Donald Trump could be looking at his final days at the White House as new evidence shows that a government agency used taxpayer money to pay Trump to stay at one of his properties.
Property of the People, who sent out the documents, sent out a statement to PolitcusUSA. The group revealed that “The White House National Security Council (NSC) paid over $1,000 for an unidentified guest to stay two nights at Donald Trump’s luxury resort Mar-a-Lago, according to an invoice obtained by transparency group Property of the People via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.”
The payment was made by using a U.S. government charge card, and according to the statement, this “constitutes the first documented violation by President Trump of the Constitution’s Domestic Emoluments Clause.”
Trump’s unwillingness to divest from his business might have just put his presidency on the line. The Constitution’s anti-corruption Domestic Emoluments Clause “prohibits the President from receiving emoluments (profitable payments, benefits, or advantages) paid by federal or state governments, beyond the salary approved by Congress.”
This means Trump violated the Constitution and a hard case could be made for his impeachment.
