Rubio to Barr: Investigate Kerry Over Iran Talks

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is asking Attorney General William Barr to investigate if former Secretary of State John Kerry broke federal law over his talks with Iranian officials. 

Rubio sent a letter to Barr doubling down on his request for the Justice Department to investigate Kerry, a request he also made last year to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions

“The Department of Justice should therefore make a determination on whether or not former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s recent actions related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran potentially violate the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act,” Rubio wrote in the letter to Barr.

He added that “the American people deserve to know that U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position.”

Rubio’s letter comes after President Trump and Kerry locked horns last week. 

Trump told reporters late last week that Kerry should be prosecuted under the Logan Act for speaking with Iranian officials and criticizing Trump’s policies in Iran.
