Senators Demand Answers On John Kerry’s Alleged Use Of Alias Email

Whistleblowers have reported that former Secretary of State John Kerry used a false government email address during his tenure in the Obama administration. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) have raised concerns in a letter to current Secretary of State Antony Blinken, as reported by Fox News. The letter seeks clarification on Kerry’s compliance with federal records laws.

The whistleblowers claimed that Kerry used the email address “[email protected]” while he was Secretary of State. Grassley and Johnson are demanding to know if Kerry followed all federal records regulations and if FOIA requests have appropriately included this email in their responses.

“We want to know whether then-Secretary Kerry properly complied with all federal records laws and regulations with respect to his official email communications and whether responses to relevant Freedom of Information Act requests have properly included that email address in productions to requestors,” the senators stated.

This claim follows a series of incidents where high-ranking Democratic officials allegedly failed to adhere to federal records laws. Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her term as Secretary of State became a significant issue in the 2016 presidential election. Additionally, it has been revealed that Joe Biden used several non-government email addresses while serving as vice president.

Grassley and Johnson criticized the current administration for not addressing Biden’s compliance with federal records laws. They have asked Blinken to explain how the State Department archived Kerry’s email correspondences from the alias account and whether the email was used for official purposes.

The senators have set a deadline of July 1st for Secretary Blinken to respond to their letter.
