Citizens: Arrest Pelosi for felony!
Regarding the typical Republican wussiness in pursuing Nancy Pelosi (D-Feat) for possibly committing a felony under the Logan Act whereby Pelosi has clearly set out to negotiate with a foreign power..
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.Tom Lantos, D-Feat, has admitted they were in Syria offering an alternative U.S. policy to Assad, ie. breaching the Logan Act...
Meanwhile Lantos is opening boasting of visiting Iran, and challenging the President policy regarding nuclear fuel..
Lantos noted that with the speaker's support, he has co-sponsored legislation in the House that calls for making available to all countries -- including Iran -- nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes under international oversight by establishing a 'nuclear fuel bank.'So what is the remedy? There is always a CITIZEN'S ARREST... and fortunately both California and D.C. offer a legal remedy.
So if the Iranian president says that he is developing (nuclear material) for peaceful purposes, we are assisting him in that process, said Lantos, who anticipated the legislation could pass as early as May.
The California Penal Code gives any citizen the right to make a citizen's arrest of another citizen in three alternative situations:
1. A public offense was committed or attempted in the citizen's presence.Now on the surface, the DC code seems to have an insurmountable barrier, in that...
2. The person arrested has committed a felony, although not in the citizen's presence.
3. A felony has been in fact committed and the citizen has reasonable cause for believing the person arrested has committed it.
District of Columbia Law 23- 582(b) reads as follows:However, if one stretches the spirit of the Logan Act, the act of negotiating is by itself, a long term affair that must occur over a time-frame...
(b) A private person may arrest another -
(1) who he has probable cause to believe is committing in his presence -
(A) a felony, or
(B) an offense enumerated in section 23-581 (a)(2);
Therefore it may be reasonable to infer that Pelosi may be thinking about her felonious behavior at the time you see her on the D.C. street.
So please ARREST THIS WOMAN.
I'd pay good money to see the Pelosi Mugshot. Actually on second thoughts, no I wouldn't unless her face is covered by a full burka.
