We have heard it from the media. President Trump violated the ancient Logan Act (18 U.S. Code § 953 – Private correspondence with foreign governments) with his Russia communications after he was elected and before he took office. This act has been lying dormant since it was enacted in 1799 – yes 1799. Since they cannot prove collusion to win an election – cannot prove it because it did not happen, they are now looking at his actions as President-Elect.
If Congress impeaches him for violating the Logan Act prior to taking office, then he and Barack Obama are have violated the same law. Yes, Obama has been and is touring foreign capitals following President Trump’s trips and talking with the same leaders with whom President Trump had state-level discussions. Former President Obama in abject violation of the Logan Act is currently conducting his own foreign policy to negate the policy of our current administration and our nation. How do we need to know, let’s look at the Logan Act:
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.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 744; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(K), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

OBAMA TO MEET WITH WORLD LEADERS
“Former President Barack Obama will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming trip abroad.
Obama will visit China and India before making a stop in Paris, according to a spokesperson for the former president. Obama will speak at various summits in the three countries he visits.
The Times of India last week reported that Obama would be in India’s capital city of New Delhi on Dec. 1 for an Obama Foundation event, which the spokesperson confirmed in a statement.President Trump recently concluded his own five-nation tour of Asia, in which he met with both Xi and Modi during the 12-day trip.
Obama’s trip to India will come shortly after first daughter Ivanka Trump’s visit to the country.
Trump, a White House senior adviser, met with Modi during the eighth Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad.
“It was an honor to meet with you Prime Minister Modi. Thank you for co-hosting the 8th annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit! @StateDept,” Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
During her speech to the summit, Trump spoke of female entrepreneurs, adding to her continued focus on women’s issues in her role at the White House.”
USA News – June 11, 2017OBAMA STILL MEETING WITH FOREIGN LEADERS“Former President Barack Obama hasn’t been in the Oval Office for several months now, but it appears he’s having a very tough time accepting that as reality.Though Obama once stated he planned to remain out of the spotlight, he has done just the opposite.Over the past few months, the former president has made a series of high profile moves, apparently in an attempt to remind everyone he’s still relevant (or at least he thinks he is).In Obama’s latest post-presidential move, he met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The two had dinner and reportedly talked about ways to get youth involved in politics, HeatStreet reported.Apparently no one told Trudeau that Obama is no longer the president, and therefore really has no business making international meetings to try to influence politics on a global scale.It also seems as if Obama is traveling around the world trying to undermine everything President Trump is doing. While Trump was in Europe for the G-7 and NATO meetings, Obama was also in Europe, meeting with world leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel.You would think that after eight years of being president, Obama would have had enough of politics and be content to sit back and actually rest for a little while. Instead, he insists on staying in the spotlight, apparently fancying himself as invaluable to world politics.Besides running around the world stage, Obama hasn’t been shy about openly criticizing our current president.Politico noted that Obama lashed out at Trump over his decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement on climate change — which, in Obama’s mind, was one of his signature achievements.“(E)ven in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got,” Obama said in a statement after the decision was announced.CNN reported that Obama also gave a speech Tuesday in Montreal where he took several thinly veiled shots at Trump.Obama called on the world to reject authoritarianism, and praised the “institutions that we built to keep the peace,” such as NAFTA and the UN.Apparently Obama didn’t get the message on election day 2016, so let me lay it out for him again:The American people had eight years of you and voted for Trump! Your time is over.he fact that Obama has to go overseas to get a warm reception indicates just how much America doesn’t care what he thinks anymore.”

There is much more documentation on the violation of the Logan Act by Obama. So Congress, and Mueller: I guess Donald Trump has company. So if you go after one – YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GO AFTER BOTH!
