Nearly 200 Democrats Sue Donald Trump Citing Emoluments Clause Violation

Written by  M.J. Randolph

In a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, 195 Democrats from the Senate and Congress filed suit against President Donald Trump because they believe he has violated the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause.

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal and Congressman John Conyers led this lawsuit, following another by the Attorney Generals of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

What is an “emoluments clause” violation?

The Emoluments Clause [ARTICLE I, SECTION 9, CLAUSE 8] says, “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: 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.”

On Wednesday, Conyers told Reuters, "Trump has conflicts of interest in at least 25 countries, and it appears he’s using his presidency to maximize his profits.” Not surprisingly, no Republicans are joining in on the lawsuit, though Blumenthal welcomes them. Fat chance of that happening. The Democrats are still unable to accept the results of the November election, so they're doing everything in their power to nullify them. However, there is a famous quote from President Obama after his 2008 win:

Are the Democrats ever going to do any work for the country? It seems like their days are filled with hate speech, innuendo, inciting violence and wasting our tax money on all this garbage they keep harping on. It is so sad that they are a party of "Sore Losers". The world is laughing at us!

President Trump should counter sue them for being idiots!

President Trump ought to file a counter suit against the 195, charging them with malicious prosecution and filing a frivolous lawsuit. These partisan idiots shouldn't be allowed to get away with this kind of nonsense.

I do think Mid Term 2018, will be a cleaning and the party will loose their majority, when you go against 65 to 70% of the populations wishes how does one expect to stay in power. The cracks are alredy starting with the close race in Kansas which before Trump would have been a near land slide and the close race in nearly every election since Trump took office.

Dick Blumenthal, back in 2009, under threat of the "law", pursued executives of AIG who were due bonuses (agreed to by the Feds). Blumenthal brow beat them into giving up their bonuses which were their only compensation for staying with AIG as the government (Feds) had agreed. Protesters even went to these execs' home. Blumenthal refused to "protect" those Connecticut residents from these demonstrators.
True to form, government's shaking down citizens and again Mr. Blumenthal is leading the charge, in this case, against President Trump.. But, none of this is orchestrated; it's so spontaneous...Not even 24 hours of bipartisanship ....but, that's the Dems...resistance, obstruction, obfuscation, muddying, delaying,

The "Emoluments Clause" does not apply to the President or Vice President, they are simply judge shopping to waste ever more taxpayer money...Take note...and simply stop voting for democrat's ever again! They care NOT for the citizen, but only their own enrichment & lust for power...period!

Time to clean house with anyone left over from the Obama administration.

The Democrats want to Trump to make his fortune the way they did, "by screwing the taxpayers out of their hard earned tax money", instead of becoming wealthy before becoming a politician. They can not accept the concept of public service without compensation. If Trump makes it for 8 years, they will still be trying to dislodge him on the last day. There is nothing honorable or patriotic about a Democrat. They all are "self-serving", corrupt politicians that line their own pockets while spewing lies about caring for the poor and less fortunate as a cover for their corruption.

The political schizophrenia within 'Amerika' is increasing by the day - and many of the 'Republicans' are as guilty as the 'Democrats'
- So when and how will this increasingly wicked country self-destruct ? - Just one example is the Ancient Roman Empire !
- For "the certainty of the words of truth" are exactly what "the Lord Jesus Christ" personally stated:
"Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation;
and a house divided against a house falleth."

MAYBE ALL THE DEMONTURDS WILL FALLETH

Trump should stop paychecks to Congress until some laws and changes are passed helping to make this Country function again. Once the slugs don't have money deals will be made. It is insulting they spend day in and day out thinking of things that don't help this Country. So sorry the guy made his money and was successful . Blood sucking Politicians should be investigated and especially OBAMA an Clintons how they are all multi millionaires on the Salary they are paid. We should have been protesting OBAMA day in an day out for what he did to this Country but we gave him 8 years and soft ball obstruction. CONGRESS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!!! They think they are demi gods. I would fire their asses if they worked for me. Deadbeats!!!

Might as well get used to this barrage of phony suits, the liberals have nothing constructive to offer so they spend their time thinking up ways to waste taxpayer dollars attacking Trump.

Sooo sick of the Dems who are hell bent on obstructing the Trump Administration. It is becoming ever harder to keep a civil tongue toward them. Now where is that middle finger emoji?

The dems have lowered the bar so far during the past 8 years with obama leading the way; and for the most part the republicans in DC have sat and watched. Now the dems suddenly want to quote the constitution at every move. Time for the republicans to remind the dems of obama's words when he & the dems disregarded any attempt of republicans to take part in the house & senate movements.

Yes. Starting to think it's time for me to get involved at my local Republican organization.
Anger is a great motivator and perhaps I have been too complacent by not jumping in with the locals.
