Kerry allegations warrant an investigation: GOP senators

John Kerry with Iranian scoundrelsTwo Republican senators are calling for John Kerry to be investigated over just what he might have told Iran over the years.

Kerry, Barack Obama's former U.S. secretary of state, is being accused of passing information about Israeli operations to the Islamic Republic – and now there are demands for him to be investigated and held accountable for what he allegedly told them.

The allegations stem from a leaked audio tape in which Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif claimed that while secretary of state, Kerry discussed more than 200 operations that Israel had carried out in Syria against Iranian targets. This revelation comes after Kerry held additional meetings with Zarif as a private citizen during the Trump administration.

Kerry, who currently serves as President Joe Biden's special U.N. envoy for climate, has denied the claims, labeling them "unequivocally false."

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) recently appeared on Fox News and expressed grave concerns about the allegations. "That would be a major foreign policy catastrophe for the country if it were revealed to be true," said Rubio. "He's got to stick to the climate stuff.

"We've got to be very careful that we don't have this guy sticking his nose into any of the work happening with Iran, even though I'm not sure that the people working on Iran now would be much better. But you hope at the minimum they wouldn't be betraying allies."

And Senator Marsha Blackburn (R- Tennessee) shared those same concerns on Fox.

"What really worries me a good bit is how you could see these despotic regimes emboldened to push back on the United States," said the GOP lawmaker. "They know that China is there to help them; they know that Russia is there to help them."

Both senators believe the allegations merit an investigation. "If it indeed is proven to be accurate, then John Kerry should seriously consider resignation," Blackburn added.

Mike Pompeo, former secretary of state under President Donald Trump, has described Kerry's reported actions as dangerous.

According to Media Research Center, major news networks have largely ignored the allegations against Kerry. "Instead of covering that major story," says MRC, "all three of the major broadcast networks gushed about the Oscars and how woke they were."
