Attempted Crime: Corruption, Emoluments Clause of the Constitution

Attempted Crime: Corruption, Emoluments Clause of the Constitution

Story Reference Date: 10/17/2019 05:10 pm

Yet another Federal law broken today by Trump. The Federal laws he is breaking directly support the anti-corruption clauses in the United States Constitution. Trump announced today that next year’s G-7 gathering of world leaders will take place at the Trump National Doral Miami resort. Trump is violating the Constitution and arranging illegal arrangements to put $$ in his pockets in full view of everyone. He claims he will not benefit in any way, but clearly he will benefit personally in many ways. Taxpayers are ALREADY paying for Camp David including fulltime staff, maintenance, and security. Trump should make use of it and not cost the taxpayers extra money.

UPDATE: Even this corruption was too much for elected Republicans who spoke out in mass. After about a week, Trump backed off. Trump NEVER admitted this was against the law and directly against the anti-corruption Emoluments clauses in our Constitution. He even called them,

“the phony Emoluments clause”.

As a reminder, the Constitution is law. In fact, it is the supreme law of the land.
