Just imagine the Dem (and MSM) flip-out of a former George W. Bush secretary of state was working behind the scenes with a regime the U.S. considers the #1 state sponsor of terrorism to facilitate direct opposition to an Obama administration foreign policy initiative. That’s reportedly what John Kerry’s doing, and he’ll be toasted at liberal cocktail parties for it:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry has fielded dozens of private meetings and phone calls in recent months in an effort to preserve the Iran nuclear deal, as President Trump appears poised to withdraw from the pact.
The Boston Globe reported on Friday that Kerry, who helped broker the 2015 nuclear agreement, met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif at the United Nations in New York last month to discuss ways to salvage the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — the formal name for the Iran deal.
He has also met and spoken with a handful of European officials. Last month, he met with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, according to the Globe, and spoke by phone with Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s top foreign affairs official.
Kerry probably won’t find as much cooperation from the Iranians because this time all he has to offer is a pallet of Botox and some James Taylor tickets instead of sacks full of U.S. cash.
Will Kerry be the first person in U.S. history prosecuted under the Logan Act for being a private citizen acting on behalf of the U.S. in disputes with foreign governments? Not a chance — though if this is true he probably should do some time in the pen. Lurch wouldn’t do well in the yard, would he?
