Is this a violation of the Logan Act or nah?
It has been 4 years since General Flynn was targeted by the Obama administration and the Deep State for daring to be a part of President Trump’s administration for doing the very same thing that Ben Rhodes admits that the Biden campaign is currently doing — speaking to foreign governments during a transition period.
Actually, it’s even worse than what General Flynn did because he was about to become the National Security Advisor in a Trump administration and the election wasn’t contested as it now is with court cases looming and allegations of voter fraud.
Remember, it was Joe Biden that had suggested using the Logan Act to go after General Michael Flynn.

I’m assuming that y’all know the saga of the criminal investigation that General Flynn is still enduring to this day, but if you don’t, check out Glenn Greenwald’s summary here. Greenwald notes that a criminal investigation into Flynn was farical and included abuses of FISA warrants and the NSA for something that was entirely normal.
Ben Rodes, the former Obama foreign policy advisor was once an aspiring fiction writer which could explain why he cannot tell the difference between reality and fantasy. After all, he was all-in on “Russia collusion.”
This is the same asshat that bragged about massaging certain members of the Media (D) in all the right places to get them to push a narrative and dupe the American people on the asinine Iran Deal.
This noted liar should not be taken seriously and certainly shouldn’t be showing up on cable news networks discussing foreign policy.
Now, he could actually be a part of a potential Biden administration, which is just… wonderful. I mean… it’ll just be so great for the country to have Ben effing Rhodes in a position of prominence again. (In case it’s unclear, I’m being sarcastic.)
Mr. “Aspiring Fiction Writer” admitted on MSNBC to Nicolle Wallace that there is already discussion with foreign leaders and the Biden team “about the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th.”
RHODES: “But here’s the thing. This is going to happen anyway, Nicolle. The Trump people seem to be talking like they have some agency here. We’re going to have the pageantry already of the President-Elect announcing his advisory board. He’s going to start announcing cabinet secretaries. The center of political gravity in this country and the world is shifting to Joe Biden. Foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden, talking about the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th. If that reality hasn’t sunk in yet for some people in the White House, it will sink in when they have to leave on January 20th. And they’re going to be in for a rude awakening here. I remember, I was on the incoming side, where I felt the spotlight shifting to us in 2008 and I was on the outgoing side in 2016 when it was shifting away from us to Donald Trump. That’s just going to happen regardless of what they do. The question is, how much damage do they do? How much do they slow down that efficient transfer? How much do they sow seeds of doubt of whether this is a legitimate result to their supporters?”

That’s literally what they were targeting General Flynn for doing.
Well, I guess that opens them up to FISA warrants, NSA survelliance and criminal prosecution, right?
After all, we can’t have two different standards of justice in this country where one party is handled one way and the other party is handled a different way.
But you know that won’t happen, because despite what the Media (D) and the Democrats — but I repeat myself — tell you, the Republicans actually respect the rule of law and don’t use the system to target and harass their political enemies the way that Democrats oh-so-often do.
So, as fun as it would be to watch Joe Biden (should he be confirmed as the winner) squirm under 4 years of a Special Counsel investigation into “Big Tech collusion” while some of his underlings like Rhodesie here face possible jail time, bankruptcy, and the FBI threatening investigations into family members, well, that’s not very likely.
But if Ben Rhodes were any kind of fiction writer, I’m sure he could imagine it.
