The Logan Act is not a joke.  47 Republican members of the US Senate are now officially felons, awaiting arrest, convicted by their own admission.  Yet they believe nothing will happen, that they are above the law and they may well be right.  Sources close to the Justice Department indicate that the Attorney General is reviewing private emails between Justice Anthony Scalia and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

It is said that Scalia assures McConnell that he has “five justices in his pocket” and can assure this move against the presidency.

The letter to Iran penned by GOP legislators is a clear violation of 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.

The issues are several, not simply members of government acting in the capacity of private citizens usurping governmental authority in contravention to US law.  This is very much rebellion, a direct challenge, not of the authority of the President but rather the Constitution itself.

All elected officials in the US swear an oath of office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Would it be possible to violate an oath this thoroughly?
