Sean Penn: Iran Letter Was Potentially Criminal ‘Mutiny’

Actor and director Sean Penn argued that the letter to Iran by 47 Republican Senators was “mutiny” and “perhaps” criminal on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time.”

“When a young William Jefferson Clinton was at Oxford and protesting the Vietnam War, and then later ran for the President of the United States, they said that he was a traitor for protesting from foreign shores and the moment that that letter arrived in Tehran, they were protesting from foreign shores. And in fact — I think that where we should not be looking at this, is not in terms of treason, but mutiny and I think perhaps criminal mutiny” he stated.
