John Kerry denies setting up a back-channel with Iran

June 6, 2019

 John Kerry might be feeling a little bit of heat after comments he made back in May of last year which he reaffirmed as late as last September where he admitted to conducting shadow diplomacy with Iran in order to save his Iran nuclear deal. In case you have not heard this story here is what he said back then:

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.

  This led to talk about a possible LOGAN Act violation and Marco Rubio asked Jeff Sessions to look into it, but of course we know that the do-nothing Attorney General did nothing. But recently the President has mentioned the possibility of having William Barr investigate these allegations and this might have John Kerry a little worried as I alluded to above because now the former Secretary of State seems to be changing his tune.

  Here is what he said in a recent interview:

Well,I haven’t talked to the Iranians substantively about any issue. I’ve only talked with one Iranian once between the decision that was made to pull out. I saw the foreign minister briefly for a few minutes at the Munich Security Conference. But I have not said a word, substantively, to what they ought to do or not do, publically like this, since the decision was made to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. From that forward, this is a public issue, and I don’t engage in any diplomacy.

No, I haven’t had any back-channel on that issue since the decision was made to move out. And before that, it was not a back-channel. I met publicly, as the New York Times editorial board did, as members of Congress did, as senators did and as other secretaries of state have done throughout history.

  It is never a good sign when one’s story starts to change and we know about John Kerry’s personal family ties to Iran. We can only hope William Barr will do his job and look into this.

    If he wasn’t doing back channel negotiating, why was he meeting the guy at all? Are we to believe they are just good buddies and wanted to have coffee?

    I’m very sure that Kerry and a number of his associates are all part of the shadow government that is holding Trump back from important things like negotiating trade agreements with China and disarmament agreements with North Korea.

    For evidence, I will note that in the weeks prior to Trump’s most recent and failed negotiation with North Korea, various calls for impeachment and accusations of many sorts made it look as if Trump was on the verge of being taken down. At that point Kim had no reason to believe that Trump had anything to offer. Why would he negotiate with a man soon to be powerless?

      That is a very interesting point on North Korea and I hadn’t thought of it before but it makes sense. Perhaps all this impeachment talk is nothing more than an attempt to delegitimize Trump so he cannot negotiate foreign policy.

    “… do nothing Sessions..” 🤣 my brother didn’t/doesn’t think much of him either 👎 haha
    So much going on behind the scenes that we’ve not privy to … nothing new, but this time its ‘suppose to be for our Good!’ Dis-information is necessary when dealing w/ “PsyCo Projectionist” who accuse others of the “very things they’re doing/have done!”
    ‘Lying, back-stabbing Kerry’ ~ yes, means no, so we know the UNworth of his accountability and allegiance (nefarious secret society that knocked off JFK – and want to do the same to this POTUS).
    There are still ‘dark C_A sites’ in Iran that need to be ‘removed’, like what happened in Syria, NK etc. Leaders, not affiliated w/ DS world Cabal want to be rid of them and are joining together for ‘the good of the world’ to rid out the demons & 🐍 possessed – is the “Plan”.
    Funny how all these ‘lying politicians’ want to make $$$ by writing their ‘☁︎ books’ to uphold their fake fronts ~ facades.
    “And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.” Ecc 3:16,17 God doesn’t need to read their books … He has his own “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Rev 20:12

      There is a time coming when all will be judged and it will not be pleasant for those who are storing up their treasures on earth instead of in heaven.
