Should the US Government Prosecute Pelosi for Violation of the Logan Act?


Should the US Government Prosecute Pelosi for Violation of the Logan Act?
_______________________

So… what is the Logan Act? If is a federal law, which basically says no one, other than the President of the United States, or someone appointed by him, can negotiate the foreign policy of the US with a foreign power.

So what, exactly, does the Logan act say? Let’s take a look:


TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 45 > § 953

§ 953. Private correspondence with foreign governments

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.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

**************************
The Logan Act was requested by President John Adams after a Pennsylvania pacifist named George Logan traveled to France in 1798 to assure the French government the American people favored peace in the undeclared "Quasi War" being fought on the high seas between the two countries. The object of the Logan act is "to punish a crime" arising "from an interference of individual citizens in the negotiations of our executive with foreign governments."

Well, there it is. I remember saying that there was a possibility Pelosi had broken the law. I remembered from many years ago the discussion of the Logan Act when some other citizen(s) of the US made the same mistake as Pelosi.

Now, should Pelosi be prosecuted? Well, I think we need a special prosecutor to look into it and determine if she broke the law. If it is determined that she did… then she should be tried and, if found guilty, she should go to jail . I believe the sentence is for three years. Of course, she would lose her Speaker’s job.

Now that I think about it... Congress got rid of the "Special Prosecutor " didn't it? Ok, so we need the US Attorney General's office to step in an begin an investigation. You and I both know that's not going to happen. And now you know why it is so important for the Democrats to have the US Attorney General's office off kilter and on the defensive all the time.

Now, think about this: the first woman speaker of the US House of Representatives may have already broken the law. … not a minor law but a MAJOR Federal Law!
So, why are you not hearing about this on the Mainstream Media outlets?

You have to ask???

Surely you understand, by now, the MSM is a lapdog of the democrat party and the American Left as a whole. If you hear about it on the MSM it will only be so the MSM can humiliate the person raising the question. That’s the way it works!

Yes, there are two distinct standards in America. One for the American Left and a totally different, stricter, standard for the American Right. To verify this all you have to do is read a newspaper, or watch a mainstream media news program, or talk program, and there you will see it. The MSM no longer even tries to cover up their bias.

So then, back to the problem: We have a Speaker of the US House of Representatives gallivanting all over the Middle East discussing US Foreign Policy with a number of America’s enemies . The President did not authorize her to make that trip and he certainly did not authorize her to talk to those dictators, while she was over there, and he certainly did not ask her to speak on behalf of the US to those dictators. Next, the President asked her NOT TO GO. Now, let’s understand… when a President asks you to do something… or NOT do something, as the case maybe, …consider it an order! Pelosi went against the orders of the President of the United States.

There are a number of reasons to believe she has violated Federal law… to be specific: the Logan Act.

So… what will be done about it?

Honestly?

Not a Damn Thing!

Why?

Because she is one of the elite! She is one of the CHOSEN! She is a DEMOCRAT and, as we all know, Democrats are above the law.

Woe be it unto a Republican who should be that stupid and break the same law! He’d be so far back, under the jail, that sunlight would have to be piped in! It’s those TWO STANDARDS… remember?
