The word “treason” has been thrown around rather loosely over the last year or two, so we’re not going to add another log to that particular bonfire, but damn if former Secretary of State John Kerry wasn’t flirting with it. The meddlesome crank, responsible for one of the worst deals in the history of the United States – the Iran nuclear agreement – apparently told one of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ associated to go back to the Middle East with a special message: Don’t trust Trump, play for time, and wait out his White House tenure.
In other words, while Trump was trying to make fresh headway in the negotiations for peace, Kerry was off in London doing everything in his power to thwart him.
From Fox News:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly tried to meddle in Middle East peace talks, allegedly telling a close associate of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas not to “yield to President Trump’s demands.”
Israeli news outlet Maariv reported on the apparent meeting between Kerry and Hussein Agha in London, where the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee also reportedly floated a possible encore bid in 2020.
But in the conversation, Kerry reportedly told Agha to share a message with Abbas – urging him to “hold on and be strong” during talks with the Trump administration and “play for time … [and] not yield to President Trump’s demands.”
Kerry, who served as former President Barack Obama’s secretary of state during his second term, also reportedly told Agha that Trump would not be in office for long, suggesting he could be out in a year.
We’re not sure if we believe this report – it’s almost too stunning to comprehend – but if it’s true, then Kerry can forget about making another run for the White House. We’d be surprised if his campaign could gain any particular traction in the first place, but if he was outed as doing something as sickeningly un-American as this? Yeah, no. You don’t go behind the president’s back and tell foreign leaders to resist negotiating with the current administration. You don’t tell them that Trump is going to be gone by the end of the year. This is just…unreal.
And yet, at the same time, it does have the ring of truth to it, as hard as it may be to believe. Kerry and Obama are watching Trump quickly erase all of the nation-killing initiatives their administration cooked up, and now they’re desperate to save their legacies. As much as we’d like to believe that they were patriots at the end of the day, they gave us plenty of reasons to doubt it. Would Kerry do something THIS traitorous? God help us, we wouldn’t put it past him.
