Reuters News is reporting that Congressman Devin Nunes's investigation into President Obama may have inadvertently uncovered more evidence that candidate Trump was negotiating with Russia, a violation of the Logan Act.
Republican lawmaker Devin Nunes’ investigation into whether Obama administration officials used classified intelligence reports to discredit Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign team could backfire on the congressman - and the president, sources familiar with the reports said. The reports contain no evidence that any aides to former Democratic President Barack Obama acted improperly, the sources said, but they do indicate some Trump associates may have violated an obscure 1799 law, the Logan Act, which prohibits unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with a foreign government that has a dispute with the United States.
The Justice Dept. has cleared the Obama Administration of illegally spying on the Trump administration. Some worry that Mr. Nunes attempts to cover up for President Trump may lead to the unearthing of more evidence that is hurtful to the President.
