18 US Code § 953 I will just leave this here. Google it. Illegal for private citizens to conduct diplomacy on behalf of the U.S. DOJ should charge John Kerry

As if Republican politicians haven't been chicken hawks for a war with Iran for decades now. Don't pretend this is a one sided issue where poor America is the victim because surely is not.

Possibly but not a violation of the logan act.

Maybe try reading it.


That is a pretty low blow.

Sorry, I didn't realize reading was that hard for you.

maybe, but he was an elected official in a position of gov and he was speaking here in the US

Kerry is not, and is conducting talks with a foreign gov on behalf of the US gov

I know it may be hard to understand, but they are two totally different things

It's a good thing that we have enough war refugees to dig out ours, but I'd prefer something easy with epic loot boxes. Nukes, you need more nukes!

"I think I've seen him three or four times," Kerry said, adding that he has been conducting sensitive diplomacy without the current administration's authorization. Kerry said he has criticized the current administration in these discussions, chiding it for not pursuing negotiations from Iran, despite the country's fevered rhetoric about the U.S. president.

To answer your question, Kerry said he was negotiating and "conducting sensitive diplomacy" and on top of that criticizing the duly elected POTUS to a foreign leader

However, if your name is Trump and you happen to be the lawfully chosen President elect of the United States, and you talk about a meeting with another duly elected leader, namely Valdamir Putin, you are automatically accused of engaging in unlawful activity and subject to fanatical cries of impeachment. Makes sense to me, as long as I don't think for myself.

Reposted for truth!

I just don't get it. What has the US turned into.

A rogue nation by anyones observation.

Define Rogue?

Only the US and Saudi Arabia are permitted to stir up the pot in the Middle East?

Gotta keep the oil and petrodollars flowing.

Never mind the human cost in casualties.

The whole world has seen what happens when you dont fall into the Rothschild Central Bank fold.

Any number of reasons will be "trumped up" to invade a sovereign nation.

Whatabout a convincing speech on the desperate call for freedom from St. Guiliani himself?

You can do it!

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. Logan Act - Wikipedia

Yup, sounds about right.


It's like Kerry is defying or maybe daring Trump to prosecute him; thinking that will never happen. Man I wish Trump would call his bluff and "Just Do It!"

Not the first time he has met illegally with a foreign power.
I expect much like the last time nothing will happen.

He has said he is negotiating with them out his own mouth and yes it is illegal only thing he has any right to negotiate about is how much Heinz ketchup they want and price for it by the ton. Current SOS needs to send marshals to pick him up on violating Logan act because doj and fbi will not do diddly.

I get the feeling that there is more to the story than you account for.

He is not authorized to negotiate on behalf of the usa nor has he claimed to be an official representing the usa.

Therefore he is free to talk. Many call it freedom.
