Mike Flynn just resigned as Trump's national security adviser. Seems he had had some discussions with, among other of his world counterparts, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. prior to the Trump administration's official start. The Democrats apparently didn't like that claiming that he discussed Russian sanctions. They declared Flynn in violation of an obscure law called the Logan Act. This law was chronicled way back in the 1799 because one Dr. George Logan, a private citizen, negotiated with France, which was having a dispute with the U.S. It was enacted because the opposing party at the time was jealous of Logan's success in calming those unsettled relations. Because of his negotiations, France resumed trade with the U.S. and released captured sailors. Logan was brought to task but never prosecuted. In fact, no one has been charged or prosecuted under that law since. Logan was elected U.S. senator from Pennsylvania. That was the last anyone had even heard of the Logan Act. Leave it to the vindictive left to sniff it out for their entertainment.
