Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX, issued a scathing statement Tuesday, joining some of his Republican colleagues in calling for former Secretary of State John Kerry to resign.

“John Kerry should resign – not because of the reported troubling statements, per se, but because he is a fool and endangers our nation and Israel,” Roy said.

Roy was referring to reports that Kerry, who now serves as the Biden administration’s Climate Czar, allegedly divulged secret information about Israel’s operations in Syria to Iranian officials.

The New York Times obtained leaked audio from Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who made the claims that Kerry knew about 200+ Israeli operations in Syria.

Roy slammed not just Kerry, but the Biden administration for “stabbing Israel in the back,” saying he called China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin before calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Moreover, Roy suggested that Kerry “is more interested in preening on the international stage and pretending to be Secretary of State while promoting unicorn energy policies that empower Iran, China, and our enemies rather than America and Israel.”

Roy concluded, “There should be no question whose side America is on. Indeed, the only question we should be asking is if Joe Biden stands with John Kerry, Iran, and our enemies or with Israel. Which is it, Mr. President?”

Analysts say President Joe Biden is unlikely to “prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran’s oil exports” due to “worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China” according to Reuters.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, House Republican Representative Steve Scalise, said the administration had made it easier for Iran to sell its oil, generating revenues that were being used to “go fund terrorist activity.”

The Biden administration has maintained for months that among its primary goals is to keep the Gaza conflict between terror group Hamas and Israel from turning into a wider regional war. However, House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Kimberly Donovan, a sanctions and anti-money laundering expert at the Atlantic Council, said that oil-related sanctions have not been strictly enforced in the past couple of years.

“I would not expect the administration to tighten enforcement in response to Iran’s missile and drone attacks against Israel over the weekend, mainly for concerns (that) could lead to increases in oil prices,” she said.

“The price of oil and ultimately the prices of gas at the pump become critical during an election year.”
