If Barack Obama’s latest move doesn’t prove he’s trying to usurp authority from President Trump, I don’t know what does.
Fortunately, what Obama just did is against the law, and should send him to jail. Unfortunately, it’s doubtful Congress will have the balls to take such action against our first black president.
On Monday, Obama held a diplomatic meeting with a foreign leader, the president of South Korea.
Obama seems to be forgetting that he’s no longer president, and doesn’t get to help shape America’s foreign policy.
In fact, trying to do so is a federal crime.
Here’s the wording of the relevant law, known as the Logan Act:
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.
The thing is, no one has ever actually been prosecuted for violating this law.
On the other hand, we haven’t yet ever had a president quite as arrogant and obnoxious as Obama.
Do you want to see Obama prosecuted for breaking the law?
