New documents released under the Freedom of Information Act shows former members of the Obama administration -including John Kerry- held “secret” meetings with Iranian leaders when Donald Trump was in the White House.
“In a shocking finding from our FOIA lawsuit, we unearthed that former Obama-Biden officials were conducting secret meetings with Iran during the time that President Trump was in office,” posted Jay Sekulow on Twitter.
From the ACLJ:
We launched a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the State Department, seeking records of State Department awareness of or involvement with Obama-era U.S. officials – aka, the Deep State – employing undercover backchannels in an effort to undercut President Trump’s cornerstone foreign policy of withdrawing the United States from the disastrous Obama/Biden Iran Deal.
This is precisely why we sent this FOIA request: to uncover actions of then-former U.S. diplomats – those who worked for the Obama-Biden Administration but who then went to work undermining President Trump and the core policies he campaigned on and succeeded. Kerry himself admitted his part in this scheme. And here we obtained a memo showing just that: an off-the-record meeting between Zarif and “former” U.S. diplomats right in the middle of the Trump Administration and during the time President Trump was working through the aftermath of withdrawing the United States from the farce known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the Iran nuclear deal.
