John Kerry faces heat from House Oversight Committee chair
- April 25, 2023
The House Oversight Committee is attempting to siphon details of the inner workings of John Kerry’s super-secret Climate office in a move being hailed by one watchdog.
Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust, said he’s had to take Kerry to court over his lack of transparency.
Now House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) is threatening his subpoena power to see exactly what Kerry, the special envoy for climate, is up to.
“The work of the American public is supposed to be performed in the open and that obligation should apply above all to an office with the power of John Kerry’s Office of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,” Chamberlain told the Herald Tuesday.
Chamberlain accused Kerry’s office of “evading federal records laws, and the outsourcing of traditional diplomacy to outside activists.”
He applauded Comer’s push for transparency, saying he’s “thankful that the Chairman of the Oversight Committee also continues to demand greater transparency from the SPEC office.”
