Former Secretary of State (and Obama crony) John Kerry is at it again meddling and attempting to subvert the president’s Iranian policy. In fact, he is attempting to secretly renegotiate the disastrous Iranian Nuclear Deal — which he and former President Obama patched together without congressional oversight.
The duo gave away everything while receiving no concessions in return from Iran, except to delay their ambitions of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.
Speaking with radio host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday, the former Secretary of State admitted meeting with former Iranian Minister Javad Zarif at least 3 or 4-times in a bid to “elicit from him what Iran might be willing to do in order to change the dynamic in the Middle East for the better.”
Kerry continued; “I’ve been very blunt to Foreign Minister Zarif. I told him, ‘Look, you guys need to recognize the world does not appreciate what’s happening with missiles, what’s happening with Hezbollah, what’s happening with Yemen.”
Kerry, you may recall pulled the same “shadow diplomacy” stunt back in early May and was sharply rebuked by the president.
“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!”
After the public tweet, the Commander-in-Chief had assumed that Kerry got his message loud and clear… apparently he did not.
Kerry is attempting to somehow work out an illegal side deal with the rogue régime by undermining the president’s Middle East initiative — forcing the régime to negotiate using crippling sanctions against the terrorist state, which will take full effect in November.
The sanctions are designed to bring Iran, the principal actor of “state-sponsored terrorism around the world, into compliance.
National Security Advisor John Bolton at the time of the president’s announcement to restart sanctions said, “The decision that the president signed today puts sanctions back in place that existed at the time of the deal.
Adding, “Now, what that means is that within the zone of economics covered by the sanctions, no new contracts are permitted.”
The Europeans have already threatened to continue doing business with Iran, which the President acknowledged stating, “We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanctions. Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.”
As for Kerry’s meddling, some have suggested that the State Department should once again look at the seldom referenced Logan Act, which states:
“Any citizen of the United States who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government, 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.”
The law has been in effect for more than 160-years, although no one has been prosecuted under it. Perhaps now is an excellent time to see if the law is indeed constitutional or not, by making Kerry a “test case.”
