Trump Admin Walks Back Anti-MEK Memo

Betsy Swan, Erin Banco, Asawin Suebsaeng, The Daily Beast, January 14 2020:… Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani—who the MEK hired to help it get off the U.S. list of foreign terrorist groups and who recently called the group “my MEK people”—welcomed the reversal. “[The MEK] is very supportive of a free…Iraq. It’s run by a great woman who is committed to ending suppression of women and in a non-nuclear Iran,” the president’s personal lawyer messaged The Daily Beast. “They were of great assistance to us during [the] Iraq invasion and are supported by a very non-partisan group of American former and present public officials.” Trump Admin Walks Back Anti-MEK Memo
