Biden’s State Department was hoping it would be able to successfully avoid releasing climate czar John Kerry’s finances considering he’s one of the richest members of the Biden administration but after weeks of requests Fox News finally wore them down. Beginning on April 9th, Fox News began requesting the documents which typically takes around two to three business days to fulfill however the State Department did not comply with the request without giving any reason.
Fox News reports:
Fox News sent the State Department five total requests for the documents before they were released, despite communications with an agency spokesperson who directed Fox News to contact the same email address to which the requests had already been sent.
The State Department only released the documents after Fox News informed the agency that it was preparing a story on the administration’s refusal to comply with the records request. A State Department spokesperson then said they were “seeking an answer” about the document request.
Fox News received the documents the same day, April 29.
It makes sense the State Department dragged its feet on releasing Kerry’s documents considering they paint the former Secretary of State and current climate czar as a total hypocrite. According to the documents, Kerry and his wife owned millions in fossil fuel-related stocks. he owned this while jetting all over the world- in his gas-guzzling private jet to warn people of the detrimental effects of climate change.

According to a 2016 document, Kerry’s wife, heiress Teresa Heinz, owned between $1.13 million and $2.87 million in oil and gas assets. Kerry’s most recent periodic transaction report shows they sold as much as $15 million in stock holdings, including up to $15,000 in shares of Cabot Oil & Gas, up to $50,000 in ConocoPhillips and up to $50,000 in Valero, on March 11.
John Kerry recently came under fire for discussing covert Israel operations to Iran’s foreign minister.
