logan_act

Some on Capitol Hill are pursuing an investigation of former national security adviser Lt. General Michael Flynn to determine if he violated the Logan Act in speaking to a Russian diplomat.  Others demand a criminal investigation of those that leaked portions of the classified conversation as a violation of the Espionage Act.

Still others want to probe why they weren’t invited to Flynn’s post-appointment party.  Said one congressman involved in the investigation, “We gotta fight for our right to party.”
