WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley today joined Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) and 17 colleagues in sending a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to investigate allegations against John Kerry the former secretary of state and current special presidential envoy for climate. The current allegation states that Kerry disclosed covert Israeli actions against Iranian interests in Syria to Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. The allegation comes from an interview with Minister Zarif that was leaked to Iran International, a Persian television channel, before being shared with The New York Times, which wrote an extensive story on the situation.
Kerry currently serves as a member of the National Security Council with access to classified intelligence. The senators called on Biden to suspend Kerry’s access to sensitive information until the investigation is completed.
In addition to Grassley and Sullivan, the letter is signed by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.)
