Marco Rubio asks Jeff Sessions to investigate John Kerry for possible Logan Act violation

September 18, 2018

  Last week while promoting his new book John Kerry made the stunning revelation that he was secretly meeting with Iran in order to salvage his Iran nuclear deal, which is possibly a violation of the Logan Act. Just as stunning as that revelation was is the silence which has come from the Republicans with the exception of Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo–especially from the man who is allegedly the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.

  That changed a bit today as, according to this story, Marco Rubio has asked the Department of Injustice to look into John Kerry to see if he has violated Federal law. Here is more: 

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., requested that the Justice Department look into whether former Secretary of State John Kerry violated federal laws by meeting with the Iranian foreign minister, a move already blasted by top Trump administration officials.

In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday obtained exclusively by Fox News, Rubio said that Americans “deserve to know that U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position.” He encouraged the department to determine whether Kerry violated the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The Logan Act prohibits unauthorized personnel to negotiate with a foreign government in relation to any disputes with the U.S., whereas the Foreign Agents Registration Act is a statute that requires persons or companies acting on behalf of foreign governments, political parties or individuals to disclose details of their interactions.

  Jeff Sessions–whom you would think would not need to be prodded into action on this but would act on his own–still could not be reached for comment…

    How the hell did Rubio manage to get Waldo Sessions’ address in order to deliver a letter to him? Who’s the leaker?
