    The logan act of 1799 states

    § 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.
    1 Stat. 613, January 30, 1799, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953 (2004).


    Keith Olbermann of all people without knowing he did explains and shows how obama did it.

    When was the last conviction of violating the Logan Act?

    Who would ever prosecute him when there have been so many other examples of violations of the Logan act that have gone unpunished since the Vietnam War.

    Personally, I think we SHOULD start prosecuting and with conviction punishing to the fullest extent of the law the Logan act, and maybe half the 5th column stuff will quit happening to us.

    I wonder though. Is 3 years and a fine enough of a punishment?

    This is another stupid argument. Do you realize how many treaties we would have if this stupid act were actually enforced against our government officials? NONE. This is a non starter
