John Kerry foreign intrigue goes deeper
Guest editorial by Frank Holmes
While the media spent years focusing on former President Donald Trump’s alleged “collusion” with Russia, they missed the real foreign policy scandal: Obama-Biden officials collaborating with terrorists.
Not only did former Obama-Biden political appointees hold meetings with pro-terrorist powers, but now there’s hard proof that they attempted to sabotage President Trump’s foreign policy toward the world’s worst terror regime.
The new information proves that former Obama-Biden officials held a top-secret meeting with Iran behind President Trump’s back — and even his top officials say they didn’t know about it.
The explosive new revelations come from a secret document uncovered from an inquiry from a conservative legal group. They’re specific, they’re damning and they name names.
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), an organization associated with former Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow, obtained a formerly classified document by requesting it through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The findings were jarring.
The document says it’s the notes from “An Off-the-Record Conversation with Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif” — and it says they tried to conduct their own foreign policy.
The officials discussed everything with Zarif, an Iranian representative at the time. According to the ACLJ, the negotiations touched on “nuclear weapons, potential prisoner swaps, [the] Afghanistan withdrawal, and negotiations with the Taliban,” according to the ACLJ.
They officials soaked up anti-American rhetoric.
“You [the US] should take off the anti-Iran glasses,” says the memo, which is available online.
The memo talks about how Iran was collaborating with the Taliban — the organization that harbored the Sept. 11 terrorists and spent 20 years killing U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
And Iran claimed that, unlike filthy American imperialists, “The reason that Iran is more successful in the region than the US and Saudi Arabia is that we don’t impose our will on anyone. In Iraq, we try to build consensus.”
In real life, Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism around the world, and it sent Iranian troops and militias into Iraq — again, clashing with U.S. soldiers and costing them their limbs or their lives.
The Obama-Biden officials didn’t appear to care, according to the memo: They were there to tell Iran to wait out the Trump administration and look for a better deal once they were back in office.
The document — and the meeting — are “a big deal for sure,” according to Trump administration Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
According to Pompeo, the Obama officials told the Iranian mullahs to expect another nuclear deal after Trump’s exit from the White House.
If this is true, then the Democrats undermining the president by conducting their own private foreign policy. Secretary Pompeo “was not aware of these meetings while leading the State Department,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.
We already knew that Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry had met with global officials to try to salvage their awful Iran deal.
Pompeo said the Democrats promised to some concessions to the ayatollah, in the form of money from the American taxpayer.
Now that these officials have returned to office — with John Kerry serving as a special climate change official in the Biden administration — they’re keeping their word.
Biden is promising to pay the mullahs all the money they want in exchange for oil. After Biden ended leases on federal land, he’s begging Iran and Venezuela to make up the difference, while the U.S. economy suffers through some form of the Green New Deal.
The newly public document suggests that one of the people involved had to be either former Secretary of State John Kerry, Biden’s current Special Representative to Iran Robert Malley or Obama’s Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. After all, the ACLJ asked the State Department to declassify the document on the condition that one of these people had been involved.
We know Kerry tried to negotiate with Iran privately to save the nuclear deal; this looks like more of the Deep State undercutting the will of the people to protect their terrorist friends overseas.
“This is exactly what we were fighting… The arrogance. The indecency. The hatred of Israel,” Pompeo said.
“It’s galling. It’s dangerous. And it’s un-American.”
It could also be illegal. “Whoever the memo is referring to, we do know they could be in violation of a very serious law called the Logan Act, which says as a private citizen you cannot attempt to undercut the official Pompeo,” said the ACLJ.
Let’s see Kerry negotiate his way out of these charges.
