    Precisely. This is the foreign policy equivalent of the debate over the filibuster - for so many, where they stand depends entirely on whose ox is being gored.

    It's only treason when the Republicans say it's treason, remember. Just like they can say when the president is Kenyan/Muslim/Nazi/Socialist/Whatever.

    Point taken, but........this doesn't approach treason.

    You're being totally ridiculous, that act has zero to do with the letter.

    Dumb and dangerous.....very dangerous ....shall we talk about a new precedent here? WOW!

    Just when you think the GOP has gone off the rails entirely, they find a new set of rails to go off...historically unprecedented recklessness !

    If Lincoln , Teddy Roosevelt or even Ike could see today's Republican Party they would never stop vomiting.

    I'll tell you what is dangerous, a president that is so unwilling to work with Congress and has pretty much told the Congress to Go To Hell as he goes alone. He has shown time and time again he is willing to legislate from the Executive branch. Lift sanctions that were put into place by Congress, in regard to Cuba and Iran. Who behind the backs of Congress makes deals with terrorists. Now that is truly dangerous. What the Senators sent amounted to a civics lesson to Iran telling them how our government works and any deal this president makes with Iran will not necessarily hold once he is gone.

    2. There's legitimate questions regarding the "authority of the United States" when it comes to an elected official as opposed to a normal citizen

    3. Precedence suggests that such actions are either, at best, not a violation of the Logan Act or, at worst, not compelling enough to justify charges being brought when it relates to an elected federal official engaging in the correspondence.
    That case in controversy has already been decided by the Supreme Court.

    Per SCOTUS:
    "Not only . . . is the federal power over external affairs in origin and essential character different from that over internal affairs, but participation in the exercise of the power is significantly limited. In this vast external realm, with its important, complicated, delicate and manifold problems, the President alone has the power to speak or listen as a representative of the nation. He makes treaties with the advice and consent of the Senate; but he alone negotiates. Into the field of negotiation the Senate cannot intrude; and Congress itself is powerless to invade it." United States v Curtiss-Wright Exp Corp, 299 US 304, 319; 57 S Ct 216, 220; 81 L Ed 255 (1936))
    "I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it." --J.S. Mill

    Greetings, Glen Contrarian.

    Although I am fairly certain that Iran knows exactly how our government functions, what is treasonous about sending them an explanation about what possibilities to expect in the future as far as our laws go? We didn't tell them anything untrue, nor did we tell them what to do - that choice is still theirs to make, so how is that acting against this administration?
