Rubio: Investigate Kerry for secret meetings with Iran

Marco Rubio urges DOJ to investigate whether John Kerry violated federal law with Iran meetings

Gary Bauer of American Values says it appears that Kerry was giving aid and comfort to our enemy by advising the regime's leaders to patiently wait for the 2020 elections when, hopefully, Trump could be defeated and the nuclear deal could be salvaged.

Trump was not happy to learn about the back-door meetings Kerry had with the Iranians.

Kerry has openly admitted that he tried to foil the Iran Deal by meeting with top Iranian officials. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., to Attorney General Jeff Sessions stating Americans "deserve to know that USA laws are enforced regardless of any individual's past position".

In his letter, Rubio urged the DOJ to investigate whether Kerry's actions were violations of federal law, namely the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

"The American people deserve to know that US laws are enforced regardless of any individual's past position", Rubio said.

Kerry has said he met with Zariff three or four times since stepping down as secretary of state.

An Aspirin A Day Might Not Extend Life For Healthy Older People
Most were aged 70 or older, but the ages of some of black and Hispanic participants living in the United States were as low as 65. Taking aspirin regularly does not significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks or stroke, a study has found.

Kerry claimed he was trying to find out from the Iranian what his nation would be willing to do to "change the dynamic in the Middle East". And President Donald Trump has accused Kerry of holding "illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people".

Trump is not alone in his frustration with Kerry.

He went on to explain that "the Foreign Relations Registration Act, as described by the Justice Department, is 'a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursement in support of those activities'".

The Washington Free Beacon reports that since Trump announced the US was leaving the Iranian nuke deal, the Iranian economy "has continued to sputter and businesses and banks have exited its marketplace".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also blasted Kerry for his actions, saying there was "no precedent for this in USA history".

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed Kerry's behavior as "unprecedented" and "unseemly" behavior.
