UPDATE: New Documents Confirm Former Obama Officials Including John Kerry Were Meeting Secretly with Iranian Officials During Trump Administration

Former Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting with Iranian regime officials throughout President Trump’s administration.

John Kerry was working against the Trump administration to salvage the dangerous Iranian nuclear agreement.

Photos were taken of John Kerry following a secret meetings with Iranian officials in Paris in 2018.

And audio was later leaked of John Kerry discussing top-secret information on Israel’s covert operations in Syria.

President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for an investigation of John Kerry for his illegal actions.  The DOJ refused.

Earlier this week the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) published a new memo that confirms even more meetings between John Kerry and the Iranian regime during the Trump administration.

This is the definition of sedition.

The ACLJ published a memo this week of more meetings between John Kerry and the Iranians.

Why is this guy not being investigated?

The ALCJ reported:

The Boston Globe put it this way:  “Kerry is quietly seeking to salvage Iran deal he helped craft.”

The ACLJ put it a bit more bluntly: “John Kerry tried to undermine President Trump in order to support Iran, putting our national security at risk.”

Remember the stories that former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry – no longer in office as of January 20, 2017 – engaged in shadow diplomacy with Iran promoting foreign policy contrary to that of America’s sitting President, Donald Trump? As the story continued to unfold, and more information about the Left’s counter-diplomacy was revealed even just last year, the ACLJ went to work.

We launched a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the State Department, seeking records of State Department awareness of or involvement with Obama-era U.S. officials – aka, the Deep State – employing undercover backchannels in an effort to undercut President Trump’s cornerstone foreign policy of withdrawing the United States from the disastrous Obama/Biden Iran Deal.

In the FOIA lawsuit against the State Department that ensued, the ACLJ just obtained a never-before-seen “unclassified” October 2018 memo entitled, “Notes From ‘Iran and the US: An Off-the-Record Conversation with Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif.’”

According to this memo, the previously unreported “off-the-record meeting” took place at the “Iranian Ambassador’s Residence, NYC,” on October 4, 2018 – just days after major media coverage of Kerry’s admission of the secret efforts. The memo we unearthed contains notes on the former U.S. diplomats’ conversation with Zarif and his responses “to questions posed by a group of US former ambassadors and policy analysts.”

The key here is “former” – and the date, October 2018, right in the middle of the Trump Administration.
