John Kerry admits conducting secret meetings with Iran behind Donald Trump’s back

September 12, 2018

  Back in May we learned that in a highly unusual move which might violate the Logan Actformer Secretary of State John Kerry was working behind the scenes to salvage his Iran deal. Here is more from this story:

“It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator,” said Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution. “Of course, former secretaries of state often remain quite engaged with foreign leaders, as they should, but it’s rarely so issue-specific, especially when they have just left office.”

As far as the Logan Act goes:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

  John Kerry is at it again, this time promoting his new book, admitting he is conducting shadow negotiations with Iran behind the President’s back. Here is more:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry disclosed that he has been conducting rogue diplomacy with top Iranian officials to salvage the landmark nuclear deal and push the Islamic Republic to negotiate its contested missile program, according to recent remarks.

Kerry, in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt to promote his new book, said that he has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif—the former secretary’s onetime negotiating partner—three or four times in recent months behind the Trump administration’s back.

“I think I’ve seen him three or four times,” Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration’s authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country’s fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.

  We now have more than speculation, we have John Kerry on the record admitting he is working behind the President’s back in an attempt to undermine current United States foreign policy and I think it is time he is made an example of.

      Doesn’t his selling out his President and his country fall under the “ You can discuss anything you damn well please with your family at the dinner table” clause? 🐀🐀🐀🐀🐀

    I am coming to believe that Sessions is a Swamp Creature. I’m holding off my final judgement until I see what he does when Mueller’s investigation is complete.

    During the course of the investigation, it has become clear that members of the FBI covered up Hillary’s criminality and attempted to interfere with Trump’s campaign. At the very least, there are severe ethical breaches involved and more likely there were illegal acts committed by members of the FBI.

    I’m willing to let Mueller run his course. When that’s done, I want to see the corrupt FBI and DOJ people crushed. If Sessions doesn’t do it, that will be proof of his participation in the Shadow Government supporting Obama and Hillary while screwing with Trump.

    If that is how it plays out, I will want to see Mr. Sessions prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law along with all the other smug bureaucrats left behind by Obama.

      I have no doubt at this point that Sessions is part of the problem in Washington. He has already recused himself from the investigation and I would be shocked if he doesn’t distance himself from Mueller’s report when it comes out.

      I think the most troubling aspect of the whole thing is that Kerry knows he can come right out and admit it because he understands nobody cares and nobody will do anything about it.
