Pelosi and the Logan Act: "There is no Division Between the President and the Congress" on Syria

With widespread talk of the Logan Act and 3 years in jail, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is suddenly backing down from her Syrian "peace" initiative... faster than you can say words "independent council": "Our message was President Bush's message," she now says with the smirk wiped off of her face, "there is no division between the president and the Congress" when it come to Syria. Wow! That was quick.

The Logan Act:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
