How about when candidate Øbama went on his foreign policy tour in 2008?

Or in the 1980's the 'Dear Comandante' letter? Did you, or the MSM, or the Democrats not signing that letter cry 'Logan Act' then?

CONGRESS - LETTER TO NICARAGUA - 'DEAR COMANDANTE' - NYTimes.com

Many examples of Democrats, did we hear a cry from you, from the MSM, from the Democrat Party, about the 'Logan Act'? And a few years after that 'Act' became law the Pennsylvania Legislature elected Logan a U.S. Senator. And later in life, c.1810, Logan went on another private peace mission, yet no one tried to enforce the 'Act'.

And you neatly sidestep the facts that it was the Øbama administration which listened in on Flynn's conversations.


We actually have intelligence agencies that routinely monitor communications between citizens and foreign governments.
It's legal, it's funded by congress, what do you think the issue is?

Legal? Was it? And then disclose them as leaks? Legal?

FBI needs to explain why Flynn was recorded, Intelligence Committee chairman says

Flynn is the only man in America, and Democrats were outraging the GOP about his resignation.

30 years and 100 million taxpayer dollars couldn't prove Clinton broke any laws. Either Clinton is the smartest criminal in the world or you people are the most stupid investigators in the world.

They come from the Trump inner circle, jockeying for power, that's why no investigation, they already know the answer and they don't want it made public.

And Yeah, Who in the Obama administration OK'd monitoring communications with foreign governments by private citizens...OH, wait, we've done that since the 1700's.

The real question is, who appointed a guy who didn't know that communications with foreign governments were routinely monitored to be National Security Advisor?

And from the intelligence communities that Trump shit all over repeatedly. He's too stupid to realize that making enemies of the intelligence apparatus and making friends with the "KGB", isn't going to work out well when they have all the information to take you down lol and our intel knows it and worries that these idiots are now Russian targets for blackmail.

This blurred line is still making headlines. This whole episode raised the boiling point of issues.

U.S. President Donald Trump knew for weeks that national security adviser Michael Flynn had misled the White House about his contacts with Russia but did not immediately force him out, an administration spokesman said on Tuesday.

Trump was informed in late January that Flynn had not told Vice President Mike Pence the whole truth about conversations he had with Russia's ambassador to the United States before Trump took office, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.

But the highest-ranking Republican in Congress, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, sidestepped questions about whether lawmakers should look into Flynn's Russia ties, adding that he would leave it to the Trump administration to explain the circumstances behind Flynn's departure.

It is a very serious problem. Its like Snowdon but much worse. This is potentially and probably a person or persons currently in the CIA. Its a political attack probably based on animosity towards Flynn. looks like it is an organized attack.
