(TargetLiberty.org) – A senior official in the Biden administration is facing pressure to resign after a leaked recording claims he discussed Israeli military operations with the Iranian regime. John Kerry, currently President Biden’s climate envoy and previously Barack Obama’s secretary of state, allegedly passed details of over 200 Israeli ops to his Iranian counterpart. Now, leaders want him to be investigated.
On April 25, a tape leaked to the New York Times exposed secret discussions inside the Iranian government, including a sensational claim by foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that Kerry had astonished him by sharing information about hundreds of Israeli operations in Syria against Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
There have already been questions about Kerry’s relationship with Zarif – after leaving office in 2017, he had several private meetings with the Iranian – but the latest revelations have shocked Republicans and supporters of Israel. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on Monday that an investigation is called for and Kerry should consider resigning. Meanwhile Mort Klein, of the Zionist Organization of America, also called for an investigation – and added, “If these egregious allegations are true, we believe Mr. Kerry should be fired.”
