WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
File charges against the 47 U.S. Senators in violation of The Logan Act in attempting to undermine a nuclear agreement.
On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.
At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.
This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason.

KBP 3/10/2015: I signed and shared this petition. I also will add this to my blog and I will publish the 47 senator’s names. I demand these senators receive consequences for their treasonous actions – no sweeping this under the carpet – and don’t forget the Benedict Arnold Speaker of the House. Remove them all – now!
I believe it’s sedition; it’s a violation of the Logan Act.
Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton scolded the 47 errant letter writing seditious republican senators: “I want to comment on a matter in the news today regarding Iran. The president and his team are in the midst of intense negotiations. Their goal is a diplomatic solution that would close off Iran’s pathways to a nuclear bomb and give us unprecedented access and insight into Iran’s nuclear program. Now, reasonable people can disagree about what exactly it will take to accomplish this objective, and we all must judge any final agreement on its merits. But the recent letter from Republican senators was out of step with the best traditions of American leadership. And one has to ask, what was the purpose of this letter? There appear to be two logical answers. Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians or harmful to the commander- in-chief in the midst of high-stakes international diplomacy. Either answer does discredit to the letters’ signatories.”
The official response from Iran’s foreign minister to the letter from 47 Republican senators: Iranian Foreign Minister, Dr. Javad Zarif said “In our view, this letter has no legal value and is mostly a propaganda ploy. It is very interesting that while negotiations are still in progress and while no agreement has been reached, some political pressure groups are so afraid even of the prospect of an agreement that they resort to unconventional methods, unprecedented in diplomatic history. This indicates that like Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content …”
I wanted to print the infamous letter along with the names of the 47 senators but it took such a winding path to get this type of information on my iPad. One post that I wanted to get into stalled and was clearly censored. I screen saved it here:
Then I landed on the gold mine! I screen grabbed the letter with Senator Tom Cotton’s signature as clear as day, along with his fellow conspirators’ signatures. Here it isn’t:
Here are several photos that show the grand conspirators in all their Te Party glory!
