Now, we’re being sarcastic, of course. But only because Logan Act Twitter is the best and that the blue-check mob was so quick to scream it at Donald Trump during the campaign:
I'm old enough to remember when they told me the Logan Act was the most important law since Moses came down from the mountain and Mike Flynn had to be tarred and feathered for violating it https://t.co/osfXfschIv
