Former Secretary of State John Kerry throws a fit on Fox News during an interview when asked to respond to comments made by President Trump about what happened in Iran.
Kerry and Senator Chris Murphy violated the "Logan Act" because Murphy secretly met with Iran. Watch below for the whole interview.
More from Breitbart:
Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” former Secretary of State John Kerry reacted to President Donald Trump accusing him and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) of violating the Logan Act after Murphy said he had recently met with Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
In a tweet earlier in the day, Trump said the two “grossly violated the Logan Act,” noting there would be “very serious ramifications” if it had been done by Republicans.
John Kerry and Senator Chris Murphy grossly violated the Logan Act with respect to Iran. If a Republican did what they did, there would be very serious ramifications!

Kerry calls it, “another presidential lie”
“That is once again another presidential lie, a complete effort by the president to distort reality,”
“If Trump knew anything about the law, he’d know I didn’t negotiate with anybody. I did what every senator and secretaries of state in history have done, which is continue to go to conferences abroad or have meetings in order to be well-informed. We engaged in no negotiation.”
Kerry then called on Trump to “focus” on his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
“What he ought to do is focus on somebody called Rudy Giuliani who’s been out there engaged in very direct negotiations in an effort to try to do a subterfuge foreign policy,” Kerry told host Ed Henry.
President Trump was referring to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo catching the former Secretary of State meeting with officials from Iran in 2019.
“It’s true. I was there in Munich … I saw not only Kerry … [others] met with the Iranian leadership,” Pompeo said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends.” “It’s unusual, but more importantly, it’s wrong.”
It was suspected by the Trump administration that Kerry was trying to engage in talks with Iran to salvage the horrible Iranian nuclear deal that former President Obama signed without Congressional approval.
“What I would like to see with Iran, I would like to see them call me. John Kerry, he speaks to them a lot. John Kerry tells them not to call. That is a violation of the Logan Act. And frankly, he should be prosecuted on that,” Trump said.
