Current Special Climate Envoy, John Kerry, is under fire for allegedly leaking details of covert operations conducted by Israel.
Numerous media outlets have obtained audio with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claiming that Kerry informed him of over 200 operations in Syria during his time under the Obama Administration. According to the New York Times, Zarif was shocked when Kerry allegedly passed on the classified information. At that time, Kerry would’ve been serving as Secretary of State, which sets the stage for suspicion that the recording and claims could be authentic. Kerry has denied the allegations saying they’re “unequivocally false.” We’ve also received no verification or comment from the Department of State.
“That we don’t comment on purportedly leaked material, of course we can’t vouch for the authenticity of it, for the accuracy of it, and so of course I’m not going to comment directly on what’s on that tape on that recording,” said Department of State official, Ned Ryan. Kerry was earlier accused of collusion with Iran against Former President Donald Trump. With these new allegations, Republicans are calling for Kerry to resign, labeling him a traitor. “It’s unfathomable that any U.S. diplomat, past or present, would leak intelligence to the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism at the expense of one of our staunchest allies. If this report is accurate and he did leak intelligence, John Kerry should resign,” Tweeted Representative Mike Gallagher.
