Foreign Policy: Recent comments by former Democratic presidential candidate, Secretary of State and Senator John Kerry lead to one inevitable conclusion: Making Kerry America's top diplomat was a huge error.
Kerry has been seen a lot lately, largely because he's flogging a book, "Every Day Is Extra," seemingly everywhere in the media. He's doing lots of live interviews, some of them quite telling.
In one, for instance, he calls President Donald Trump's time in office a matter of "life and death," and suggests that he would "bring a case against Donald Trump for the lives that will be lost" due to his presidency. Lives lost to what? Some foreign war? Failure to protect us from terrorism?
Nope. Global warming. A purely hypothetical threat.
That's bad enough. It shows such poor judgment and extreme bias that Kerry should never hold a federal position of power ever again.
But far worse is his admission that he met "three or four times" with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif since Kerry left office. He admits talking about Trump's decision to exit the foolish Iran nuclear deal that Kerry helped craft, and other issues as well. And he didn't deny that he encouraged Iran to simply wait for Trump to leave office and a Democrat to come before taking any major actions.

All of this ties into what the FBI, DOJ, CIA and others were doing to try and thwart the Trump Presidency. He needs to make this a campaign issue.
If we had a competent Attorney General he would have been already.
It’s what the Justice Department CAN DO. They won’t. You need a selective prosecution here and there to keep them honest and in line. It’s harder to cut it off at the head. Think Hillary. Kerry’s up there too.
OMG ,arrest someone on the Demonut side ,anyone ,LOL
Prosecuted? He’s a lying democrat- so he is above the law like all democrats are- the msm will never push for his prosecution- but let a republican win the presidency and the left fall all over themselves trying to invent crimes to prosecute the republican for
Wait until he is in Iran, then cancel his passport.
Democrats are LAWLESS because Republicans are BALLLESS!!!!
Good luck with that. Nothing was done to Clinton because of Chinagate, nothing was done with Ted Kennedy, who tried to get them to influence the 1994 election. Every Democrat has a "Get out of Jail Free" card.
Yes, if we only had a Justice Department, Attorney General and an FBI.
Kerry should be shot for Vietnam.
How many times does Kerry have to prove he is a traitor before something happens to him?
None of the participants of the Kenyanesian Usurpation will be prosecuted for anything.
To do so would expose the complicity of too many people who wear R jerseys.
Trump needs to stop whining about Sessions on twitter, call him into the Oval Office and tell him point blank to do his job or he’s out now.
Instead he get an upgraded discharge.
I think what the administration could do right now, is revoke his security clearance.
Kerry Should Be Prosecuted For Illegal Iran Meetings
And being a general asshat.
Yes, but it won’t happen. The Republican party has no balls.
As has been noted before, this is a plain violation of the Logan Act, the 199-year-old law that forbids private American citizens from conducting foreign policy without authorization.
No one has ever been prosecuted under the law, largely because it was never really intended for that. It was meant to send a message to private citizens to butt out when it comes to diplomacy and foreign affairs.
One can still hope for justice.
