31 Jan Should the government investigate John Kerry’s shadow diplomacy with Iran?
“Former Secretary of State John Kerry has been accused of conducting shadow diplomacy with Iran after admitting to multiple meetings with Iranian officials without the knowledge of Trump administration officials.
Many Republicans consider these meetings to be illegal. John Kerry’s meetings with high-profile foreign leaders is in direct violation of the Logan Act — which prohibits private citizens from negotiating on behalf of the U.S. government without authorization. However, till today no one has ever been successfully prosecuted under this law.
“Every secretary of state, former secretary of state continues to meet with foreign leaders, goes to security conferences, goes around the world,” Kerry said in his defense. “We all do that. And we all have conversations (about) the state of affairs with the world to understand them.”
