REPORT: John Kerry Facing Felony for HUGE Logan Act Violation For Colluding With Iran
This weekend, the President gave a hint that the DOJ is about to go after John Kerry for his treasonous meetings with Iran in 2018, a discussion that DC operatives have been claiming for weeks. In 2018, Kerry admitted meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif “three or four times” to discuss Obama’s signature nuclear deal with Iran that Trump ripped up. It was illegal for John Kerry, who wasn’t elected president, to be colluding with Iran or any other foreign government to undermine U.S. foreign policy.
Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal with Iran in May 2018.
The Logan Act is a 1799 law, which criminalizes unauthorized negotiations with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. Only two people have been indicted for violating the act, one in 1802 and the other in 1852.
The Logan Act was passed following George Logan’s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony.
In the early days of the Trump administration, the left accused of Trump of Logan Act violations, for having the rather common transitional meetings with foreign governments. They were not Logan Act violations, nor were they what the law was written for.
What John Kerry did, was what they were written for.
“Big violation of Logan Act?” Trump asked, referring to a more than 200-year-old law that prohibits private citizens from acting on behalf of the United States in negotiations with foreign governments without authorization.
I have a wide and diverse circle of friends, some of which are often inside the White House. There has been discussion for weeks that some are looking into the viability of charging John Kerry with a major Logan Act violation. It seems that with William Barr as the attorney general, those discussions have increased in recent days.
So when I saw the President tweet yesterday morning…“Big violation of Logan Act?”
Saudi Arabia and others in OPEC will more than make up the Oil Flow difference in our now Full Sanctions on Iranian Oil. Iran is being given VERY BAD advice by @JohnKerry and people who helped him lead the U.S. into the very bad Iran Nuclear Deal. Big violation of Logan Act?

The tweet meant a lot more to me than some. It is not just an accidental tweet. It is a fact that John Kerry has been the focus of more than a few discussions, as should be.
Trump brought up Kerry’s Logan Act violation after the White House announced that it would not extend waivers on Iran oil sanctions to the biggest buyers of Iranian oil, including India, China, and Japan.
Trump’s goal is to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, in a bid to force the regime to abandon its nuclear and missile programs, stop funding radical Islamic terrorism, and end human rights abuses, among other issues.
In what world do we live in, where the Democrats feel that they are so entitled, that they can sacrifice our Republic for their own need for power and assumption that they are smarter than everyone?
But Trumps tweet is not the only outward evidence we have that prison time could be heading John Kerry’s way. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in reaction to the tweet, almost in a set/volly:
“What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented. This is a former secretary of state engaged with the largest state sponsor of terror.”
But Kerry did not just meet up a few times with the Iranian Foreign Minister.
He also met with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and top European Union official Federica Mogherini. Kerry also lobbied members of Congress concerning Iran.
Judical Watch is also on the case.They sued the Department of State with an FOIA lawsuit on April 15, for records of communications between Kerry and State Department officials and meetings between Kerry and Iranian officials about the Iran deal.
“Our lawsuit is meant to discover not only what Kerry was up to but also to unearth who inside the Deep State Trump ‘resistance’ were coordinating with Kerry’s clandestine efforts to undermine President Trump’s Iran policy.”
The Trump administration announced Monday it would impose sanctions on countries that continue buying oil from Iran.
News of the impending end to the waivers triggered a spike in oil prices. The White House said it is working with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to increase production to make up for the supply lost from Iran.
“Saudi Arabia and others in OPEC will more than make up the Oil Flow difference in our now Full Sanctions on Iranian Oil,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
In September 2018, the United States outpaced Russia and Iran to become the world’s largest crude oil producer for the first time in nearly two decades.
So what happens next? We will see. But it is commonly accepted by legal minds in my circles, that the case against Kerry is pretty easy. You just don;t do what he did, and undermine the foreign policy of this nation as a private citizen.
Keep the pop-corn running!
