There are only a few days before the May 12th deadline for the Trump administration to re-certify the faulty Iran nuclear deal. Many senior former Obama-era officials tied to the Joint Plan of Comprehensive Action (JCPOA) apparently feel personally invested in the deal’s continuation. That’s because Obama’s dubious foreign policy legacy, along with their own credibility, hangs in the balance.
Ultimately, it’s up to President Donald J. Trump and his foreign policy team to stay or withdraw. And while you might think everyone understands this, Secretary of State John Kerry clearly does not! We’re now learning of a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in New York and strategizing with them in ways that are clearly meant to limit Trump’s options.
This is treason of the highest order. Kerry has spent a long career in the highest levels of government with access to highly classified documents. Now, he’s using his influence to purposefully undermine the sitting President of the United States, ensuring failure in negotiations with a hostile regime that is quickly developing nuclear arms… if they don’t secretly have them already!
This is in violation of the Logan Act (18 U.S.C. 953), which states:
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.
Kerry knows exactly what he’s doing and is deliberately conspiring against his own country’s foreign policy interests.
That’s why Charles Hurt of the Washington Times wrote a piece entitled, “Throw John Kerry in jail.”
As Hurt opines:
Try to imagine for a second if some unelected diplomat from the Jimmy Carter administration had tried to interfere with President Reagan’s efforts to end the Cold War. Or if Condoleezza Rice had huddled with leaders from Iraq and Afghanistan to undermine President Obama’s policies in the region.
Of course, you cannot imagine that because it is unimaginable that even Jimmy Carter would have ever hired such a buffoon so utterly committed to hurting America.
Well, now that we are all so whipped up into such a frenzy over anyone who might be colluding with a foreign enemy to undermine the free will of the people and hijack the American political process, we should certainly take a hard look at Mr. Kerry.
And if he sets foot back at the United Nations are anywhere else Iran’s terror leaders can be found, Mr. Kerry should be arrested and thrown in jail.
As former New York City mayor and attorney to President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, asked on ABC’s “This Week”, why does no one “seems to care” about former secretary of state John Kerry “violating the Logan Act?”
However, has legal expert Alan Dershowitz explained on Fox News, while Kerry almost certainly violated the act, “the Logan Act [is a] dead letter.” He’s correct, as no one has been convicted of a violation in 219 years since it’s been on the books.
The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!
