It looks as if my observation that John Kerry might have finally provided us with the first prosecutable violation of the Logan Act in over 200 years has caught some people’s fancy and sparked debate. Good! It’s been instructive to see how many Democrats who wanted to jail Trump officials for violating the Logan Act just for talking at cocktail parties to people from a country we aren’t at war with (Russia) see nothing wrong with Kerry secretly conducting diplomacy with Iran, a hostile foreign nation that supports terrorism (that thing we’re at war with), without official standing in a deliberate attempt to undermine the policies of the elected US government (i.e., “the Logan Act.”)
My comments were just an observation; I don’t really expect Kerry to be charged, because as we learned with Hillary Clinton, federal laws protecting national security don’t apply to failed Democratic presidential candidates. But I’d love to see the Justice Department take (for once) a serious look at whether he should be charged with violating federal laws. Oh look, maybe they actually will!
Terrific editorial cartoon that not only jabs John Kerry for his “shadow diplomacy” to undermine the elected US government, it also reminds us of what real collusion with hostile foreign governments looks like – and not just Kerry and Iran, but a president who was actually caught on camera colluding with Putin back when Democrats were A-okay with that.
