Former Secretary of State John Kerry was discovered secretly meeting with Iranian officials to discuss the fallout of the nuclear deal, which Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) called a violation of the Logan Act. Many others have agreed with Nunes’ assessment especially in light of the fictional charges levied against Michael Flynn.
And Kerry’s treachery against America and her people continues as Kerry was spotted dining with several Iranian regime officials in Paris on Saturday.
Jason Osborne, a former senior advisor to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, tweeted of Kerry’s potentially treasonous antics – So John Kerry just left a meeting @ L’Avenue in Paris w/3 Iranians. A friend was sitting next to their table and heard JK blasting @realDonaldTrump. The Iranians had a 5 person security detail and left in diplomatic vehicles. Is he FARA registered?” alluding to the charges levied against Flynn using the Logan Act as a basis.

One of the officials was later identified as Kamal Kharzai, Iranian politician, and diplomat, as well as Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs from August 1997 until 2005.
The progressive left routinely expresses their outrage over claims of collusion with a foreign power claiming it undermines our “American democracy.” Yet they do not stop to consider that America is not indeed a democracy but rather a republic. So partisan are these accusations that it seems when their very own is guilty of the same, they fail to accuse or even hold accountable.
So where is the outrage over revelations that former secretary of state John Kerry held not one but two secret meetings with Iran’s foreign minister to strategize over how to undermine President Donald Trump’s plans to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal?

So Kerry cannot deny his participation. Instead, Kerry has been defiant in his involvement, attempting to justify it. Yet Kerry actively colluded with a sworn enemy of the United States to try to undermine the foreign policy of the elected president of the United States. Iran is a known terrorist state responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in Iraq with leadership holding rallies where thousands screaming – “D***h to America!”

From the Washington Free Beacon:
A hardline Iranian organization is reportedly offering a $100,000 reward to any person who bombs the newly opened U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, according to a translation of Farsi language reports.
A group known as the Iranian Justice Seeker Student Movement is reported to have disseminated posters calling for an attack on the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, which has been opposed by Palestinian and Iranian officials as an affront to the holy city.
“The Student Justice Movement will support anybody who destroy the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem,” the poster states in Farsi, Arabic, and English, according to an independent translation of the propaganda poster provided to the Free Beacon.
There will be a “$100,000 dollar prize for the person who destroys the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem,” the poster states.
The call for an attack on the new embassy is just the latest escalation by hostile Islamic states and leaders who have lashed out at the United States and President Donald Trump for making good on a campaign promise to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s declared capital city of Jerusalem.
News of the bomb threat was first reported by the University Student News Network, a regional Farsi-language site that aggregates relevant news briefs.
“The Student Movement for Justice declared, ‘Whoever bombs the embassy’s building will receive a $100,000 award,'” the report states. “It is necessary to mention that the steps by Trump to transfer the US Embassy to Holy Qods [Jerusalem] has led to the anger and hatred of Muslims and liberators throughout the world.'”
Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes, told the Washington Free Beacon that terrorism of this nature is embedded in the Iranian regime’s hardline stance.
“Unfortunately, terrorism directed toward diplomats and embassies has become a central pillar of the Islamic Republic’s culture,” Rubin said. “Terrorism is lionized in Iranian schools. This bounty is more the rule than the exception. To blame Washington or Jerusalem is to blame the victim and give terrorists a veto over U.S. policy.”
Behnam Ben Taleblu, an research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, described the poster as repulsive and blamed the Iranian ruling regime for fostering such an attitude.
‘This is nothing short of an invitation to a heinous act of an international terror by a student group that looks up to the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror—the Islamic Republic of Iran,’ he said.”
Yes, if we had only just allowed the Iranians and their various terror cells and their subsidiaries to have nuclear weaponry. While the leftist progressive mainstream media attempts to sell the idea that every single Middle Eastern country other than Israel is some sort of poor, downtrodden, misunderstood nation of underdogs and martyrs for peace. Except many of these factions have quite literally been warring for centuries and some of them wish for nothing more than the utter genocide and extinction of all things Jewish. When someone wants to deny your very right to exist it becomes rather hard to find common ground.
“Kerry’s meetings with Iran’s leaders were not isolated incidents, but part of a formal lobbying campaign that included phone calls with European Union leaders and meetings with the presidents of Germany and France in which, the Globe reports, he discussed ‘the details of sanctions and regional nuclear threats in both French and English.’
On Twitter, Trump suggested that Kerry might have violated the Logan Act, which says: ‘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.’ In fact, no one has been prosecuted under the Logan Act in more than 160 years, and most conservative legal scholars consider it unconstitutional.
Although what Kerry did was probably not illegal, it was deeply hypocritical. Recall that in 2015, when Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and 46 other Republicans wrote to Iran’s leaders informing them of the Senate’s constitutional role in approving international agreements, Kerry was incensed. “My reaction to the letter was utter disbelief,” he said at the time. “To write leaders in the middle of a negotiation … is quite stunning … [and] ignores more than two centuries of precedent in the conduct of American foreign policy,” Kerry said, adding that he would never have interfered in that way “no matter what the issue and no matter who was president.” What a difference three years make.
Cotton is a sitting United States senator. The Senate has a constitutional role in foreign policy. Kerry is a private citizen.
He has a constitutional role in nothing.”
So Kerry conspires with known terrorists against the United States and her citizens. If that isn’t a violation of the Logan Act or even treason then I don’t know what is.
