Impeach and Prosecute John Boehner and The 47 TRAITORS!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

By his inviting a foreign leader to address Congress, John Boehner deliberately dealt in foreign policy and thus violated the "Logan Act", thus usurping the powers of the presidency of the United States.

In so doing, Boehner also deliberately violated the "separation of powers" clause in the US Constitution.

By law, he must now be tried by Congress, and forced to resign.

Under the "Logan Act" of 1799, (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) Executive power to engage in Foreign Policy is ONLY vested in the President of the United States of America.

The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 30 January 1799, currently codified at 18 U.S.C. § 953) specifically forbids any unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.

The Act is intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments.
It was passed in 1799 and last amended in 1994.

Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

Petition Background

1) This is not about any political party.

It is about the preservation of the Separation of Powers clause that is the bedrock of the US Federal Government and our Constitutional Republic, as well as the blatant violation (by 47 + 1 members of the Senate and House) of the 'Logan Act', which specifically prohibits ANY U.S. Citizen not of the Executive Branch (Article II of the U.S. Constitution) from directly engaging in U.S. Foreign Diplomacy, such action being legally defined as an act of Treason.

2) Besides being delivered to both The Senate and House Ethics Committees, this petition shall be delivered to The President of the United States and The Attorney General of the United States (Department of Justice).

3) We as Citizens of the United States do further request that ALL electronic mail accounts of these following suspect individuals be locked and searched by DOJ / FBI, as potential prima facie evidence of manifest treason, covert collusion and thus conspiracy with certain known and unknown extremist elements of the foreign governments of Israel and Iran, to circumvent the current negotiation process and thus perpetuate a permanent state of low intensity conflict, protracted limited war, and virtual war, in the Middle East; even as the The United States and members of the European Union work assiduously towards an official nuclear arms elimination treaty with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
