Kirsters Baish| Before President Donald Trump announced his decision to ultimately pull out of the Obama administration era Iran Nuclear Deal, Obama’s former Secretary of State, John Kerry, had been conducting secret meetings alongside Iranian and European leaders in an attempt to undermine the White House and resurrect the deal.
Kerry’s secret meetings may actually have had an adverse effect on the deal in the end. Yup, those meetings could be a contributing factor to Trump’s decision to pull out of the deal.
The former Secretary of State received backlash from Americans for going over the heads of the Trump administration and conducting some seriously shady meetings that he had no right to conduct. On top of that, many Americans feel that Kerry was in direct violation of the Logan Act, which was specifically put into place in order to protect government decisions like this one.
On Saturday, Kerry was caught red handed in Paris… meeting again with the Iranians. The former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate was seen by a former Trump communications strategist in Paris, in a meeting with three Iranians. The former strategist, Jason Osbourne, saw the men inside a cafe.
“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?”
In an angry response, the Iranians confirmed that they had met with Kerry.
Fox News reports:
An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman confirmed the meetings after the Boston Globe broke the news, declaring, “We don’t see the U.S. just as Mr. Trump; the United States is not just the current ruling administration.” Think about what this means. Iran is a terrorist state responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in Iraq, whose leaders hold rallies where thousands chant “Death to America!” Kerry was working with a sworn enemy of the United States to try to undermine the foreign policy of the elected president of the United States.
In the past, we haven’t been so keen on Americans who colluded with the enemy. The meetings between Kerry and Iranian leaders were part of a formal lobbying campaign which included telephone calls to European Union leaders as well as meetings with the German and French Presidents. The Globe reports that during these meetings, Kerry spoke about “the details of sanctions and regional nuclear threats in both French and English.”
Jack Osborne posted the pictures of the men with whom Kerry allegedly met with.
After Obsborne posted the pictures to social media, Iranian human rights activists identified at least one of the men.
Heshmat Alavi is a human rights activist who writes for Forbes. Al Arabiya also explained that the regime is denying that Kamal Kharazi ever met with Kerry. This makes him even more suspicious about the meeting. Kerry has been involved with some secretive meetings in the past. He previously met with North Vietnamese officials in Paris during the time that Henry Kissinger was trying to negotiate with them.
Things aren’t looking good for Kerry and his secret meetings. It’s about time that he count his losses and get over the fact that the Iran Deal is dead.
