Judge: Dems Free To Sue Trump For Violating Constitution



Congressional Democrats now have standing to sue President Donald Trump over alleged violations of the emoluments clause.

YES PLEASE  NO THANKS

According to Business Insider, a federal judge ruled Friday that roughly 200 members of Congress can sue Trump because he did not ask Congress before accepting anything that could be considered a foreign emolument. The arcane constitutional clause clause bars elected officials from accepting gifts, payments, or benefits from foreign governments without the consent of Congress.

Trump's legal team insists the revenue his business generates from foreign entities is not an emolument. The Trump Organization is still owned by the President, even though he passed off control of the company to his two adult sons and a senior executive prior to taking office.

The business has multiple overseas ventures, and the organization's Washington, DC, hotel is often patronized by foreign officials.
