New details of meetings with Iran prompt calls for Kerry to face Logan Act probe

A new report is creating additional scrutiny surrounding the Obama administration’s efforts at promoting diplomacy with Iran.

According to Fox News, critics are now questioning why former Secretary of State John Kerry was not prosecuted for secretive meetings with Iranian officials allegedly designed to “undermine” former President Donald Trump.

“Back channel” communications

Kerry was among the Obama-era architects of a controversial nuclear-weapons deal with Iran who met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif during the Trump administration, as reported by The Washington Times.

The Times reported that the group used the “back channel” in an “apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations” after the Trump administration pulled out of the nuclear agreement in 2018.

At least one such meeting occurred in 2019 and involved former Obama adviser Robert Malley.

According to the new report, Obama critics are revisiting an alleged double standard in the investigation of suspected Logan Act violations. The statute, which prevents unauthorized communications between American individuals and foreign entities, had not been used to indict a U.S. citizen in roughly 200 years but proved instrumental in the investigation into communications involving former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The Obama administration began focusing on Flynn during the transition period after the 2016 election amid reports of his conversations with a Russian ambassador. He eventually pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents, later reversing his plea when evidence surfaced that suggested he was set up by federal investigators.

“They’d prosecute him”

Flynn’s defenders have argued that there was nothing untoward about his conversations given his impending national security role in the Trump administration.

For Kerry, however, evidence indicates that he was attempting to frustrate the foreign policy efforts of a sitting president.

Of course, Trump brought up the Logan Act in 2019 as new details emerged regarding what he dubbed a “witch hunt” investigation into allegations that Russia interfered on his campaign’s behalf during the 2016 election.

The then-president asserted that “only the Democrats” engage in the type of talks attributed to Kerry, adding that if “it were the opposite way, they’d prosecute him under the Logan Act,” according to Fox.

Retired U.S. Army Gen. Jack Keane also weighed in, declaring in a recent interview: “In terms of what Secretary Kerry was doing and other members of the Biden administration, in my judgment is appalling and it’s reckless and significantly irresponsible.”

  1. This law is and has been on the been on the books for years prosecute John Kerry he is a traitor, I am SICK of dems thinking laws do not apply to them…

    1. John Kerry thinks he is above the law, he is rich, old so he feels he is not going to be prosecuted. He is an old Dem. So he isn’t worried, we will wait and see.

      1. THE CRIMNAL COMMIE DemoRATS, THINK THEY ARE ALL ABOVE LAW. UNTIL ALL THESE TRAITORS & CRIMINALS ARE ACTUALLY SENTENCE TO JAIL, THEY WILL CONTINUE BEING CRIMINALS.
        HILLARY IS STILL WALKING FREE, AND ALL THOSE COMMUNIST DEMORATS THAT WERE INVOLVED IN THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION CIRCUS ARE WALKING FREE.
        THOSE ANTI-AMERICANS THAT CONTINUE TO VOTE FOR THE CRIMINAL LIAR DEMORATS ARE LIVING ON ANOTHER PLANET. MAYBE SOMEDAY,THEY WILL WAKE UP FROM LA LA LAND, DO RESEACH, SEEK THE TRUTH ON THE POLITICIANS THEY VOTE FOR TO RUN THE COUNTRY….IT MAYBE TOO LATE, THE WAY AMERICA IS BEING DESTROYED NOW BY PUPPET, DEMENTIA BIDEN, HARRIS AND HIS ENTIRE COMMUNIST TEAM.

        1. Where did I see that John Kerry’s son was a
          Business partner with Hunter Biden until something
          went bad with a deal with CcP! Just like the Dems I
          Figured they’d get away with something else! It’s
          Fatiguing trying to remember all of the potential
          Crimes from these liberals who’ve been around
          25+ years to long!! So far not one of them has been
          Paid for crimes committed! So Be It! They’re all the
          Untouchables! Crimes do pay for them!

    2. Okay, I’m tired of investigating and bringing everything to light then — nothing happens. If the Republicans are not going to actually take action to fully discipline Kerry, please stop bringing it up month after month, year after year — as old saying goes “–it or get off the pot”.

      1. Amen! Dems are like Teflon— nothing sticks to them! Spawn of Satan can have preternatural abilities just like Satan !

    3. All the Democratic Rats can do no wrong but if you do the opposite you are a attacked for not agreeing. Also Democratic Rats can break the law and others can not

    4. I agree!! They should prosecute him. He is hardly above the law. Might have to convince him of that. The Logan Act fits prefect. Go for it !!!!! These people need to be punished for their act ?????

    5. So far, they are correct. They will never be charged and if hey are they will be acquitted or pushed under the rug. When is the last time a democrat has been charged and jailed for ANYTHING?

    1. Yes, he should be prosecuted. As well as Obama for backing this. Obama and Clinton are both behind the Russia Probe toward Trump and everbody else should be prosecuted. This is bull. The Democrats are prosecuting a Republican over something like this. The Democrats should be as well.

    1. He has been a scumbucket all the way back to his ” Winter Solduer” hearings testimony. Maligned troops in the field as marauding bands of torturers. A real piece of anti American garbage whose date with Karma is LONG OVERDUE

    2. And who do you believe is running our Government now? HILARY was supposed to be Obama’s ( Soros ) third and 4th terms, until Trump threw a Monkey wrench into the plan. Now they have a true puppet in the White House, he will do , sign, and say whatever they tell him to. Unfortunately with Durham announcing his resignation, the prosecutions of those behind all of these illegal deals will once again walk away. Or he may pull a Comey and announce no charges, as they did not break the law ” intentionally “

  3. Of course he should be prosecuted. It was blatant. What would Biden say if a Trump official was undermining him in any country, much less a rogue terrorist country like Iran. Good grief!!!.

  4. I’m pretty sure that there is a democrat rock that he can slither under. Dems can always get by with demonic actions; but just let a conservative speak a truth that the dems don’t like and it is time for the FBI, the CIA, and the Supreme court to look into it.

  5. Kerry has family in with Hunter Biden and they’re all crooks they should be held accountable for laws broken The average American would be under the jail come on man what the Hell

  6. Kerry is a liar, cheat, advantage taker, and should be prosecuted! Now he is back in “ joebama’s” cabinet, like all the rest of the scum Obama had! Who is running this sh** show? OBAMA! This is HIS third term! He needs to be gone along with his demon horde in our government! And Soros and his family as well.

  7. Kerry has allays been a piece of dirt. I hope something will become of this . It would be a big deal. I need a little uplifting news. Maybe these morons would be exposed what they are .

  8. Kerry is not only a POS but a traitor to this country. He needs to be prosecuted immediately. However, in light of the corrupt Chine-Joe Administration and the FBI, Kerry will not see the inside of a Federal prison.

  9. Not only,Kerry aka Lerch,but all or most of the politicians on both sides of aisle. Nothing will come of it,most are in bed together,they have their laws for themselves. We on the other hand, would be executed,quickly. We live in a sad,corrupt,perverted world,one day they all will be held accountable and justice will be served. Till then ,my fellow Americans, be strong and of good courage. Chazak,chazak,venischazeik

  10. Time for the GOP to get a spine and go after Kerry and demand he be ousted from the illegitimate Biden administration and charge the sob. My goodness, if this was about one of Trump’s people, the slime corrupt dems would be all over it.

  11. John Kerry should have given a Dishonorable discharge from the US Navy –instead of a BCD–His conduct in the US Navy and since leaving is very undesirable for a US representative. It is my feeling that Kerry should have never been able to be in any Government position after his military conduct and his improper conduct since.

  12. Just another BS article of old news and miss matched headline. Would love to find a site with qualified responsible writers that do no act like a super market tabloid sensationalist.

  13. This is awesome news, if there were any good guys with white hats still in our government? Are there, we shall see.

  14. D.J.T. did his best to drain the “Swamp”. Now? It’s filling back up rapidly. Or is it overflowing already? Is that what that smell is? TRUMP 2024!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. I questioned why Kerry was not prosecuted with the Logan act when the news came out he had had a secrete meeting with Iran while Trump was negotiating with them as well, just prior to his withdrawing for the agreement.

    There is no question in my mind Kerry should be prosicuted in regards to the Logan act.

  16. Kerry is a disgrace to the United States! He flaunted in Trump’s face when he went to Iran and was guilty of the Logan Act! He now says that political leaders have visited before. No, you are totally wrong. This lying corrupt communist democrat needs to be tried, convicted and sent to jail. He is as dumb as Kamala. There’s absolutely nothing between his two ears or hers either! Of course Biden has “no lights on upstairs”. Oh, the evil, corrupt communist democrat party only has criminals from the communist myslim Obama’s administration. God help the United States!

  17. Kerrey needs to prosecuted along with Cuomo, Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, AOC, Omar & all the rest of the not so esteemed Dems. But if we would just get someone to follow through & charge them one at a time that would be great.

  18. Corrupt politicians will always go that low then the innocent with their huge finger pointing ( they or someone ) is guilty.
    Must be habitually practice cause everyone is repeating this
    chronic behavior. The law only applies to their enemies and
    function in double standard.

  19. Nothing will happen to Kerry. He is one of the left’s richest politicians who also happens to part of the food ole boys of the democratic party. The Supreme Court, DOJ and judicial system will let them ruin this country because they have been bought off. They do not care how many laws they break, money they steal from the Treasury or people they kill to keep their secrets.

  20. TREASON, TREASON, I AM SURE he has lined up a sneaky way out of this mess.

    will pay off the right people.
