Appearing on MSNBC, Ben Rhodes claimed “foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden” leading some conservatives to question if Biden’s actions if reported accurately by Rhodes could be a violation of the “Logan Act.”
Rhodes said “Already you have the President-elect announcing his advisory board. He’s going to start announcing cabinet secretaries. The center of political gravity in this country and the world is shifting to Joe Biden.”
He then added “Foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden talking about the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th. If that reality hasn’t sunken in yet for some people in the White House, it will sink in when they have to leave on January 20th.”
Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv tweeted “Why is Ben Rhodes already engaging in unauthorized U.S diplomacy with foreign countries? Logan Act. Investigate immediately.”

This is Obama’s admin, Ben Rhodes.
Did he just willingly admit that Biden May have violated the Logan act?
