111 officials from 65 foreign governments 250 Trump administration officials & 90 members of Congress have spent money at Trump properties since he took office — a clear violation of the (not phony) Emoluments Clause. Here are 3 ways to hold our grifter-in-chief accountable:

@HardballChris : "Each new deposition has bolstered the central charge of the inquiry: that the President traded away the national interest in favor of his own, using the power of his office to extort a foreign ally."

1⃣ What does the Constitution say? “...And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State”

It's hard to imagine a scenario more concerning to our Founders than this: A president using the power of his office to press a foreign leader for dirt on a political opponent. But we have a system of checks and balances. And we will hold this President accountable.

"I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election." Every American should read this whistleblower complaint.

It’s bad enough Trump sought help from a foreign power in the last election. It’s worse still that he obstructed the investigation into his misconduct. Now he‘s admitted using his office to coerce another country to interfere in 2020. I fully support the impeachment inquiry.

It doesn’t get more serious than this. It is a betrayal of his oath of office for President Trump to pressure a foreign country to interfere in our elections. And yet that is exactly what @realDonaldTrump  did. #TruthExposed

We had no choice but to move forward with an impeachment inquiry, And our focus will be on the president’s fundamental breach of his oath office. Coercing a foreign nation to interfere in our election is never ok, No matter what the president and his defenders say.

The central fact is this: the President corruptly abused his office to coerce a foreign government to interfere in the 2020 election. His White House then tried to cover this up and got caught. That's the story.

The President cannot use the power of his office to pressure foreign leaders to investigate his political opponents. His rant this morning reinforces the urgency of our work. America is a Republic, if we can keep it.

In the face of determined threats from homegrown hate groups, perhaps a reminder to those in the Senate on their oath of office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic...”

“No Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust ... shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, ... of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”* *Constitution does not apply to payments at Trump Hotels, with feckless GOP.

The President would have left American students in a foreign jail because their families didn’t lavish sufficient praise on him. How can someone in such a big office be so small?
