TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz has a very real chance to win the GOP primaries for the Pennsylvania Senate race, writes Josh Rogin afterward Washington Postbut Oz’s relationship with the Turkish government is under criticism, including from NBA players Enes Kanter Freedom.

In one op-ed published on WednesdayRogin noted that Senators “often have conflicts of interest, both business and personal,” but the potential “Senator Doctor Oz” would be unique, if elected, as “a senator.” He holds dual citizenship, serves in foreign armies, and remains deeply connected to the country in which he was born – a nation in which the notorious leader punishes those who surpass him.”

That Turkish leader is Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Freedom had a very personal reason to oppose his regime: his father was jailed by Erdoğan for his association with the exiled religious leader. Fethullah Gulen, who currently lives in Pennsylvania. It was overshadowed by Recent commentary on China’s human rights abuses, but Freedom has been a vocal critic of Erdoğan’s government for many years. That was the driving force behind his decision to pursue American citizenship and taking “Freedom” as his new last name.

“People need to understand that Dr. Oz is in Erdoğan’s pocket. And whatever Erdoğan wants, that’s what Dr. Oz will do,” Freedom told Rogin. “So if Dr. Oz gets into the Senate, like Erdoğan’s arm will be in the Senate.”

According to Rogin, the reason for Oz’s conflict of interest concerns lies beyond his dual U.S.-Turkish citizenship. In December, National rating compiled a long list of Oz’s business dealings with individuals and organizations deemed loyal to the Erdoğan regime.

Oz countered Freedom’s allegations, telling Rogin that he disagreed with Erdoğan on a number of issues and was not worried about appeasing him. According to his business practices, Oz has made them the norm for a prominent Turkish-American.

“I wasn’t even really involved in any of these matters until I decided to run for the Senate, and I have never politically engaged Turkey with anyone,” Oz said. what personality. I don’t even raise money for these organizations.”

Rogin describes that as “not exactly a satisfying answer.” While there is no evidence that Oz is any kind of agent of the Turkish government, the revelations about his upcoming mandatory candidacy will shed light on the nature of the business entanglements. his business, but concern remains if he “has business relationships that rely on good government relationships,” as Steven Cook, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, said. .
