Kerry Admits to Secret Nuke Negotiations

His book-tour confession fits in with his lifelong habit of undermining American interests.

If anything was made clear by John Kerry’s recently released autobiography, it’s this observation from political analyst Eli Lake: “What John Kerry is most fond of … is John Kerry.” But we already knew that. One thing that displays this haughty self-importance is his habit of taking on foreign-policy negotiations without the authority to do so. From his treasonous negotiations with the North Vietnamese in 1971 while still an officer in the U.S. Navy to private negotiations with the Palestinians last January, Kerry thinks his foreign policy trumps America’s.

Now, as part of his self-promoting book tour, Kerry admitted to meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif “three or four times” since leaving office, in part to discuss his disastrous nuclear deal with the mullahs. These meetings were reported in May, but Kerry’s admission confirms them. He said his advice to Iran was simple: Wait out Donald Trump’s presidency. “I think everybody in the world is talking about waiting out President Trump,” he smugly huffed.

Investor’s Business Daily reiterates a point we’ve made before:

This is a plain violation of the Logan Act, the 199-year-old law that forbids private American citizens from conducting foreign policy without authorization.

No one has ever been prosecuted under the law, largely because it was never really intended for that. It was meant to send a message to private citizens to butt out when it comes to diplomacy and foreign affairs.

But Kerry’s interference comes as close to being prosecutable under the Logan Act as anything we’ve seen. Not only did he circumvent a lawfully elected government’s official channels, but he did so with the intent of undoing a specific policy, namely the U.S. sanctions on Iran for violating its nuclear agreements.

Democrats certainly went after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn for supposedly violating the Logan Act, which, admittedly, is what Republican Sen. Tom Cotton called a “stupid, dead-letter law.” All the same, we now only hear crickets from the Demo peanut gallery.

Kerry is a traitor who lied in congressional testimony about his fellow American servicemen after his tour in Vietnam. He should be prosecuted for treason, not just for running afoul of the Logan Act with his talks with the Palestinians and Iranians. Like his former boss, Barack Obama, he’s a globalist first — a man who considers America no better than any other nation. His contempt for our country is contemptible, and it’s high time he paid a real price for it.
