Kerry's meetings do not appear to violate FARA, but some have suggested they could be in violation of the Logan Act, which prohibits private citizens from negotiating on behalf of the USA government without authorization, though no one has ever been successfully prosecuted under the law.

Trump withdrew the United States from a nuclear deal with Iran that Kerry clinched in 2015 between Iran and six world powers.

Later in the day, Kerry was asked by Fox News' Dana Perino if he told the Iranians to simply hold out until 2020, when Trump could be voted out of office. In return, Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear program making it impossible to produce a bomb, along with rigorous inspections. Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act?

The Foreign Agents Registration Act requires agents representing the interests of foreign powers to disclose their relationships with worldwide governments and their related activities and finances.

Kerry has admitted to meeting "three or four times" with Zarif since he left office.

"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, ' Pompeo added".

Trump also targeted Kerry in May following a Boston Globe report about his meetings with officials involved in the Iran nuclear deal, which he helped craft while secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

He added that "no doubt" there were some checks at the airport but "the baggage checks weren't probably as good as they might be". Britain has blamed the Russian government of being involved in the attacks, though Moscow has strongly denied it.

Reports that Kerry met with Zarif first surfaced in May. FARA's provisions don't extend to activities conducted entirely overseas, so where Kerry interacted with him matters.

"John Kerry is out giving advice to Iran about how to maneuver around what Donald Trump is doing, it's insidious", said former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. "BAD!" Trump tweeted Thursday night. "John Kerry can't get over the fact that he had his chance and blew it! Stay away from negotiations John, you are hurting your country!"

Kerry, the former MA senator who worked as the nation's top diplomat in the Obama administration, made the comments about his interactions with Iran as he promotes his new book, "Every Day Is Extra".

Trump took it one step further. A third is reported to have occurred at the United Nations headquarters, which is not technically on US soil. "What I have done is tried to elicit from him what Iran might be willing to do in order to change the dynamic in the Middle East for the better".

During interviews this week Kerry has accused the Trump administration of pursuing a policy of regime change in Iran.

"That's not my job, and my coaching him would not, you know, that's not how it works", he said in the interview.
