It’s that dusty law, possibly unconstitutional and seldom enforced, that bars private citizens from conducting foreign policy on behalf of the US, in contradiction of legitimate government authorities. In recent years, Democrats have often tried to use it against Republicans, making bogus charges that just talking to a foreign diplomat, even if it’s part of your job, is somehow a “violation of the Logan Act.” Ask Mike Flynn about that.
Well, stop the presses! After all these years, I think we might finally have a certifiable, prosecutable violation of the Logan Act!
In an exclusive report, the Washington Times reveals that an attempt by the Trump Administration to open back-channel talks with Iran to defuse rising tensions failed because two months before, Iran’s foreign minister had been talking with former Obama officials, including John Kerry and Robert Malley, who were working to undermine Trump (i.e., the official elected representative of the United States) and lay the groundwork for the Democrats’ return to power and a more “accommodating” stance toward the world’s #1 state sponsor of terrorism. That's right: their meddling directly interfered with official attempts to quell the dangers from Iran.
I anxiously await the coming Logan Act indictments and FBI raids of John Kerry’s house in the dead of night with helicopters and SWAT teams and psychic CNN reporters standing by. And don’t give Kerry bail: he loves taking private jets to accept environmental awards, so we know he’s a flight risk.
