On Thursday, President Donald said John Kerry “should be prosecuted” because he violated the “Logan act” by speaking with Iran.

Retired Rear Admiral John Kirby told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that Trump’s comments would be “laughable” if he weren’t the Commander-In-Chief.

“So the president is just standing up there and totally wrong?” Baldwin said.

“It’s just a ridiculous claim,” Kirby said. “It would be laughable if it wasn’t coming from the Commander-In-Chief of the United States of America. Secretary Kerry like every other living former Secretary of State maintains relationships with his counterparts around the world.”

“He has valuable relationships that frankly this administration and any administration should want him to have,” he added. “And he advised Mike Pompeo about those conversations. So the idea that he’s having illegal meetings are just wrong. The idea that it is improper for him to speak to his foreign counterparts is not only wrong but potentially dangerous for our foreign policy future.”

Published

On the eve of the Nevada caucuses, former Vice President Joe Biden, who has referred to himself as "middle-class Joe," had a last-minute chance to connect with middle-class Nevada voters before Saturday's caucuses. At a barbecue with burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream sandwiches, attendees that included firefighters and iron workers gathered for what was advertised as a precinct captain training — or to simply hear Biden's pitch. Indeed, many attendees of the barbecue were still undecided a mere day before caucusing.

Trump’s NSC is ignoring intelligence reports and basing policy on handouts of Trump’s tweets: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, members of the National Security Council under Donald Trump no longer uses their extensive knowledge of international relations, politics, and history to formulate foreign policy security proposals for the president's review -- and are instead using the president's tweets to make policy based upon his desires and social media proclamations.
