Just as this writer has been saying for more than a year, Donald Trump has no respect of the Constitution and violates it or regular basis
(Greenbelt, MD) – A federal judge is refusing to toss a lawsuit that accuses President Trump of violating the Constitution by maintaining ownership of his businesses.
The judge rejected a Justice Department request to toss the suit, but the judge narrowed it so that it only includes the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC and not Trump’s other businesses.
The lawsuit says that by not cutting ties with his business, Trump is violating the “emoluments” clause of the Constitution that prevents officials from accepting gifts from foreign governments. A judge in New York dismissed a similar lawsuit last year.
