Joe Biden ‘climate czar’ John Kerry is accused of leaking sensitive information to Iran about the important American ally Israel.
Now some Republicans in the Senate are demanding that Kerry resign.
If this had happened on Trump’s watch, the media would join Democrats in demanding a resignation.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Senate Republicans step up pressure on Kerry to resign over alleged leak to Iran
Senate Republicans piled on the pressure for President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry to resign on Tuesday after a report revealed the former secretary of state talked to Iranian officials about military actions of the United States’s ally Israel.
The New York Times reported Sunday that the London-based news channel Iran International had privately recorded conversations between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and an economist. “Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Mr. Zarif said,” according to the New York Times.
Kerry disputed that he ever had these conversations with Zarif discussing the Israeli strikes in Syria. Nevertheless, Kerry’s denials did not stop the barrage of calls for his resignation from Republicans to roll in.
Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, scolded Kerry, telling the Washington Examiner, “He should have never been appointed in the first place. He’s been a disaster in this role, and I think what we found out, what he did as secretary of state, is absolutely wrong, and he should resign.”
Kerry should step down.
If it’s true John Kerry tipped off Iran and exposed Israel, he should not serve in government for a minute longer

Israel is our ally.
Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism.
John Kerry must be investigated immediately.

'John Kerry must resign if allegations are true.'
Senator Rick Scott states, "Until we have clarity and know the truth, President Biden must remove John Kerry from all access to and briefings on national security intelligence." https://t.co/NCREPqffU2 pic.twitter.com/dugNbiMyZI

On a related note, why is John Kerry so obsessed with Iran?
