A group of four Republican Senators sent a letter to the CEO and co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey on Thursday, urging him to remove the twitter accounts of Iran supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. The letter was led by Senator Ted Cruz and co-signed by Tom Cotton, Marsha Blackburn, and Marco Rubio. In a copy of the letter seen by The Jerusalem Post, the Senators were making the case that blocking Khamenei, Zarif, and other regime official accounts would be complying with Executive Order 13876 from June of 2019, which ordered blocking the property of Khamenei and the Iranian Supreme Leader’s Office, as well as people who acted on Khamenei’s behalf. Zarif was designated under the same executive order later in 2019.
