GOP calls for John Kerry’s resignation over potentially ‘treasonous’ comments

There’s an old adage that “Loose lips sink ships.” For  John Kerry, who is currently serving as President Joe Biden’s U.S. special envoy for climate change, he may be about to sink his own career after allegedly sharing information with Iran.

Several lawmakers are calling for Kerry’s resignation because he allegedly tipped off Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif about at least 200 attacks perpetrated by Isreal, the Washington Times reported. The information comes from leaked audio that some are saying amounts to treason.

Kerry served as secretary of state during the Iranian-friendly Obama administration but denies tipping off the Iranian government. “I can tell you that this story and these allegations are unequivocally false,” Kerry, who served in the position from 2013-2017, said. “This never happened – either when I was Secretary of State or since.”

Some of the information Kerry was caught speaking about is now publicly known, though it is unclear if it was at the time statements were made. Still, several Republicans have gotten on board with calls for Kerry’s resignation based on the allegations.

Trump administration officials like former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo publicly called for an investigation. Haley called Kerry’s conduct “disgusting on many levels.” Pompeo said the allegations confirmed “what I’ve said for years: that [Zarif] continued to engage with former Secretary of State Kerry on policy matters after Kerry’s public service and, according to Zarif, Kerry informed the Iranians of Israeli operations.”

Republican lawmakers also got on board with calls for Kerry’s resignation. “People are talking about treason — and I don’t throw that word around a lot,” Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan said. “John Kerry does all kinds of things that I can’t stand. But this is the one that broke the camel’s back,” he explained.

“If this tape is verified,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said, “it would signal catastrophic and disqualifying recklessness by Envoy Kerry to Foreign Minister Zarif that endangered the safety of Americans and our allies.” He said the allegations fit with Kerry’s “long pattern of empowering Iran’s regime” in his previous position.

“Kerry poured hundreds of billions of dollars into the Ayatollah’s terrorist bank accounts, was a close confidant with Zarif during the Obama administration, and was caught repeatedly meeting with him during the Trump administration (notwithstanding the Logan Act) — and has never publicly accounted for what they discussed,” Cruz charged.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham did add a note of caution to the impassioned rhetoric, however. “I don’t know if we should trust that tape or not. If it’s true, it’s very damaging,” Graham admitted. “I like John Kerry, but that would not be helpful, and it would be very problematic if it were true. But let’s wait and see how authentic this is.”

The truth will eventually come to light, but these allegations are serious enough to warrant further official scrutiny. If found to be true, these serious charges against Kerry would amount to treason — and losing his special position in the Biden administration will be the least of his problems.

  3. Cook the pos for treason along with Biden and harris and pelosi and schumer and the rest of the traito

  4. Kerry has been committing treason since Obama. It has been non stop until today. Put him against the wall and execute him. Wait democrats are in control they will give him a medal.

    1. Kerry has been committing treason since Vietnam – nothing has happened to him and nothing will happen to him.
      Kerry is a progressive democrat communist.
      Progressive democrat communists are above all laws!

  5. Like every other crime carried out by politicians, nothing will happen to the criminal actor. They are the chosen ones. They make the laws, they break the laws. We are becoming the Old Soviet Union. We are becoming Nazi Germany. The chosen few does as they wish, the rest of us pay the bill for their sick actions. I never thought I would wish for a civil war. I have been holding my breath hoping the Convention of States would fix the problem. It appears we will not survive until this can be put into motion and stop the run away government.

  7. While I would certainly not mind losing Kerry to history, I would like for you people to stop showing headlines that give the impression of an accomplished action. Would that not qualify as “fake news?” I would prefer reading about facts rather than dreams.

  8. THE GOP might as well go PISS IN A STRONG WIND as NOTHING will be done by DEMENTIA JOE DO INJUSTICE nor WRAY CORRUPTED FBI still part of the OBAMA DOJ FOR ILLEGAL ACTS and COMEY FBI covering up for Clinton nad Obama Illegalities….might as well go after the CCP run WH KLAN

  9. You folks will grasp at any straws, even those that quote the Iranians in an attempt to undermine US/Israel relations. But what does one expect from the UnAmerican Digest sycophants, Putin lovers and Trump 30,000+ lies.

    1. Undermine US/Israel relations? Your own anti-semite ‘squad’ has the market cornered on that. And still bringing up the repeatedly disproven Russia hoax only shows the desperation to deflect from the would-be CCP takeover of America that you lefties have been working to facilitate for years. And yes, there will be a very bloody civil war before we freedom loving patriots will submit to your Communist slavery. So, are you ready to die for your fascist ideals?

  10. Kerry committed treason and Graham is bipolar. He doesn’t know which side of the fence to sit on. This not about being friends, it’s about the safety of our nation and what is right. Breaking up is so hard to do. Good luck in your next election and see how that works for you, Friends with a treasonist person or the people you represent.

  11. If anyone of these crooks were held accountable; indicted, and hauled off to prison as they should be, just maybe the amount of corruption could be reduced – no secret there is a great deal that goes on but when it comes to our national security these bums need to be caged. Start at the top and let this sh.. roll down hill to clean up the corruption. We may need more prisons but I hear GITMO would have plenty of room.

  12. Kerry is a traitor, should have been charged with the Logan act,and senator Graham if you like this scumbag I”m a resident of South Carolina and you just lost my vote.

  13. I never liked “Lurch” myself, but even if he were to get convicted of treason, instead of his execution, which is the punishment for treason, the treason that’s in the WH would obviously pardon him because if he were allowed to be executed our “illustrious leader” would be signing his own death warrant. Besides, with the CIA, FBI and many Federal Judges “in the Dems pocket”, do you REALLY think they’re going to find Kerry guilty??

  14. Isn’t Kerry’s daughter married to a high level Iranian official? That alone should be enough so that he is never allowed to deal with Iran? Let’s get real here, he has been doing this for many years now and it is treason.

  15. Get him a cell, a permanent cell, down at Guantanamo with the rest of the anti-American hordes. Water-board him a couple of times a day to remind him of the anti military lies he testified to about Viet Nam. You could offer him back to Iran, but I doubt they would want him back there, either. so, Hi Ho, Hi ho, take him back to Guantanano… and throw away the keys…
