Democrats have spent years prosecuting the honorable Michael Flynn for what they called a violation of the Logan Act, because he talked with foreign leaders in December, AFTER TRUMP WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT AND VERIFIED BY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! Now, Joe Biden is meeting with foreign leaders, and discussing his agenda to undo what President Trump has been doing, EVEN BEFORE HE HAS THE VOTES CONFIRMED, OR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE MEETS IN DECEMBER!
Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security adviser during the Obama administration, claimed on Monday that “foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden.”
Gen. Mike Flynn, the first national security adviser for President Donald Trump, was investigated under an arcane law called the Logan Act for having precisely such communications with foreign leaders before Trump was sworn in.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has been accused of suggesting the Logan Act as a pretext for investigating Flynn, although other Obama administration officials claim the idea did not come from Biden.
Rhodes said Biden is already talking to foreign leaders during an MSNBC appearance on Monday afternoon:
Rhodes made his comments while scoffing at President Donald Trump for contesting the results of last week’s election.
“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,” said Rhodes.
“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,” Rhodes added.
