Trump Calls For Prosecuting John Kerry Under Logan Act: He Has Been Telling Iran Not To Call Me [VIDEO]

Newsweek reports:

President Donald Trump acknowledged the United States was “risking military confrontation” with Iran and said former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry should be prosecuted under the Logan Act for interfering with potential negotiations with Tehran.

Trump repeatedly accused the former Obama administration secretary of state of violating the Logan Act—a federal law dating back to 1799 which criminalizes negotiations by unauthorized persons with foreign governments currently in dispute with the United States.

“What I’d like to see with Iran, I’d like to see them call me,” Trump said Thursday. “You know John Kerry speaks to them a lot, John Kerry tells them not to call. That’s a violation of the Logan Act.”
