Obama has had a difficult time relinquishing the power that he once held as president of the United States, as he’s been obsessed ever since leaving the White House to take President Trump down, forming a “shadow government” where his spies continue to infiltrate the Trump Administration. On several occasions, Obama’s forgotten that he isn’t president anymore, as evidenced several weeks ago where he went behind President Trump’s back urging senators not to scrap Obamacare. Now Obama is trying again to make a power move on Trump and take over as president, after holding a secret diplomatic meeting with a foreign leader. But this time, Obama’s antics aren’t just annoying, they’re highly illegal. And unfortunately for Obama, his cocky behavior and disregard for our nation’s laws could land him time behind bars in federal prison.
The Daily Caller reports that Obama met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday, where “dealing with Trump” was discussed between the two men for over 40 minutes. Blinded by his massive over-inflated ego while pretending to be someone important, Obama apparently missed the fact that holding a diplomatic foreign meeting as a civilian is a direct violation of the Logan Act, and a serious federal crime. According to the Logan Act, any citizen of the United States who tries to shape America’s foreign policy without authorization by the government is breaking federal law, a serious offense that is borderline treason! Here’s the exact wording of the 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.
But trying subvert of the President of the United States and illegally influencing American foreign policy was just part of Obama’s agenda that day, as he then used his time with the South Korean president to undermine President Trump, blasting his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.
“In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said in Indonesia. The Daily Caller reported:
Former President Barack Obama seems to be feeling nostalgic for his old job, meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday for 40 minutes.
The Korea Herald reported that Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship.
The meeting came after Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference and the Fourth Congress of Indonesian Diaspora in Jakarta. There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.
“In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said in Indonesia.
The former president had said before leaving office that he appreciated his predecessor George W. Bush’s silence during his tenure, but also contended that he’s “still a citizen and that carries with it duties and obligations.”
This citizen status has led to him to have an active post-presidential political life.
He appealed to members of Congress in May to have the “courage” to save Obamacare, and just a few weeks into President Trump’s tenure Obama put out a statement through his spokesman attacking Trump’s so-called “travel ban.”
President Trump and Obama have had a strained relationship. Trump has accused Obama of both spying on him and obstruction of justice.
It’s high freaking time that Obama is taken down a few notches and reminded that he is no longer President of the United States. While this idiot might have gotten away with trampling all over our Constitution by hiding behind his position as Commander-in-Chief surrounded by all his cronies, now that he’s a civilian, there’s no reason in the world that the Trump Administration should let this type of subversion and borderline treason continue. Hopefully someone in Washington will finally hold Obama’s feet to the fire, and throw his ass in prison for breaking federal law!
