For people who like to reference the Logan Act so often, ‘the Resistance’ invests a lot of time running interference against our duly-elected officials.
This time, we’re seeing them meddling in the Middle East.
Whatever happened to that ‘smooth transition of power’ Hillary and Co spoke so highly up to October 2016?
Kerry was once remembered for his involvement in the Winter Soldier testimony, where veteran Paul Galanti said this about him:
John Kerry gave the enemy for free, what I and many of my comrades, in the North Vietnamese prison camps, took torture to avoid saying. It demoralized us.
…“John Kerry was a traitor,” he said, adding the “definition of treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy in the time of war.”
Kerry’s convictions led him to side WITH the enemy and AGAINST the American government.
Then he ran for President. Then he was Secretary of State.
And then… Trump took office. And the #Resistance was born.
People who had tried to invoke the Logan Act to discredit the Trump Team (even during the transition) and who were upset that Trump spoke with world leaders, indicating what policy would be like after the baton was passed to him, suddenly din’t mind working at cross purposes with the elected representatives of our Constitutional Republic.
The only possible explanation is that they believe their political agenda is more important than the express will of ‘We The People’.
Kerry got his nose out of joint when Trump resumed warm relations with Israel. Particularly when Trump said our Embassy would be relocating to Israel’s capital.
Newt is giving him the benefit of the doubt… but others are not.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said it would be “stunningly unpatriotic” if John Kerry told Palestinian officials that they should not give into President Trump’s demands because he won’t be in the White House long.
Kerry, former secretary of state, reportedly told a close associate of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to “hold on and be strong.”
“[Tell Abbas] that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands,” Kerry said, according to Maariv, a newspaper in Israel.
Kerry added that he doesn’t expect Trump will be in office within a year.
Gingrich said as a former secretary of state, Kerry knows giving such advice would be “anti-American.”
“That kind of advice would be stunningly unpatriotic,” Gingrich told “Fox and Friends” Thursday. “And I don’t think John Kerry would do something like that. I hope he wouldn’t … I would be very surprised if secretary of state Sen. John Kerry would have said anything that was overtly anti-American.”

Another news source in Israel went further:
According to the report, which has been confirmed by senior PA officials, Kerry has continued to meet with Hussein Agha, a confidant of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas who served as an interlocutor for Kerry and the PA leader during Kerry’s four years as America’s top diplomat.
…[Abbas] should stay strong in his spirit and play for time,” Kerry reportedly said, adding that the PA leader should show President Trump that he will “not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands.”
The former Secretary of State also suggested the PA formulate its own peace plan.
“Maybe it is time for the Palestinians to define their peace principles and present a positive plan.”
Kerry further offered to help build international support for an alternative peace plan, circumventing the US, which has traditionally played the role of broker in peace talks between Israel and the Arab world.
‘Circumventing the US’, he said.
As Hot Air pointed out:
If Bob Mueller can bring FARA back from the dead to indict Paul Manafort, surely Jeff Sessions can bring the Logan Act back from the dead to put an end to Waffles’s freelance diplomatic career.
And we might have the ‘pleasure’ of seeing Kerry run again in 2020.
So, why is connecting with Abbas from the Palestinian Authority ‘problematic’? Actually, yes.
Even during the Obama administration, it was determined by Federal Courts that both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority were Terrorist Organizations.
Abbas isn’t really committed to peace. You can tell by how he honors ‘Martyrs’ who murdered civilians, including children on busses.
So, to put this story in perspective, former Secretary of State, John Kerry met privately with a terrorist organization because he disapproved of the Duly-Elected President’s foreign policy with Israel, our ally.
Out of curiosity, what is the legal threshold for ‘aid and comfort’ these days, anyway?
