Skip to comments.Disclosed: How Obama Administration Officials Conducted Shadow Diplomacy With Iran To Undermine Trump
Posted on 05/26/2022 3:11:36 PM PDT by DFG
Senior Obama administration officials engaged in a secret meeting with Iran in 2018 as part of an effort to undermine the Trump administration's diplomatic push to isolate the hardline regime, according to an internal State Department document.
As the Trump administration worked to increase economic pressure on Iran in 2018, a delegation of "U.S. former ambassadors," including John Kerry, held a secret, "off-the-record" meeting with former Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif at his residence in New York City, according to a State Department memo unearthed this week as part of a lawsuit brought to compel the release of this information.
The internal memo, which is marked unclassified, details how these former U.S. ambassadors conducted shadow diplomacy with Iran's top envoy surrounding "nuclear weapons, potential prisoner swaps, [the] Afghanistan withdrawal, and negotiations with the Taliban," according to the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a legal advocacy group that sued the State Department to obtain the internal memo.
The document is the firmest proof to date that Obama-era officials were engaged in back-channel efforts to keep negotiations with Iran alive, even as former president Donald Trump and his administration worked to isolate the regime, former secretary of state Mike Pompeo told the Free Beacon in exclusive remarks. Pompeo, who was not aware of these meetings while leading the State Department, said the memo corroborates reports from the time about Kerry's efforts to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal through back-channel powwows with Iranian officials.

Absolutely, it can’t be anything other than Treason, something John Kerry is quite familiar with.
Blindfold. Last cigarette. Loud noises.
So, where the hell are the treason charges?
The sooner this piece of stinking traitorous excrement is publicly HUNG, the better off our country will be. Ditto Soros, Gates, and Zuckerberg. They represent real danger to the U.S.
You forgot, Up against the wall.
More sedition rises to the surface like fetid gas in a swamp
and the stink once again comes from 0bunghole the Usurper.
Set up the Gallows right outside the Capitol
Did he just now hear about it in the news like everyone else? (cough, cough)
It doesn’t matter since even if Trump gets reelected, he won’t have the top echelon of the democrat party arrested, he won’t have Obama or Hillary executed for their crimes, he won’t clean up the thousands of commies in academia and the entertainment industry, and he won’t deport between 30 and 50 million foreign nationals illegally residing on our soil. He’ll serve his four years trying in vain to clean up the mess, and then it will go right back to a freefall towards oblivion. It’s like hoping that a new Emperor in 380 AD will miraculously save the Roman Empire. Ain’t gonna happen. So suck it all up and enjoy the ride down the tubes of history because that’s where we’re going.
I distinctly recall right here on FR we brought up the fact Hillary, Kerry, Obama and others were continuing to operate with International Leaders as they frequently went abroad for so called visist. We knew then they weren’t stopping by to just say hello as they met with various heads of states - there is no doubt there were two governing bodies operating throughout Trumps Term .....and the same people are still operating in this administration.....they never stopped.
Good parallel. The forces of "out of control" are too big, numerous, and dispersed. Even 100% turnover of the supposed "in control" institutions (POTUS, Congress) would not stop the inevitable.
Great time to be alive! Invigorating!

Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and other Democratic senators had a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif during the Munich Security Conference last week, according to a source briefed by the French delegation to the conference. Murphy’s office did not respond to repeated requests for comment by press time. Such a meeting would mean Murphy had done the type of secret coordination with foreign leaders to potentially undermine the U.S. government that he accused Trump officials of doing as they prepared for Trump’s administration. In February 2017, Murphy demanded investigations of National Security Advisor Mike Flynn because...
I think that Obama and company have violated a lot of
government no-nos since leaving office.
His shadow government involvement should warrant him quite
a spell in prison.
Imagine if Trump were direction a puppet behind the scene.
