Trump Slams John Kerry For ‘Illegal Meetings’ With Iran: ‘Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act?’

As we pointed out yesterday, it’s now been confirmed that John Kerry had meetings with Iran where he was basically trying to undercut the Trump administration. He had no business doing it and Trump has taken notice.

FOX News reports:

Trump blasts John Kerry for ‘illegal meetings’ with Iranian regime

President Trump blasted John Kerry for having “illegal meetings” with members of the Iranian Regime and questioned whether the former secretary of state was registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

“John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people. He told them to wait out the Trump Administration! Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? BAD!” Trump tweeted Thursday night.

The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) is a disclosure statement that requires a person acting as an agent of a foreign principal in a political or quasi-political capacity to make public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal.

Kerry’s meetings do not appear to violate FARA, but some have suggested they could be in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from negotiating on behalf of the U.S. government without authorization, though no one has ever been successfully prosecuted under the law.

Just try to imagine the reaction from Democrats and their media allies if a State Department official from the Bush administration had done something like this to Obama. It would have been considered an international scandal and a high crime. But for Kerry? Crickets.
