‘TEHRAN JOHN’: GOP Senators Demand Answers Over Kerry’s Conversations with Iran About Israel

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.27.21

Republican Senators are calling for new investigations into former Secretary of State John Kerry’s relationship with Iran after leaked audio allegedly shows the top Obama official revealing covert Israeli military secrets to Tehran.

“This is something that deserves a Senate investigation. If it indeed is proven to be accurate, then John Kerry should seriously consider resignation,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“This is something that is serious. This is someone who has served our nation at very high levels, that had information, whether as a Senator or as Secretary of State and knew what was happening on the diplomatic and military front, to give that information to someone who is an adversary is something of tremendous concern to me,” she added.

From Fox News:

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed in recently leaked audio that John Kerry, when he was serving as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, informed him of more than 200 Israeli operations in Syria.

Kerry has previously been accused of colluding with Iranian leaders to undermine the Trump administration. Kerry is now a part of the Biden administration and has a seat on the National Security Council as the special presidential envoy for climate.

Kerry shocked Zarif by revealing that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria more than 200 times, according to leaked audio obtained by The New York Times and other outlets. 

Kerry faced criticism on Monday over Zarif’s claim.

“John Kerry was ratting out Israeli covert operations in Syria directly to the Iranian foreign minister. Let that sink in. Wow,” Noah Pollak of the foreign policy-focused Democratic Alliance Group wrote on Twitter.

Former special advisor for Iran at the State Department Gabriel Noronha weighed in on Zarif’s lasting political career, despite his differences with others in Iranian governnment.

“The main reason Zarif has survived as Foreign Minister for 8 years in Iran’s cutthroat political environment is that he serves as the ‘reasonable’ storefront to the world, protecting the more empowered radical elements of the regime from Western and press scrutiny,” Noronha said in a statement.

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.18

President Trump unloaded on former Secretary of State John Kerry Monday morning; accusing the senior Obama aide of engaging in “illegal shadow diplomacy” over his alleged involvement in trying to save the failing Iranian nuclear agreement.

The Commander-in-Chief called-out Kerry on social media after multiple media reports accused the former diplomat of working behind-the-scenes to help salvage Barack Obama’s signature international “achievement.”

“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come just days before he’s expected to announce his decision regarding the Iranian nuclear deal; calling on American allies like the UK and France to help “re-negotiate” a better agreement.

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

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.09.19

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.”
