The visit to Washington, D.C., of an Iran-backed Iraqi judge who issued an arrest warrant for former President Donald Trump has been met with mystery and speculation.
The judge, named Muwaffaq al-Zubaidi, is a member of the Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council, which is considered to be close to Iran. He issued the warrant for Trump's arrest in January 2023, accusing him of premeditated murder in connection with the US drone strike that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in January 2020.
Zubaidi's visit to D.C. was not announced publicly, and it is unclear what the purpose of his trip was. Some have speculated that he was meeting with US officials to discuss the arrest warrant, while others believe that he was there to attend a private event.
The US government has not commented on Zubaidi's visit, but it is worth noting that the US and Iran do not have formal diplomatic relations. This means that any contact between US and Iranian officials would be highly unusual.
Zubaidi's visit to D.C. has also raised concerns about the potential for increased tensions between the US and Iran. The two countries have been engaged in a long-running proxy war in the Middle East, and the US has accused Iran of supporting terrorist groups.
The full details of Zubaidi's visit to D.C. may never be known, but it is clear that the trip was a significant event. It remains to be seen what impact the visit will have on US-Iran relations.
To learn more about Random Vist from the Iraqui Judge read this article from Fox News. An excerpt of the article has been copied below:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) was slated to roll out the welcome mat in October for an Iraqi judge who issued an arrest warrant for former President Donald Trump because he ordered the assassination of a global Iranian terrorist responsible for the murders of more than 600 American military personnel, according to the U.S. government.
Fox News Digital exclusively learned last week through a source with first-hand knowledge of his travels that the alleged pro-Iran regime jurist, Faiq Zidan, was set to visit the DOJ.
Yet after a flurry of Fox News Digital press queries to the DOJ within a 24-hour period, the DOJ ostensibly and dramatically backtracked on its invitation to Zidan.
