(Republican Insider) – The American Center for Law and Justice has opened up an investigation, claiming that officials from the Biden administration, including former Secretary of State John Kerry, interfered with and might have even sabotaged U.S. foreign policy with the country of Iran while former President Donald Trump was president.
According to a report from WND, the ACLJ stated that it’s currently looking for documentation from the State Department concerning discussions that took place with Iranian officials.
“It is very dangerous and extremely concerning that John Kerry, while a private citizen, was actively meeting with foreign officials to not only undermine U.S. foreign policy but to sabotage it,” the organization said.
“This creates confusion in the international arena because it prevents the U.S. from having a clear unified message and contradicts the established and important U.S. policy of having one president at a time,” they said.
Liberal publication The Washington Times released a report back in February revealing that former President Trump tried to open up a “back channel” with Iran to try and defuse escalating tensions. It failed.
“The report said that two months earlier, ‘a different back channel was thriving in New York’ as Iran’s English-speaking foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, met with Robert Malley, who was President Obama’s Middle East adviser,” WND reports.
The Times then stated that it was an “apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations.”
“President Biden’s team actively did what they falsely accused the previous Trump administration of doing,” the ACLJ went on to say. “According to declassified documents, then-Vice President Biden himself even inquired about using the Logan Act against Michel Flynn for establishing communications with a foreign government official.”
“However, unlike Michael Flynn, who had already been appointed to serve as the incoming National Security Adviser, leading leftists were meeting with Zarif as far back as 2017 – not to prepare to take office, but AFTER they left office, the organization stated.
A former official then told the Times that Zarif had a meeting with Obama administration officials in 2017, 2018, and 2019 before his visa ended up getting canceled.
“The underlying goals of Mr. Zarif’s meetings, the official said, was ‘to devise a political strategy to undermine the Trump administration’ and to continue building up a reservoir of support for the JCPOA, or another deal like it, that could be drawn up if a Democrat returned to the White House in 2021,” that report explained.
The group then revealed that officials with the Obama administration kept in contact with Palestinian Authority officials long after the Trump administration shut down those very relations.
Apparently, Obama’s people also maintained contact with the Palestinian Authority after Trump’s administration shut down those relations.
Trump’s former secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, sat down for an interview with Fox News where he said it’s “sad that Secretary Kerry is so unable to get off the stage at any point that he had to go try and undermine what President Trump and our team were trying to do.”
Welcome to the modern world of left-wing politics.
