Dem Senator: It’s Inappropriate for John Kerry to Conduct ‘Side Diplomacy’

"I don't think it's super appropriate for former administration officials to be trying to do side diplomacy," Chris Murphy said.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said that it would not be appropriate for former Secretary of State John Kerry to create side deals with Iran in an attempt to preserve the Iran nuclear deal during an interview on Tuesday.

CNN reported that Kerry “had been engaging in ‘shadow diplomacy’ to try to preserve the Iran nuclear deal by holding meetings and speaking with major players.”

MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson asked Murphy what he thought about these reports.

“I don’t know too much about that. I don’t think it’s super appropriate for former administration officials to be trying to do side diplomacy,” Murphy said. “If that is indeed the case, I would be troubled by it.”
