This is not going to be good news for those wacky unquestioning Republicans true believers who have been tweeting support for the 47 unpatriotic senators fixin' for war:
Didn't the rank and file know it was all a joke? From the loyalists tweet above, guess not.
Rachel Maddow noticed, pointing to public blowback that caught these idiots by surprise, and the newspaper editorial boards brutal bashing of the 47 Senators who jumped into the clown car with Tom Cotton. Yup, it was just a joke...yea, that's the ticket.
So many Americans were outraged over this freakish attempt to belittle Obama and march off to war, that they managed to force the administration to say whether they will charge the senators for their violation of the Logan Act:
ABC News: A petition on whitehouse.gov calling for charges to be filed against the 47 senators who sent an open letter to the leaders of Iran, possibly in violation of the Logan Act, has collected more than 165,000 signatures in less than two days. Because the petition exceeded 100,000 signatures within 30 days, the White House is required to respond.
The creator of this petition, known only by the initials C.H., alleges that the 47 senators “committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.” The letter, which was published on Monday, warned Iranian leaders that any nuclear deal they sign with President Obama won’t last past his second term.
