Although the Obama administration weaponized the Logan Act to get Gen. Michael Flynn fired, it never intended to actually use the antiquated law to prosecute him. In fact, it has been the prosecution instigated by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that uncovered the full extent of the Obama administration’s misdeeds.

The Logan Act is a law from 1799 dictating that it is illegal for private citizens to negotiate with a foreign power in a way that contradicts the current administration’s policy. The Logan Act has been used only twice since then for prosecution, the last time in 1852, and is widely considered by legal experts to be unconstitutional.

Obama Provided Leadership

Peter Strzok’s newly released handwritten notes shed more light on the meeting President Barack Obama held in the Oval Office 15 days before Trump’s inauguration. This meeting has become infamous because of Susan Rice’s bizarre decision to email herself an account of it on her last day as Obama’s national security adviser.

Present at the meeting were Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and Rice. Sometime after the meeting, Comey told FBI agent Strzok about it, and now we have Strzok’s notes from that conversation.

Rice’s email says, “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’” These words, stated three times according to Rice, are conspicuously missing from Strzok’s notes of the meeting. Further, Comey’s subsequent decision not to proceed “by the book,” or within the bounds of law and procedure, demonstrate that either Comey didn’t take Obama’s instructions seriously or Obama never gave those instructions in the first place.:snip:
