John Kerry with Iranian scoundrelsA U.S. senator has become the first lawmaker on Capitol Hill to suggest that John Kerry violated federal law by meeting with Iranian leaders.

It's no secret that Kerry has met with Iran's foreign minister as a private citizen, and now Sen. Marco Rubio has sent a letter calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate whether Kerry violated the Logan Act.

The law prohibits unauthorized individuals from negotiating with foreign governments.

"Basically what it says in the Logan Act," Rubio told Fox News, "is if there is a U.S. citizen that without the authority of the U.S. government is talking to a foreign government, with the intent of influencing the conduct of that government, or with the intent to defeat a measure of the U.S. government, the Logan Act makes that illegal."

Kerry, who crafted the controversial Iran nuclear deal, is suspected of assuring the Iranians that a future Democratic president will begin cooperating with them in 2020 if Trump is defeated.
