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.
