I read that there's a law forbidding U.S. citizens from discussing foreign relations with foreign public officials. Can anyone tell me if this is true and, if so, what is the name of this law?
I've tracked down a Logan Act, which prohibits NEGOTIATION with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. It's possible this is what the reference I read was referring to.
However, the item I read said U.S. citizens aren't allowed to even discuss foreign affairs with foreign public officials. So I just wanted to verify if this is true. If it is true, I'm anxious to learn the details. Could a U.S. citizen be prosecuted for simply telling a Latin American official "I don't like the way the U.S. continues to exploit your country"?
