GOP's War On the Constitution: Lack Of Impeachment Over The Emoluments Clause Indicates Republicans Don't Respect The Constitution

2. Trump Said He Would "Drain The Swamp" And Now He Has Become The Swampiest Of Them All! And The GOP Support This.

4. Outlining Some Of The Attacks On The Constitution By The GOP's Bush Administration (Pre & Post 9/11)

This post is just meant to illustrate that the GOP don't care about the Constitution as they are forcing lawyers to litigate to follow the Constitution's Emolument's Clause (as there is no law on the books, i.e. since there is no law on the books the GOP have decided not to follow the Constitution). The GOP have been after the Constitutions for a while and this is just how they operate (i.e. as Destroyers Of The Constitution, Morality and pretty much anything they can destroy that is good).

CNN: New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood discusses with CNN's Christiane Amanpour her decision to sue President Donald Trump's charitable foundation along with its directors -- the President, his sons Eric and Donald Jr. and daughter Ivanka, alleging they violated state and federal charities law.

NY AG investigating whether Trump is breaking emoluments law David Fahrenthold, political reporter for The Washington Post, talks about the challenging of finding out what foreign governments are spending money at Trump properties.

EXCLUSIVE: DC AG on court’s green light for Trump emoluments lawsuit A federal judge has rejected President Trump’s efforts to stop a lawsuit alleging he violated the constitution’s emoluments clause by continuing to do business with foreign governments. DC Attorney General Karl Racine, who brought the case, tells Ali Velshi what’s next.

Lawsuit: President Trump is violating the Constitution The President is being sued for allegedly violating the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution because his hotels may accept payments from foreign governments. Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe, one of the attorneys who filed the lawsuit, joins Lawrence.

Congress, of course, is not intervening to protect the Constitution thus betraying their oath of office, as usual;

Laurence Tribe: A series of high crimes and misdemeanors

High Crimes &Misdemeanors...

The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article ISection 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution,[1] that prohibits the federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving giftsemoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress. Also known as the Emoluments Clause, it was designed to shield the republican character of the United States against so-called "corrupting foreign influences." This shield is reinforced by the corresponding prohibition on state titles of nobility in Article I, Section 10, and more generally by the Republican Guarantee Clause in Article IV, Section 4.[2]

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.[3]

The Framers' intentions for this clause were twofold: to prevent a society of nobility from being established in the United States, and to protect the republican forms of government from being influenced by other governments. In Federalist No. 22Alexander Hamiltonstated, "One of the weak sides of republics, among their numerous advantages, is that they afford too easy an inlet to foreign corruption." Therefore, to counter this "foreign corruption" the delegates at the Constitutional Convention worded the clause in such a way as to act as a catch-all for any attempts by foreign governments to influence state or municipal policies through gifts or titles.[4]

For example;

Saudi money floods Donald Trump's NYC hotel Hypothetically, if you wanted to bribe the President of the United States, perhaps the simplest, cleanest way to do it would be to throw money at his businesses.
