DEEP STATE DEPT. President Trump Says John Kerry ‘Should be Prosecuted’ for Iran Involvement

President Trump slammed former Secretary of State John Kerry Thursday for his continued ties to Tehran; accusing the top Obama aide of violating the Logan Act that prohibits non-officials from interfering with foreign governments.

“You know John Kerry speaks to them a lot, and John Kerry tells them not to call. That’s a violation of the Logan Act, and frankly he should be prosecuted on that,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“But my people don’t want to do anything, only the Democrats do that kind of stuff. If it were the opposite way, they’d prosecute him under the Logan Act,” he said.

Kerry made global headlines last year when he admitted to continued contacts with Iranian officials, saying “What I have done is tried to elicit from him what Iran might be willing to do in order to change the dynamic in the Middle East for the better.”
