(Natural News) If you still believe that the Democrat Party is first and foremost concerned about protecting and defending America, put that idea completely out of your head.
It's demonstrably false.
If Democrats aren't thwarting every single effort by the Trump administration and most Republicans to shore up security along the U.S.-Mexico border and shut down the importation of potentially dangerous migrants, they are activity undermining the president of the United States as he and his national security team attempt to deal decisively with an avowed adversary: Iran.
In May 2018, reports noted that John Kerry, who succeeded crooked Hillary Clinton as head of the State Department, had been in frequent contact with the leaders of the terrorism-supporting Iranian regime as POTUS Trump was considering pulling the United States out of the "nuclear deal." (Related: Kerry whines after Trump pulls U.S. out of 'horrible' Iran nuke deal and POTUS back-hands him.)
At the time, Trump blasted Kerry's actions as blatantly illegal, per the Logan Act, which "is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States," an online description of the law states. "Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization."
Now, thanks to reporting from The Daily Beast, we learn that a cabal of former Obama administration officials has been in regular contact with the Iranian regime, undermining the Trump administration:
As the Trump administration sent warplanes and an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, a small group of former Obama administration officials reached out to their contacts in the Iranian government, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. Their message to Iran: Don't take Trump's bait. Stay calm.
Iran is our enemy, flat out — this behavior is treasonous
In addition, the website noted that congressional Democrats were in on the meddling and 'counseling' as well:
Three Obama officials who worked closely on the Iran nuclear deal, one of whom is still in touch with Iranian government officials, traveled to Capitol Hill to brief congressional Democrats about the situation.
"It's not just about what they were saying to the Iranians," an aide told the Beast. "It's about what they were saying to their political allies back here in the U.S. Their strategy was to divide and isolate the Trump administration just as the Trump administration was trying to re-establish deterrence with Iran. In the current highly partisan political environment, the only safe course is to signal national unity — and they contributed to eroding that at home and abroad."
