Democrats are desperate to hang onto whatever fragments of Obama’s legacy they can salvage. They have been particularly protective of Obama’s Iran deal. As it turns out, John Kerry has even been doing some behind the scenes work, meeting with foreign leaders. This does not look good.

Report: John Kerry Recently Met With Iranian Official in Attempt to Save Iran Nuclear Deal
A Boston Globe report came out Friday evening that former Secretary of State John Kerry has recently met with an Iranian official in order to save President Obama’s signature Iran nuclear deal. This raises serious concerns that Kerry violated the Logan Act by meeting with a foreign official.
From Boston Globe:
“John Kerry’s bid to save one of his most significant accomplishments as secretary of state took him to New York on a Sunday afternoon two weeks ago, where, more than a year after he left office, he engaged in some unusual shadow diplomacy with a top-ranking Iranian official.
He sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program. It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.
This is actually very serious. Kerry may have broken the law.
Kerry making quiet play to save Iran deal with foreign leaders: report. I'm waiting for the Left to scream treason and for Sally Yates to invoke the Logan Act and demand a criminal investigation. https://t.co/uxsfwIFTHA
