Former Secretary of State John Kerry has been conducting negotiations with Iranian mullahs in order to rescue Obama’s disastrous Iranian nuclear deal. Kerry initiated the discussions without the permission of the Trump administration.
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.
They’re not even pretending anymore. Had the roles been reversed, we would be subjected to continuous chants of “Treason!” and “Perfidy!” from the Democrats. Instead, the media has – get this – placed an embargo on the story, so this must never have happened. I’d like to think someone in the Trump administration would crack down on this nonsense, because the longer they take the high road, the longer Obama lackeys will continue to interfere with Trump’s presidency.
While I did not hear the interview – I find Hugh Hewitt a repulsive squish – apparently Kerry got zero pushback from Hewitt on his treachery, which does not surprise me in the least.
