Conservatives Call on John Kerry to Resign & Face Investigation for Intelligence Leak

Conservative Action Project — Tuesday, May 11, 2021

Conservatives call on John Kerry to resign from his post as the Biden administration’s climate envoy over allegations he leaked classified intelligence while serving as Secretary of State.

According to Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, Kerry shared classified intelligence about Israeli strikes on Iranian targets in Syria. As reported in the New York Times, Zarif said “Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment.”

The timing of these remarks appear to have occurred before this information was released into the public domain in September 2018. It thus seems possible, if not likely, that Kerry shared still-classified intelligence about an intensification of Israeli military strikes with an official of Iran, the target country.

These claims, if true, are tantamount to treason. After years of Democrats demanding all-of-government investigations into President Trump over obviously spurious claims, it is the height of hypocrisy for them to ignore substantive allegations against a Democrat in power. John Kerry has once again proven himself to be a traitor to the United States.

We call on Kerry to resign from his official government post, and we call on Congress and the relevant agencies to swiftly and thoroughly investigate his actions.
