All hell is breaking loose in Washington.
Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry is now in the middle of a massive scandal.
And a leaked secret audio tape implicated John Kerry in this criminal act.
The New York Times published accounts of secret audio recordings of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.
Buried deep down in the 22nd paragraph of a 26-paragraph story, the Times reported that John Kerry divulged to a stunned Zarif that Israel attacked Iranian assets in Syria at least 200 times.
“Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Mr. Zarif said,” the Times reported.
Republicans in Congress demanded Kerry resign over his act to stab an American ally in the back to the benefit of Iran by revealing Israel’s covert military actions.
Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan declared in a Senate floor speech that he was so disturbed by Kerry’s treachery that he would do something he had never done before which was call for someone to resign.
“I don’t do this lightly. In my entire time in the Senate, I’ve never called for anyone’s resignation,” Sullivan stated. “But his record, John Kerry’s record, of undermining working families and working against American national security interests was too much to bear. He needs to go.
“When I read this today, I was astonished as well that a former secretary of State, now a member of President Biden’s National Security Council … would reveal the secrets of one of our most important and enduring allies in the region to an avowed enemy,” Sullivan continued.
Sullivan’s colleague Florida Senator Rick Scott also demanded Kerry step down.
“The allegations involving @JohnKerry are deeply disturbing. If true, he must resign,” Scott wrote on social media.
New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik went even further claiming John Kerry broke the law and should face criminal prosecution.
“This is a criminal act and John Kerry must be immediately investigated and PROSECUTED. President Biden must immediately remove John Kerry from any government or advisory position,” Stefanik wrote.
For his part, Kerry denied the story.
“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,” Kerry posted on Twitter.
That denial was hard to square with the Times’ account.
The foundation of the story was an audio recording where Kerry is either on tape saying what was reported or he was not.
For the Times to be wrong they would have to have fabricated the conversation.
And while the Times had run fake news stories based on fabrications, those were stories about Donald Trump and Russia.
Left-wing outlets like The New York Times’ mistakes all run in one direction—against Republicans—so critics do not treat Kerry’s denial with much weight.
Had this story been about a Republican, a special prosecutor would have been appointed by the time it took anyone to read the story and the FBI would have launched a warrantless spying operation against that Republican and then leaked the contents of what the wiretaps picked up to friendly outlets.
But since John Kerry is a Democrat, the Times tucked the scoop of John Kerry’s treachery all the way at the bottom of the story in the hopes that no one would think it was a big deal because of its placement in the story or simply not see it because they did not read all the way to the end.
