Rubio to AG Barr: John Kerry MUST be investigated for his Iran interference

By Jon Dougherty

Former Secretary of State and U.S. Sen. John Kerry might really have stepped in it this time over his blatant interference with the Trump administration’s efforts to deal with Iran.

On Saturday, we reported that POTUS Donald Trump believes Kerry broke the law when he admitted he had engaged in secret talks with Iranian leaders aimed at preserving the so-called “nuclear deal” he and his former boss, President Obama, inked with the terrorist-supporting regime.

“That’s a violation of the Logan Act, and frankly he should be prosecuted on that, but my people don’t want to do anything on that,” POTUS told reporters at the White House.

“John Kerry violated the Logan Act, plain and simple,” the president added Thursday. “He shouldn’t be doing that.”

Many people believe the Logan Act, passed in the late 1700s and never used, would not stand up as constitutional. Maybe not; but, according to the language of the act — which is very short — if what Kerry did isn’t a violation, then there is no such thing.

And that’s what Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) wants Attorney General William Barr to find out.

As the Trump administration builds up forces in the Persian Gulf in response to intelligence indicating that Tehran may have been planning an attack against American forces, the senator from the Sunshine State sent a letter to Barr asking he investigate Kerry’s ties to Iran and find out just exactly what his secret talks were all about.

“The American people deserve to know that U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position. The Department of Justice should therefore make a determination on whether or not former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s recent actions related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran potentially violate the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act,” Rubio wrote.

Rubio noted that he previously made former AG Jeff Sessions aware of the situation.

In a September 18th letter to Sessions, Rubio noted Kerry’s public meetings and phone calls with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, European Union official Federica Mogherini and French President Emmanuel Macron — all of which took place long after Kerry left office.

“As you know, the Logan Act is a statute that imposes consequences against any U.S. citizen who, ‘without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States,'” Rubio wrote.

“And the Foreign Agents Registration Act, as described by the Justice Department, is ‘a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities.'”

Frankly, if what Kerry has done is no violation of either law Rubio cited, then no such violations exist and they ought to simply be taken off the books since no one’s going to enforce them.

    They let the POS send billons to iran because he supported their politics! He sent money to ISIS because he supported their politics! He never was even reprimanded! Why does this senator think they care what a has-been ex human does? Until they get to the point where they admit that the POS was the worst President ever, and the absolutely most corrupt evil creature to ever walk the halls of the WH, they aren’t going to do anything about him or killary!

  2. “That’s a violation of the Logan Act, and frankly he should be prosecuted on that, but my people don’t want to do anything on that,” POTUS told reporters at the White House. Ah yeah, that’s the problem. President Trump basically did the same thing with Hillary, and I wonder if he regrets doing that? President Trump still does not understand how D.C. operates. He is still the most naive person in D.C..

    Rubio waits 2 years to ask for this. We do not need Rubio’s advice. He should have asked Sessions 2 years ago. Rubio pretends to be for law & order, but he never criticizes the coup.
