John Kerry claims: ‘Not a whiff of scandal during Obama’s eight years’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry told CNN on Friday that during President Barack Obama’s eight years in office, there wasn’t a “whiff of scandal” despite several instances and incidents involving allegations of corruption.

Kerry, who served as Obama’s top diplomat after Hillary Clinton stepped down in 2013 to prepare for her 2016 presidential bid, is backing the 44th president’s second-in-command, Joe Biden, for the 2020 Democratic nomination.



“I find that Joe Biden’s breadth of experience and leadership with any number of issues from the Violence Against Women Act to the Assault Weapons Ban to arms control agreements, to pushing an administration to make peace where it didn’t want to initially be involved, I think those things will really ring strongly against the other candidacies in this race,” Kerry said. “That’s why I’m here.”

“I believe Joe Biden is the only person who has the set of relationships around the world, who has had this unbelievable breadth of experience as Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and then as vice president for eight years, and an administration, by the way, which never had a whiff of scandal,” he added.

Biden himself has been accused of abusing his office as Vice President in his dealings with Ukraine. Republicans and the Trump administration point to a video of him admitting he got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired who was investigating a company employing his son, Hunter, as a board member.

In the video , Biden also says he threatened to withhold $1 billion in foreign aid to the Ukrainians if the then-leader, President Petro Poroshenko, did not fire the prosecutor who was conducting a corruption probe of an energy company called Burisma Holdings.




Also during Obama’s tenure, the “Fast & Furious” scandal erupted involving the ‘walking’ of guns purchased by straw buyers in the U.S. — which is illegal — into Mexico, ostensibly so federal law enforcement agencies could track them to drug cartels.

In addition, Republicans note that the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three U.S. military contractors in Benghazi was a huge scandal, along with additional ones involving the IRS targeting conservative organizations during the 2012 election cycle and Obama’s creation of the DACA program by executive order.

  1. Because the MSM, including CNN, covered up the stench. Kerry undermines US foreign policy, tries to continue the treasonous Obama racket during Trump’s administration. He should be in jail, at the VERY least, not lying on CIANews

  2. When you are constantly surrounded by the smell of raw sewage, you can’t ever get a whiff of anything else John-boy. Face it, your master’s administration was like an overflowing septic tank.

  3. There’s a fascinationg, detailed story on dcdirtylaundry site. It spells out that they found the original server at Benghazi. It had nuclear secrets. Hillary was selling nuclear secrets. She told everyone to stand down because she needed everybody there dead. This is a very detailed story about all the crime in the Obama admin. Obama is crooked as hell. Kerry, crooked as hell. Why Hillary hasn’t be swung by a rope MUST be due to all the corruption. Read that and then tell Kerry what you know about him, and that’s just for starters. Ask his cash coming back from Ukrain. We’re just winding up. Will they get prosecuted? So much corruption, even Trump can’t pull that one off. Barr appears compromised. Durham strong enough to stand up to Barr? We’ll see.

  4. John Clod Kerry was/IS a Traitor of America…Twice. Once during his stint in Viet Nam where he had a splinter and put Himself in for a Medal…then came home and LIED to the Congress-In his lying, JENG Jus Con routine. Now we find that Kerry was in on the Millions from Ukraine under the former corrupt President there…He made a deal there on behalf of his step son, Just as Biden who as V.P. got $900,000 from Ukraine, and then got HIS son Hunter on the ‘gravy train for millions”……as well, we Have Nancy Pelosi and her son Paul, in on the action….Just when in the Hell is ALL THIS CORRUPTION GOING TO BE ENOUGH FOR A.G. BARR & ATT. DURHAM TO FILE CHANGES AGAINST THESE CORRUPT, MONEY-HUNGRY CAREER POLITICOS, WHO CONTINUE TO TAKE FROM ANY NATION, ANYONE WHO WILL “PAY TO PLAY”(Hillary’s schemes, as SOS)

    Kerry had to be charged with the “Logan Act’ by Trump, as he was continuing to “act like he was STILL SOS, in meeting with foreign leaders…..NOT HIS JOB. Guess that Money, was just TOO GOOD TO PASS UP, right? Kerry was Always a Liar, and an opportunist, who cheat even on taxes for his yacht-taking it to another state.

    Is it ANY Wonder WHY American Citizens are Sick of this “D.C. Cesspool of Corruption, and voted for POTUS Trump to Drain that Cesspool and the Smelly Swamp of these Corrupt Players?”

    If ANY American Citizens tried to do what these people have done, WE would be in prison…….so UNLESS BARR and DURHAM believe that we DO have TWO SETS OF LAWS, AND THE “DEEP STATE/ELITISTS ARE IMMUNE FROM ANSWERING, THEN THEY TOO ARE HYPOCRITES, that I did NOT want to believe them to be. We need to bring Obama, the MOST CORRUPT POTUS EVER, in on charges(there are Many) along with Hillary, Rice, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Neuland, and ALL OF THEM NOW, NOT LATER, as the American Citizens Deserve Better Than THIS, and so does the POTUS Trump that WE ELECTED.
