U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo condemns his predecessor’s meetings with Iranian officials

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to a question about his predecessor’s actions vis a vis the Islamic Republic of Iran, stressing that while he will leave the legal assessments of possible treason “to others,” he views John Kerry’s communications with an enemy state “is unseemly and unprecedented” in U.S. history. Pompeo remarked that “What Secretary Karry has done is unseemly and unprecedented. This is a former Secretary of state engaged with the world’s largest state sponsor of terror.” He added that “Actively undermining U.S. policy, as a former Secretary of state is literally unheard of.” The outrage by Secretary Pompeo came in light of a boastful confession by Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who confirmed his continued discussions and meetings with top Iranian officials, including his former counterpart, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. The former Obama Administration official has reportedly provided advice to the Iranian government to counter the policies of the United States. The revelation prompted President Donald Trump to release a statement on his twitter account, in which he slammed Kerry for meeting with officials of a “very hostile Iranian regime” after he left his post at the Secretary of State, calling his actions illegal. Meanwhile, a senior American official told TV7 that Kerry’s actions may constitute treason, as the former Secretary of State clearly and openly provided an enemy state with aid and comfort – which provide legal grounds for his conviction, based on section three of article three of the U.S. constitution.
