Pompeo Smacks Down John Kerry: Iranian Meetings ‘Unseemly’ and ‘Beyond Inappropriate’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo excoriated his predecessor John Kerry at a State Department briefing on Friday for his “unseemly and unprecedented” behavior.

In response to a reporter’s request for comment on Kerry’s multiple meetings with Iranian officials since leaving office, Pompeo said, “What Secretary Kerry has done is unseemly and unprecedented. This is a former secretary of state engaged with the world’s largest state sponsor of terror and, according to him… he was talking to them, he was telling them to wait out this administration.”
