Former Secretary of State Jon Kerry might soon be finding himself under investigation after telling a close aid to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas not to listen to President Trump.
According to the latest reports form the Jerusalem Post, Kerry told the aid to 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 [Donald] Trump’s demands.”
He then went on to say that he did not believe that Trump would remain in the White House for much longer, and that the Palestinians simply need to wait him out.
It doesn’t end there, however. Kerry also told the aid to ask President Abbas “to concentrate on personal attacks on Trump himself, whom Kerry says is solely and directly responsible for the situation,” and ” promised to help garner international support from Europeans, Arab states and the international community” to create an alternative peace process.

If you haven’t guessed it already, this is treasonous behavior. Inciting a foreign government to launch personal attacks against the President of the United States is nothing short of criminal, and proposing to create a separate peace process completely violates the Logan Act, which prevents private citizens from negotiating on behalf of the government.
And Dems are no stranger to the Logan Act, so pleading ignorance doesn’t fit: they tried to convict Gen. Flynn of violating the act just last year for communicating with the Russians, so they know all about the fact that this kind of activity is strictly prohibited by law.
Here is John Kerry in a flagrant violation of the Logan Acthttps://t.co/iiCtN0pDJY

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was among the first to bash Kerry for his actions, calling them “stunningly unpatriotic” and “overtly un-American” during an appearance on Fox and Friends. His thoughts were shared by thousands of others across social media, who quickly joined in on calling out the former secretary.
We can only hope that Kerry will receive punishment for his actions. After all, the Logan Act does prescribe three years imprisonment or a fine for this kind of behavior. But then again, the law never seems to apply to the left, so it seems unlikely that anything at all will come of this without some major public outrage first.
