Why the John Kerry Iran Leak Matters
Behind the shine of the big headlines this week, some important information has been leaked
to the public sphere. With Biden busy speaking to congress on his 1.8 trillion dollar plan for the
future, WAPO busy doing fact checks on Tim Scott and the media busy parading around the raid on
Rudy Guiliani, you may have missed the revelation of a national security issue with one of the
wealthiest members of the current Biden administration.
This week, John Kerry, the current U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former
chair of the Committee on Foreign Relations and former Secretary of State, was caught sharing
government secrets with the number one state sponsor of terrorism, Iran.
In audio leaked to London based Iran International and The New York Times, Iran’s foreign
minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is speaking with a journalist to say, “It was former U.S. Foreign
Secretary John Kerry who told me Israel had launched more than 200 attacks on Iranian forces in
In response, John Kerry sent out a tweet on April 26th against the leak saying, “I can tell you
that this story and these allegations are unequivocally false. This never happened – either when I was
secretary of state or since.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, when asked about the incident, replied “we’re not
gonna comment on leaked tapes.”
Some Democrats at the Department of State say the leak isn’t true, citing that the
information itself may have been public at the time. Even with this, the New York Times reporting
suggests that Zarif learned of Israel’s actions from speaking with Kerry.
All of this while the recently censored New York Post headline reads, “John Kerry is skirting
the line of treason with Iran.”
Within 24 hours of responses to the leak, the U.S. Navy was forced to fire warning shots at
Iranian vessels in the Persian Gulf over potential threats. With tensions in the area increasing rapidly,
should our government be choosing to support our enemies desires over the wants and needs of our
With a third round of talks set to begin this week on reviving the former Iran Nuclear deal
which gave billions of dollars to Iran, the leak reveals a rift between the direction of the Trump
administration with the Abraham Accords and the direction of the Biden administration with the talks
of a new deal. Why is there seemingly a desire to give support, money and even key information to,
again, the number one state sponsor of terrorism on Earth?
On the 2015 deal with Iran, President Trump had stated in a January 2020 speech, “Iran’s
hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran Nuclear Deal was signed in 2013 and they
were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash… Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded
by the money from the deal and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq. The
missiles fired… at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last
Now the Biden administration, with the help of Kerry, wants to establish a new deal with Iran,
despite history in the region. The leak shows that members of the current administration were
actively working behind the scenes to continually build up relations in the region to further fund a
foreign adversary in the future, despite knowing that the money and knowledge was actively being
used against our best of allies.
Top Republican of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Michael Mccaul from Texas says, “if
this is true, this reporting is incredibly concerning… relaying some sensitive information to the
number one state sponsor of terrorism is just unfathomable.”
Senator Dan Sullivan called these actions the “last straw” on Larry Kudlow’s Fox Business
and is joining 17 Senators who have written letters to the director of the FBI requesting immediate
investigation into the leak.
On Hannity’s show, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, ““While I was briefing
President Trump, Kerry was briefing Zarif… I hope that is not true” to which Hannity later asks, “Isn’t
there a real reason that the Israelis, the U.S., the Egyptians, Jordanians, the Saudis have united
against Iranian hegemony? What part of this does Joe Biden, John Kerry, Kamala Harris not get?”
The question now is, does Joe Biden believe it is ok to have a man in the White House who
knowingly leaks information to foreign adversaries on proven allies?
What are the implications of such an approval? Does Biden agree with actions like this?
By the end of this work week today, the press is currently running with new information of
John Kerry releasing a disclosure on his income and what assets he will be dissolving to take on his
new role at the White House. It is worth noting that Kerry made a fortune from speaking around the
world paid by the likes of Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, Ukranian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, Duke
Energy, Cimarex, Dominion Energy, Exelon Corporation, Valero Energy, The Rise Fund and Climate
Finance Partners. Big money from big oil and big business until it better suits the situation to be big
green energy and big government.
The lesson here is to not let disclosures of wealth distract you from disclosures of what
people are attempting to accomplish with that wealth. As connections arise in the public sphere, so
should the questions moving forward.John Kerry leaking information to Iran about Israel matters.
