There is no question that Cantor broke the law, and the Attorney General should prosecute him for violation of the Logan Act, and for treason. Republicans do not get a pass because they are dealing with Israel, or because they are Republicans. Whether Cantor knew about the Logan Act or not, there is no excuse for taking the initiative to deal with Netanyahu outside the channels of government, and it is typical for Republicans to hold themselves above the law. George Bush and Dick Cheney authorized torture and are still free, setting a precedent for Cantor to break the law with assumed impunity.
