Investigate Senator Tom Cotton under the Logan Act

By organizing his fellow Senators to sign an open letter to Iran, in an effort to undermine President Obama and the State Department's authority under the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Senator Cotton may have broken any number of laws, and the Department of Justice needs to investigate.

Why is this important?

Established back in 1799, the Logan Act makes it illegal for unauthorized American citizens to negotiate with foreign governments.

Violation of the act is a felony, and comes with a punishment of up to three years in prison.

Reasons for signing

  • Cotton and the others who signed that letters have committed high treason, and should be imprisoned the and stripped of all benefits from their tenure in office.
  • 47 Republicans signed the letter. Check out the Wikipedia article on the Logan Act.
  • I believe Sen. Cotton committed treason and should be prosecuted as such. Additionally he communicated directly with a sanctioned state that had been deemed a supporter of terrorism and should be prosecuted for that as well.
