see them call me. You know John Kerry speaks to them a lot, and John Kerry tells them not to call. That’s a violation of the Logan Act, and frankly he should be prosecuted on that,” Trump said, as tensions between the U.S. and Iran continue to escalate.
The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!

Feinstein reportedly called on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to reach out to Zarif following her phone call Thursday.
“War isn’t necessary to solve a problem when both sides want a solution. I urge Secretary Pompeo to reach out to Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who I know doesn’t want to see a conflict with the United States,” she said in the statement, according to Politico.
Feinstein’s office wouldn’t discuss who she does or doesn’t talk to, they said
Of course, if Feinstein is in touch with @JZarif — as her cell phone and statement seemed to indicate — that would be fascinating.

“So now she’s a mouthpiece for the enemy,” Levin continued on his radio show.
Dianne Feinstein called the foreign minister of Iran a “reasonable man” today
He is responsible for Iran’s funding of terror cells
He oversees the rampant anti-Americanism throughout Iran
This is the Democrat Party. They support anyone if it means opposing President trump

“A mouthpiece for the enemy. She sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee. For years she had a driver who was a communist spy for Red China. Her husband has done business — a lot of business — with Communist China. They’ve made a lot of money doing business with Communist China. … Anybody going to subpoena her about her phone call? Anybody going to subpoena her about her driver? Anybody going to subpoena her husband about his business dealings with Red China?” Levin demanded.
“Of course not. It all goes one way. Anybody going to subpoena her and question her about her contacts with the foreign minister of Iran and any other contacts she may have had, undermining this administration?” he added. “Can you imagine? It’d be like WWII: You have FDR, and then you have senators contacting the Third Reich!”
Levin slammed the left’s hypocrisy and the media’s obedient silence in essentially ignoring the senator’s actions.
“Don Trump Jr. has a meeting with a couple of Russians, meeting turns out to nothing, and it’s the crime of the century. Except Mueller says it’s not, but the media says it is,” he said. “You have Dianne Frankenfeinstein on her damn cell phone with the foreign minister of Iran! Anybody want to know what they discussed? ‘No, no, that’s Dianne, we like her.'”
