Rubio Renews Push to Investigate Whether Kerry Violated Logan Act


Sen. Marco Rubio is urging the DOJ to investigate John Kerry’s meetings with Iranian officials.

“The Department of Justice should therefore make a determination on whether or not former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s recent actions related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran potentially violate the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.”

“The American people deserve to know that U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position,” Rubio states. “The Department of Justice should, therefore, make a determination on whether or not former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s recent actions related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran potentially violate the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.”

Rubio is renewing the push to have the Justice Department look into potential violations after having requested then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to examine whether Kerry acted improperly.

In his letter to Barr, Rubio included his previous letter to Sessions, sent in September of 2018, which highlighted Secretary Kerry’s admission that he had met with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif “probably three or four times,” since the end of the Obama administration. The Boston Globe reported last May that Kerry had been “quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft” and described Kerry has engaging “in some unusual shadow diplomacy,” with Zarif. More

The Logan Act was written to prevent private citizens from meddling in US foreign policy. Only two people have ever been prosecuted on suspicion of violating the Logan Act, and neither was convicted but there’s a first time for everything!

Democrats lose their minds on Twitter:

One of Rubio’s greatest moments was smacking down John Kerry on the Senate floor as a new senator but that was long before he became a huge RINO.
