Report: John Kerry allegedly spotted dining with Iranian regime officials, overheard trashing Trump

On Sunday, Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit said that former Secretary of State John Kerry, who, by the way, served in Vietnam, was spotted dining with three Iranian officials in Paris, citing a tweet by Jason Osborne, a former senior advisor to the Trump presidential campaign.

“So John Kerry just left a meeting @ L’Avenue in Paris w/3 Iranians. A friend was sitting next to their table and heard JK blasting . The Iranians had a 5 person security detail and left in diplomatic vehicles. Is he FARA registered?” Osborne tweeted.

Naturally, the photo would have more impact if it showed Kerry’s face, but it is what it is.

Jack Posobiec later issued a tweet with what he said were photos of the three Iranians said to have met with Kerry.

“New photos emerge of 3 Iranians who held secret meeting with John Kerry yesterday in Paris,” he said.

One of those individuals was reportedly identified as Kamal Kharazi, an Iranian politician who served as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1997 to 2005.

Iranian state media called the reports “lies,” but Alavi, a human rights activist and writer, said: “Considering my knowledge of the Iranian regime, this strong denial – choired in a large number of regime outlets – makes me even more suspicious.”

The second person, Hoft said, was identified as Iran’s ambassador to France:

Laura Rozen, Al-Monitor’s diplomatic correspondent based in Washington, D.C., however, said that a spokesperson for Kerry said no such meeting took place.

She went on to suggest the person taking the photo probably works with a company linked to former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski:

It’s no secret that Kerry has been working to undermine Trump’s foreign policy, especially with regards to the Iranian nuclear deal.  As we and others reported, some are now saying that Iran is threatening to unmask the names of western politicians who were reportedly bribed to enact the deal in the first place.

Earlier this month, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., suggested using the Logan Act against Kerry:

As the Washington Examiner noted: “The Logan Act is a more than 200-year-old law under which no one has ever been prosecuted, that prohibits private citizens from acting on behalf of the U.S. in disputes with foreign governments.”
