"the people of the United States have given to the executive department the power to negotiate with foreign governments, and to carry on all foreign relations, and that it is therefore an usurpation of that power for an individual to undertake to correspond with any foreign power on any dispute between the two governments, or for any state government, or any other department of the general government, to do it." Rep. Isaac Parker of Massachusetts (Jan. 16, 1799.) "Into the field of negotiation the Senate cannot intrude, and Congress itself is powerless to invade it." (United States Supreme Court (Curtiss-Wright, 1936.) 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 Logan Act (1799.) Dear Mr. President, Secrectary of State Rice, and Attorney General Gonzalez: Please take whatever steps are necessary to prosecute Nancy Polosi and her entourage for violating the Logan Act, emboldening our enemies, and breaking their oaths of office on their recent trip to Syria.

daniel brown, United States7 years ago Comments: Speaker Pelosi should have been gone by now. Her ineptitude acts in the congress is bringing this country to her knees. Impeach/prosecute, do what ever it takes to get her out. She is not a leader.
Jennifer Bilbrey, United States7 years ago Comments: Pelosi clearly violated the Logan act without any doubt. Her prosecution is demanded by the American citizens that own this country. Dont forget who is in charge. It is not any one of you but all of us. Support of our troops requires faith in their management of this war. How dare she be so bold as to undermine The President of the UNITED STATES. Turn up the heat on the left. We only have 1 year and I am terrified. Examples must be made and the true will of the people must be expressed. If my son or daughter was going to be killed in a terrorist operation and we had a prisoner held that could provide information but he wouldnt without some.. ENCOURAGEMENT.. than you better believe if that MFer wasnt tortured into talking by whatever means necessary to save those lives I would have them prosecuted for aiding and abetting. Unbelievable bleeding heart idiots Lets Clean the HOUSE!
