The question of Treason
Kerry, who served as America's chief diplomat from 2013 to 2017, was one the key architects of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran deal, which was designed to make sure Tehran gradually eliminated its medium-enriched uranium stockpile in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. Although America's European allies are still abiding by it, Mr. Trump withdrew the U.S. from the agreement in May 2018, deriding it as a one-sided deal. Since leaving office, Kerry has...

Treason  comes up in the Constitution of the United States (“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort”)

Each President gets to have his own foreign policy, even Donald Trump. It would seem that one former Secretary of State disagrees with that idea. That would be John Kerry who served as Secretary of State from 2013 to 2017. He was one the key architects of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the "Iran deal" and like so many selected by Barak Obama, served as a like minded ideologue. Every agency of government seemed to have been politicized and weaponized by Obama and we are seeing the results of that with Kerry.

In May of 2018 the Boston Globe began to chronicle Kerry's efforts to salvage the "Iran Deal" by providing advice to the anti-American regime and trying to bring pressure on the US from the outside:

ASHINGTON — John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.

He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.
With the Iran deal facing its gravest threat since it was signed in 2015, Kerry has been on an aggressive yet stealthy mission to preserve it, using his deep lists of contacts gleaned during his time as the top US diplomat to try to apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside. President Trump, who has consistently criticized the pact and campaigned in 2016 on scuttling it, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to continue abiding by its terms."

“It is unusual for a former secretary of state to engage in foreign policy like this, as an actual diplomat and quasi-negotiator,” said Michael O’Hanlon, a foreign policy expert at the Brookings Institution.  I say it's a bit more than "unusual".  It is an American citizen trying to subvert the foreign policy of the United States.

Iran has had a long history of killing American military forces. Right now they mat be threatening American forces in the region, thus the US Naval force now going through the Suez Canal. We can only hope that an act of one individual dosen't lead to war.

The aircraft carrier USS  Abraham Lincoln  transits the Atlantic Ocean in January.

President Trump remains open to dialogue with Iranian leaders.

"Iran’s recent threats and alleged plans to attack U.S. interests reflect the success of President Trump’s maximum-pressure strategy on Iran. U.S. sanctions have isolated Iran and deprived its ruling mullahs of funds to spend on the military, terrorism, and meddling in regional disputes. The sanctions also have caused Iran’s oil exports to drop to about 1.3 million barrels a day, down from 2.8 million before the U.S. left the JCPOA. Iran’s oil exports probably will drop much further due to the Trump administration’s recent decision to end all exemptions to U.S. oil sanctions. Iran’s economy is expected to shrink by 6 percent in 2019 after having shrunk 3.9 percent in 2018. Inflation could reach 50 percent this year."

Yep ..… Kerry did it, Kerry did it :

"adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort”

Maybe he just had a "Brain Fart" and thought he was still important, and that allowed him to  "Have more flexibility too" , since he was "Involved" in the Non-Binding Deal originally. jrSmiley_99_smiley_image.jpg

This is where Tony comes in with the gun and says "Hey, Frank, you're a piece of shit."   And Kerry says "what are you talkin about"
