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:
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”
@realDonaldTrump wants you to think that these are the same: -his plan to skim millions of dollars from foreign governments while serving as president -his predecessor signing a deal with a movie studio AFTER leaving office
Foreign Office minister @murrisonMP responds to @DavidDavisMP 's urgent question regarding the welfare of young British nationals currently living in Syria. For the latest news in politics, head here:
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.
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.
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...”
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?
