What role has John Kerry played in this recent unpleasantness with Iran?
The National Sentinel ^ | 6/21/19 | Jon Dougherty

Posted on 06/21/2019 1:11:49 PM PDT by SleeperCatcher

For more than a year we’ve known that Obama’s secretary of state and longtime U.S. senator, John Kerry, has been attempting to undermine President Donald Trump’s foreign policy with the Islamic republic of Iran.

In May 2018, we posed the question: “What is John Kerry doing talking to the Iranians?”

We noted:

Reports … revealed that former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to ‘save’ the Iran nuclear deal he helped negotiate by holding secret meetings with Iranian diplomats.

The Boston Globe reported that Kerry began his secret meetings as reports spread that President Donald J. Trump was considering pulling out of the deal, which — as the current president — he has every right to do.

The paper said that Kerry “engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official” who was also involved in the original negotiations, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

Time for the NSA to make John Kerry’s phone conversations public, right after they pull a Michael Flynn on him.

It was my understanding that it was John Kerry that told the MMullahs to hit the 2 tankers and shoot down the drone as part of a [ploy to force the US back into the deal. That’s why the media is blaming this on the broken deal, John Kerry told them what he was doing.

At the bottom of the article:

“Given his history of Logan Act violations and recent discussions with this rogue regime, following by Iran’s challenging behavior, it would behove the president to have his attorney general, William Barr, impanel a grand jury, then haul Kerry in front of it and ask him, under oath and penalty of perjury, just what it was he and his Iranian buddies talked about.”

And why has this long term, notorious traitorous piece of .... not been investigated indicted and tried and convicted?

I’ll exclude the recommended punishment for treason

He has had considerable practice in that role.

One report said Kerry “engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official”
who was also involved in the original negotiations....Foreign Minister Javad A. Zarif.

THIS JUST IN---J.Ansari Zarif, the Iranian deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
said he would expose "everyone who allegedly accepted bribes" to facilitate Obama's nuke deal with Iran.

How Obama Secretly Gave Iran Access To Billions Of Dollars — And Enabled Terrorism
IBD ^ | February 8, 2018 | Editor / FR Posted on 2/9/2019 by yoe

Iran: One of the linchpins of former President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran was that it would be accompanied by a near-ban on Iran having any access to the U.S. banking system. A new congressional report says that, too, was a lie.

[snip] Obama sent a clear message to Congress: If you don't block ( this nuclear deal), we will bar Iran's access to our financial system. The deal was clear, unequivocal. [snip]It was also a lie. Obama lied, and so did others in his administration.

That's the conclusion of a report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. It alleges Obama officials pushed the U.S. Treasury to let Iran convert the equivalent of $5.7 billion of funds held in Oman's Bank of Muscat from rials into dollars and subsequently into euros.

[snip]Apart from the lie, which is bad enough for an administration that claimed repeatedly to be "scandal-free," this money did not have innocuous uses. Far from it. (Excerpt) Read more at investors.com ...

==================================================

Trump fired him now it turns out Secy of State Tillerson was pursuing Obama-era policies at the State Dept,
deliberately sabotaging President Trump on Iran policy, relations with Israel, the Paris Accords and other issues.
.......several prominent Obama officials who have knowledge of the Iran deal are still at the State Dept.
<><> Sahar Nowrouzzadeh, in charge of Iran and the Persian Gulf region on the policy planning staff,
<><> a former John Kerry apprentice, Michael Ratney, occupies the Israeli-Palestinian portfolio,
<><> trusted Obama aide, Yael Lempert, served under Tillerson on the same platform.

REFERENCE--- Obama's $1.3B giveaway to Iran was paid in cash Jan 22 and Feb 5 from a little-known fund administered by the US Treasury.The so-called Judgment Fund is made up of tax dollars Congress has permanently approved in the event it's needed....

SOURCE: fiscaltreasury.gov. -----The Judgment Fund was established to pay court judgments and Justice Department compromise settlements of actual or imminent lawsuits against the government. It is administered by the Judgment Fund Section, which is a part of the United States Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service. The Judgment Fund Internet Claims System (JFICS) is the application used to process all Judgment Fund claims.

The Judgment Fund is a permanent, indefinite appropriation available to pay judicially and administratively ordered monetary awards against the United States. The Judgment Fund is also available to pay amounts owed under compromise agreements negotiated by the U.S. Department of Justice in settlement of claims arising under actual or imminent litigation, if a judgment on the merits would be payable from the Judgment Fund. The statutory authority for the Judgment Fund is 31 U.S.C. 1304.

If funds for paying an award are otherwise provided for in the appropriations of the defendant agency, the Judgment Fund may not pay an award. A federal agency may request that payment of an award be made on its behalf from the Judgment Fund only in those instances where funds are not legally available to pay the award from the agency's own appropriations.

Amounts paid vary significantly from year-to-year. Federal agencies are not required to reimburse the Judgment Fund except when cases are filed under the Contract Disputes Act (CDA) or the No FEAR Act (Notification and Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act).

We can be contacted at judgment.fund@fiscal.treasury.gov or 202-874-6664.

Somebody needs to post that picture of him in his bunny suit. That says it all about the POS illegally undermining President Trump’s international policies. He probably isn’t even registered as a foreign agent to do so.

Don't pull the trigger by hauling Kerry in front of a grand jury.

His actions have already provided the U.S. government sufficient evidence to secure a FISA warrant on him and conduct surveillance against just about any American he has ever met.

That would include some jug-eared nitwit named Barack Hussein Obama.
