Senators Violate Logan Act

The Logan Act is a law that’s been on the books since 1799. Here is what it states:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Yesterday, a group of 47 Republican Senators blatantly violated this important law by sending an open letter to Iran’s leaders warning them that they’ll reverse any nuclear deal Iran signs with President Obama’s administration after he leaves office.

Remember, these Senators did this while President Obama is in the middle of high level negotiations with Iran to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons. It’s completely reckless. It’s a precedent that can’t be allowed to stand.

It’s time these Republicans face consequences for their incredibly reckless actions.
