Dems To Sue The President: Trump’s Conflicts Of Interest Are Coming Back To Bite Him In The A**

Both House and Senate Democrats are now planning to file a lawsuit against Donald Trump, saying that his business empires has built up conflicts of interest that violates the constitution, according to Politico.

“We’ll be suing to stop his violations of the emoluments clause,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) told the outlet.

Politico reported that the lawsuit won’t be filed by Democrats until next week at the earliest. At this point dozens of House and Senate Democrats have already agreed to sign on.

According to Nadler, 78 House Democrats and 25 Senate Democrats have already signed-on to the suit.

“I’m proud of my Judiciary members for bringing it up,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), another House Judiciary Committee member, told Politico. “It’s about time.”

The lawsuit has been discussed by Senate Democrats, led by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), since April.

“Senator Blumenthal is focused on how to make sure that the Trump administration is held accountable for its unprecedented conflicts of interest, and ensure that no one — not even the president — is above the law,” Blumenthal’s spokeswoman said in April.

According to the emoluments clause of the Constitution:

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.
