Logan Act, anyone?
Biden administration officials, including John Kerry and Robert Malley, had meetings with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif during the Trump administration that were orchestrated to undermine President Biden’s predecessor, a recent report from The Washington Times claims.
Zarif held meetings with Obama administration veterans who could return to power “to devise a political strategy to undermine the Trump administration” and usher in softer diplomacy between the U.S. and Iran, according to an unnamed former senior U.S. official cited by The Washington Times.
The official was discussing face-to-face meetings between Zarif and influential Democrats in 2017, 2018 and 2019, according to The Washington Times.
……Kerry has been open about the fact that he met with Zarif at least twice during the Trump administration, prompting Trump to say he should be prosecuted under the Logan Act because of the meetings.
A report alleging John Kerry may have colluded with Iran when meeting with its foreign minister during the Trump administration is drawing comparisons to the situation of retired Gen. Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to giving false statements to the FBI that included statements regarding his communications with a Russian ambassador.
Gen. Jack Keane, a retired four-star general and Fox News senior strategic analyst, told Fox News that the two instances deal with different issues but he can see why some would draw a correlation.
“In terms of what Secretary Kerry was doing and other members of the Biden administration, in my judgment is appalling and it’s reckless and significantly irresponsible,” Keane said in an interview.
“What we’re not used to is previous government officials actually colluding and talking to our enemies, and I emphasize enemy because that is who Iran really is. In the past 40 years, there is no nation-state that has killed more Americans than Iran,” he said.
Keane said there is a “considerable difference” between Flynn’s and Kerry’s situations, adding that “Gen. Flynn, as the incoming national security advisor, certainly talking to the Russian ambassador is part of his responsibility… which is normal protocol.”
The Democrats have a lengthy history of national security violations and violating the Logan Act, which prohibits citizens conferring with foreign governments against the interests of the United States.
Remember the Baghdad Democrats and the ‘good will’ trip Kucinich and Pelosi made to Syria in order to kiss Assad’s ass?
Dem U.S. Reps. Barbara Lee, Marcia Fudge, Mel Watt, Laura Richardson, and Bobby Rush snuggled with Castro.
In 1983, Ted Kennedy offered to work with the Soviets to undermine Ronald Reagan’s efforts to protect America and defeat communism. This goes way beyond political differences and disagreements. It’s sanctioned treason.
When Hillary was Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation peddled influence and favors in return for millions of dollars in foreign donations; some of which came from governments, organizations, and individuals with some pretty nasty track records on terrorism.
Obama commuted the sentence of traitorous little ratfuck Bradley Manning, who leaked 700,000 battlefield reports and diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. Apparently, that was okay with the Dems as well.
Not one fucking peep out of the Dems demanding investigations. I don’t want to hear a fucking word about General Flynn.
Intelligence officials have recordings of Flynn’s communications with foreign officials, but Hillary’s emails, not so much.
