Biden really is violating the Logan Act

Ben Rhodes, who was Obama’s National Security Advisor (that failed novel-writing career paid off), announced that Joe Biden is already having phone calls with foreign leaders. Some are comparing Biden’s conduct to the conduct for which the Deep State persecuted General Michael Flynn. This is not accurate. What Biden is doing is infinitely worse.

Let me begin by conceding immediately that the Logan Act is probably a constitutional irrelevancy. Nevertheless, since Biden brought it up at the infamous January 5 White House meeting to entrap General Michael Flynn, it’s worth discussing here.

The 1799 Logan Act makes it a crime for unauthorized American citizens to negotiate with foreign governments engaged in a dispute with the United States. An excellent example of conduct that violates the Logan Act is John Kerry’s boast that, while the United States was at war with the Viet Cong, Kerry was in Paris negotiating with them. American history in subsequent decades might have been better had Nixon’s government prosecuted him.
