Fibster Blinken Defends John Kerry from GOP Attacks: ‘Utter Nonsense’

Secretary of State Antony Blinken dismissed allegations that John Kerry leaked covert Israeli military operations to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, calling them “utter nonsense.”

“These things were so secret that they were all reported in the press at the time,” Blinken said in a CNN interview Tuesday. “So it is utter nonsense, and it’s really unfortunate that people continue to try and play politics with this.”

As previously reported by Human Events News, in bombshell leaked audio, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that John Kerry, while he was serving as secretary of state under Obama, spilled hundreds of covert Israeli operations in Syria.

In the audio, Zarif can be heard saying that Kerry notified him that “Israel had launched more than 200 attacks on Iranian forces in Syria.” Zarif doesn’t say when that conversation took place, but republican lawmakers believe Kerry essentially gave a warning to Iran.

“If true, it is despicable. I think we should have a hearing. I doubt my democratic colleagues will call a hearing,” Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said. “So my plan B preference would be to have a classified briefing, and let’s find out what happened.”

Similarly, Sen. Rick Scott of Florida, called for his resignation.

“The allegations involving John Kerry are deeply disturbing,” he said in a statement. “Until we have clarity and know the truth, President Biden must remove John Kerry from all access to and briefings on national security intelligence. If these allegations are true. He must resign.”
