Second Nexus: Top Ethics Lawyers Take Trump to Court Citing Constitutional Violations
The legal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a federal lawsuit in the Southern District of New York at 9 AM today accusing President Donald Trump of violating the Constitution by allowing his businesses to accept payments from foreign governments. Under the constitutional provision, “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 is hard to know where to begin when going down the list of conflicts that are in direct violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. The easiest target is his Washington D.C. hotel but his numerous other holdings overseas are also subject to conflicts of interest. He has not divested himself of his many complicted assets...only turned over directorships to his sons. But even that relinquishment of operation to his sons has not apparently yet been implemented as there are several reports by the relevant agencies that no paper work has yet been filed.
It may just be another con. He is still profiting 100 percent from all of his assets. Nothing has changed.
