Biden’s climate czar John Kerry, who is also a former Secretary of State, is now getting slammed for allegedly leaking intel about Israel to Iran’s Foreign Minister.
Kerry denies this allegation, and the White House is not making any public comments, but GOP lawmakers are pushing for an investigation. Some are saying that Kerry should resign if the accusations are proven true.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton (AR) wants to ask Kerry some questions about these claims in a “private hearing,” while GOP Senators Dan Sullivan (AK), Rick Scott (FL), and Marsha Blackburn (TN) all are requesting that Kerry consider resignation.

Two House GOP members, Jim Banks (IL) and Elise Stefanik (NY), called for Kerry to be removed even before any probe.
“This is a crime and John Kerry should be prosecuted., Stefanik said on Twitter. “President Biden must remove him from any government position.” Banks said that Kerry must resign “immediately” and that the investigation would be “retrospective.”
Two former officials in the Trump White House, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, also urged Kerry to share information on the accusations.
“Secretary Kerry, will you explain why you gave information about Israeli operations to Iranian officials? We have known for years you were helping them. Americans deserve the truth., Pompeo said on Twitter.
Haley demanded that both Biden and Kerry explain themselves for “tipping off Iran” and betraying Israel.
“Kerry and Biden must answer for why Kerry tipped off Iran, the top supporter of terror, while betraying one of our allies, Israel” Haley said on Twitter.
