Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) warned of a major national security issue at a time when tensions are escalating in the Middle East in the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
The Texas Republican appeared on “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News where he discussed the Biden regime’s relationship with Iran, a major sponsor of Islamist terrorism that he alleged had spies working within the U.S. government.
During his conversation with host Maria Bartiromo, the senator blasted the administration’s “flowing” of tens of billions of dollars to Iran which he said is used to fund Hamas, and the need to cut off the money that’s empowering terrorists

But an even bigger problem could be the agents of the ayatollah who are embedded within the nation’s bureaucracy.
“That is exactly right, Senator,” Bartiromo said. “And right now, we have Iranian sympathizers working within the Biden administration. And that is why I started asking you, what can you do about it? Because these atrocities are continuing and we have Robert Malley, apparently Biden’s chief negotiator in the Iran nuclear talks.”
“We have others that are still working in the administration that have been leading this effort to get the United States back into an Iran deal, leading this effort to, in fact, lower the sanctions, enabling Iran to generate billions in revenue. And what are they doing with the money? They are empowering these terrorists,” she added.
“Well, and what you just mentioned with Rob Malley remains one of the greatest national security scandals in our nation’s history. So, Rob Malley was Joe Biden’s chief negotiator for Iran,” Cruz responded. “He’s an incredible Iran sympathizer. He is an advocate, a passionate advocate for the disastrous Obama-Iran nuclear deal. But he also has extraordinarily bad judgment. He’s been fired. He’s had his security clearances stripped, which I want you to pause and think, just how bad does his conduct have to be to have his security clearances pulled by this ideological and radical White House?”
“But we now know also that, among other things, three of Rob Malley’s top advisers, his inner circle that he relied on, were Iranian operatives. They were recruited by the government of Iran. They were directed by the Iranian foreign minister. They reported to the Iranian foreign minister,” he continued.
“We have their emails now in which they discuss, one of them discusses with the foreign minister that his loyalties are with the government of Iran, and he is there to do whatever they direct, including making the message from within the federal government that there’s nothing wrong with Iran having a nuclear stockpile,” Cruz stated. “You literally had three Iranian spies working in senior positions directly around the U.S. government.”
“One of them, as far as we know, remains a chief of staff in the Department of Defense to this day with access to classified documents. And yet, the corporate media cannot be brought to mention that three Iranian spies were brought into senior levels of government with access to classified materials while working directly for Iran. The same Iran that just murdered 31 Americans and 1400 Israelis. The same Iran directed by an ayatollah who regularly leads mobs chanting ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel,” he said.
Cruz had previously brought attention to the alleged Iranian spies in the federal government on an episode of his podcast “The Verdict” last month.
In a post to X, formerly known as Twitter, the Lone Star State Republican urged people to catch the latest edition of his podcast “The Verdict” where he broke down the explosive details that were revealed in reports from two news outlets about the Biden regime officials linked to disgraced Iran envoy Robert Malley who recently had his security clearance revoked for murky reasons.
Today’s podcast is incredibly important. There is breaking news that three top officials linked to the Biden Iran team were getting instructions directly from the Iranians on critical national security decisions.

“There’s breaking news that the Biden administration had three operatives for Iran working in senior national security positions helping set the Biden administration’s policies on Iran,” he said. “These are individuals who were recruited by the ayatollah and the tyrannical government of Iran. They were working for Iran. They were in regular communications with the government of Iran asking what Iran wanted them to do and this is who the Biden administration put in critical decision-making roles on national security.”
“Rob Malley, Biden’s Special Envoy to Iran, appointed Iranian operatives to key positions in the US government,” Cruz wrote in a post to X last week. “Democrats have yet to allow the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to hold a hearing about this. This is disgraceful.”
