Senator Marco Rubio is calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate John Kerry for meeting with Iranian officials after he left office, as Fox News reports:
In an open letter posted on his Twitter page, Rubio urged the DOJ to determine if Kerry’s “recent actions related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran” was a violation of the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act – a federal law which prohibits private citizens from negotiating on behalf of the U.S. government without authorization.

On Thursday, President Trump accused Kerry of breaking the law by meeting with Iranian officials and said he should be prosecuted under the Logan Act. Trump appeared to have been referring to Kerry’s reported meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarid in early 2018, well after Kerry left his post as secretary of state.
John Kerry is a piece of work and America dodged a bullet by choosing Geroge W. Bush over John Kerry.

Perhaps former Obama administration officials need to be investigated to see if they have any ties to the United States of America.
