It’s On: Pompeo Slams John Kerry From the State Department for 'Unseemly' Efforts to Undermine America With Iran

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held a press conference at the State Department Friday afternoon to officially condemn former Secretary of State John Kerry for working to undermine U.S. national security. 

Kerry has been engaged in shadow diplomacy by meeting with Iranian officials and former Obama administration officials to thwart President Trump's policies towards the regime. Specifically, he's trying to save the Iran nuclear agreement, which was ended by President Trump earlier this year. Cortney reported on the details earlier this week:

Former Secretary of State John Kerry made a few admissions in his interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt Wednesday. One revelation generating a lot of buzz is that, unbeknownst to President Trump, he has met with Iranian officials in recent months to try and save the Iranian nuclear deal, signed by President Obama in 2015.

Kerry has met with Iranian Former Minister Javad Zarif three or four times, while Trump took America out of the nuclear deal in May.

"I think I've seen him three or four times," Kerry told Hewitt.
