Report: Biden Team “Colluded” with Iran to Undermine Trump Foreign Policy

Report: Biden Team “Colluded” with Iran to Undermine Trump Foreign Policy

The Washington Times: John Kerry, others opened backchannels with Tehran in “an apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations.”

A recent report disclosed that leading members of President Joe Biden’s administration, including former Secretary of State and current Climate czar John Kerry, may have “colluded” with Iran to undermine President Donald Trump’s foreign policy.

Kerry, Biden administration’s Iran envoy Robert Malley, and other former Obama officials were in “backchannel” talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in “an apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations,” the Washington Times reported Sunday.

The Washington Times published the details of these unauthorized talks:

President Trump in 2019 sought to open a back channel of communication with top Iranian officials and saw the U.N. General Assembly meeting in September as a potential opportunity to defuse escalating tension with Tehran, but the effort failed.

Two months earlier, however, a different back channel was thriving in New York. Iran’s smooth, English-speaking foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, met with Robert Malley, who was President Obama’s Middle East adviser, in an apparent bid to undermine the Trump team and lay the groundwork for post-Trump relations.

The attempt at counterdiplomacy offers a window into the deep relationships Mr. Zarif forged with influential U.S. liberals over the past decade. These relationships blossomed into what high-level national security and intelligence sources say allowed the Iranian regime to bypass Mr. Trump and work directly with Obama administration veterans that Tehran hoped would soon return to power in Washington.

One of those was former Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who met with Mr. Zarif during the Trump years. So did Obama-era Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. They, along with Mr. Malley, were top U.S. negotiators of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). As part of the deal, Tehran promised to limit its nuclear enrichment activities in exchange for economic sanctions relief and access to tens of billions of dollars in frozen bank accounts.

Malley, the architect of the flawed Obama-era nuclear deal, told the ruling Mullahs of Tehran to wait out the Trump presidency in hopes of better terms under a Democratic administration, the report suggested. In a 2018 interview, Kerry also admitted giving Iranians similar advice.

“Malley, in his meeting with Zarif, likely urged Iranian officials to sit tight until 2021, when it was expected a Democratic administration could restore the deal,” the New York Post reported on Monday.

Malley seems to have a history of holding secretive talks with entities hostile to the United States. The 20o8 Obama presidential campaign fired him after embarrassing details of his “unauthorized” discussions with the Iran-supported Islamic terrorist group Hamas came to light.

The Washington Times article also exposed the reach Iran’s diplomat has within the Democratic foreign policy establishment:

(…) Zarif’s power extends far beyond the negotiating table. Numerous sources have told The Washington Times that he wields tremendous influence over a tightly knit group inside the U.S. that has long advocated for Washington to take a more accommodating tack toward Iran.

The sources, including several from the U.S. intelligence community who spoke on the condition of anonymity, described a “web” of activity tied to prominent think tanks across the United States, as well as lobbying efforts that reached directly into the White House during the Obama years.

It’s an informal union of Iran apologists and pro-diplomacy advocates that helps amplify Mr. Zarif’s talking points, giving the Iranian Foreign Ministry influence over public opinion in the United States and considerable sway in left-leaning political and social circles.

Responding to the damning revelations, former Secretary Mike Pompeo called the conduct of the senior Biden administration officials “unamerican.”

“We knew this was going on,” he told the Fox News on Wednesday. “It’s unamerican. It’s very troubling. It’s not the right thing to do.”

Former acting director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell, on Tuesday, called for a detailed inquiry into these previously undisclosed meetings between the prominent Obama-Biden officials and the Iranian regime’s top brass.

“I think we’ve got to look at the details because if these meetings were happening and he was undermining U.S. policy by offering a different alternative, a different set of carrots if you will, we really need to get to the bottom of this,” he told the Newsmax, referring to the Logan Act, which prohibits unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.

When the first revelations about John Kerry’s alleged backdoor dealings with Tehran first came to light in mid-2019, President Donald Trump took a similar stance.

“[Biden]’s talking to Iran and has been — has many meetings and many phone calls, and he’s telling them what to do. That is a total violation of the Logan Act,” President Trump said in May 2019.

“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!” he subsequently tweeted.

By rehiring Obama officials with the history of backdoor dealings with Tehran, Biden sends all the wrong signals to the regime.

With his old friends back in the White House, Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif told the Biden administration to pay $1 trillion in “reparation” for the U.S. sanctions.

The regime is also expecting President Biden to lift “all sanctions in the near future,” a senior Iranian regime spokesman declared on Saturday.

Brings to mind an old book title: None Dare Call it Treason. (or, was it Conspiracy?)

The 1964 book is “None Dare Call It Treason” by John Stormer.

It riffs on a quote from Sir John Harrington: “Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”

If they call it treason, then they get mobbed, de-platformed, fired, have all their bank accounts canceled, and get harassed by the secret police.

Many of us said this from day one of the Trump administration and got excuses like the Logan act means nothing although the same knuckle draggers charged Flynn with the Logan Act.

    No, they didn’t charge him. They raised it internally as a possible excuse for investigating him, that’s all. They knew as well as everyone has known for 200 years that the Logan Act comes with a self-destruct button. It persists only because for 200 years nobody has been so foolish as to use it in court, and thus give a judge the chance to strike it down.

Connivin Caniff | February 24, 2021 at 12:14 pm

For once, the Logan Act has an agenda.

Isn’t this what Flynn had his life destroyed over? However in Flynns case it was manufactured by Democrats.

This seems actually worthy of investigation by the FBI.

On another point, before the brain dead fucks start wanking on about it, it seems perfectly appropriate for the SITTING Administration talking to the Iranians via back channels when formal channels of communication are somewhat strained.

However for others to to be doing this with, no ties or approval from/with the then sitting Administration, no other reason than to undermine the then current Administration would seem to be somewhat treasonous….in a sane fucking world.

Sadly we don’t live in a sane fucking world.

Fuck. Them. All.

    “This seems actually worthy of investigation by the FBI.”

    Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    “Listen to that,” said the man in a red cloak, “one animal says another animal told it to do something.”

    No, it isn’t what Flynn had his life destroyed over; that was just the excuse for continuing the investigation when the FBI was going to shut it down.

    The problem with the Logan Act is that it can’t ever be used in court; the first time it is, it will be struck down. Therefore prosecutors who find it useful to have it around for intimidating people with are careful never to bring it anywhere near a judge.

But to paraphrase mcconnels pick for A G :
“if the talks happened at night it isn’t a violation of the logan act”

Why the fuck is anybody surprised?

This is EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID in 2008. Kerry told Iran NOT to make a deal with Bush because Obama would give them a much better deal.

I don’t think Papa Joe knew anything about this (I speak loosely).
Most likely happend while he was having yet another Power Nap (after calling a lid).
Kammy no doubt was at the Helm (reminds me of a joke).

When the Dems/Progs/media can say or do nearly anything, up to and including treason, then have the deep state and dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, cover for and justify illegal actions we are close to losing our country as we know it.

Israel has already made it clear that they are prepared to go to war NOW if Iran proceeds with their nuclear program. The Saudis followed that by re-affirming their alliance with Israel which probably means the the UAE and others will also abide by the Trump Peace deal.

The Arabs are broadly pleased with this policy so Iran has no friends even among its Muslim neighbors. Everyone is tired of war and wants to move on. At this point, I doubt this is the hill China will want to die on.

So let’s start arresting Kerry and his fellow traitors.

    I suspect the Jews and most of the Middle East realised a while ago that any other President other than Trump will not be good for peace for anyone.

    The fact these groups are prepared to work together is down to Trump not being part of the Swamp.

This is what I call a confirmation article. It isn’t like we didn’t know that Kerry was going behind the back of the American government in a most subversive manner and dealing with Iran when he had absolutely no jurisdiction to do so. Wonder how they would feel if President Trump kept negotiating with the Middle Eastern countries and locked down many more peace treaties between them and Israel. Can’t you just hear the howling now?

Joe “Logan Act” Biden no doubt will instruct the DoJ to immediately bring charges against these criminals and all their accomplices…

Colluded to undermine the American people.

Stick a fork in America – it’s done.
That rst mcconnell just voted ‘yes’ to that freak garland for att general.

Our top cop has us in his sights for oppression.

We won’t last 4 years. Secession is our only hope.

    Throw another baby on the barbie, cannibalize her profitable parts, and sequester her carbon pollutants, perhaps. America is no longer viable, maybe, baby.

    The Good Witch in reply to | February 24, 2021 at 4:59 pm

    I don’t know why it hasn’t started yet. A compromised election system, no real representation in our government, rampant censorship, liberal media that openly lies about their opposition, and a government that plots against its own citizenry. I have just described how Soviet Russia was explained to me in the 60’s.

“Now there’s a surprise…I think I’m going to have a heart attack and die from that surprise.” – Iago the Parrot.

John F-ing Kerry has never, ever stopped betraying his country. At least Obama was only in elected or appointed government for ten years. John F-ing Kerry has been knifing this country in the back as a representative, senator, presidential candidate, secretary of state, and now climate czar for the last 40 or more years. This after he knifed his fellow sailors and soldiers in the back from his year in Vietnam.

When, oh when, will we ever get rid of this monster. His ego could fill the Grand Canyon.

    That’s why he has such a large head…to accommodate a big ego and a blow hard mouth.

    Obama is still scheming to take America down. He never stopped.

      Now there’s a man whose life is so well hidden I’m not even sure who he is.

      A few years ago I purchased a biography of William Jefferson Clinton that was on sale at Barnes and Noble for $.99. It covered his early life up to the time he became Governor of Arkansas. It had hundreds of photographs, it told all about his life as a child, his chilhood friends, pictures of houses he lived in, where he went to school, interviews with teachers and neighbors, where he went of vacation, information and details from hundreds of people who knew him.
      But Obama, I know practically nothing, just a mere outline of his life. All the details are hidden. All his records are sealed, questions remain unanswered, nothing but an enigma.
      The only thing I know for sure about Obama is that he scheming to take America down.

The Dhimmi-crats maintain cordial relations with Iran’s Islamic despots, but, meanwhile, Chairman “Big Guy” Xi-den resurrects vile Obama’s childish, obnoxious and indefensible hostility towards Israel, having failed to return PM Netanyahu’s phone call made months ago, in a rather obvious and petulant snub, despite the inpsufferable pspokes-wench Psaki’s ridiculous and stupid claim that this isn’t an obvious snub.

Is there no law to put a stop to things like this?

And no I’m not talking about the Logan Act.

We were pointing out four years ago that Kerry was conducting his own personal foreign policy with Iran, and nobody in the Trump Administration seemed to care.

Malley, in his meeting with Zarif, likely urged Iranian officials to sit tight until 2021, when it was expected a Democratic administration could restore the deal

The only way Malley could be telling anybody this is if he knew the election was going to be fortified.

Who’s paranoid now ?

As soon as the Israeli Air Force can fly the needed planes ,

they will be all over Iran. Every night.

The recent much too late Air Force deal will be those planes. But it will be another year or two

before they are operational.

The tankers are the key. Once tankers are airborne we are good to go.

A man has got to do, what I man must do.

Kerry must be exposed for the vile turd that he is.
