AGs Sue Trump

While the suit is clearly grandstanding and another symptom of Democrats trying to overturn an election that they lost, I’m interested in seeing the case progress. The first question I wonder is whether or not these Attorneys General have standing?

The state of Maryland and the District of Columbia plan to sue President Trump on Monday, alleging that he has violated the Constitution by accepting foreign money through his business empire, according to a person familiar with the plans.

The attorneys general of Maryland and D.C., both Democrats, have scheduled a news conference for noon ET in Washington.

The suit, to be filed in federal court in Maryland, will allege that Trump has violated the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which prohibits the president from accepting payments from foreign governments without the consent of Congress, according to the person.

    This is just the beginning. Trump is an absolute disgrace. The sooner this moron, or i believe Owen said it best when he called him an idiot, resigns the better off we will be. Pence Now! Pence Now!

    Clinton foundation was peddling their political influence and there was “nothing to see here” attitude by liberals.   Trump is just running business empires as always providing an actual service and liberals go nuts.

    I would like a President Pence, however, liberals are not going to cut him any more of a break than they do Trump.   Radical liberalism is a hate group.

    Elections have consequences and at the end of the day, Trump won.  For some, election outcomes are OK as long as the results are what they wanted then the tantrums begin.  Maybe they can find a judge in Hawaii to approve their lawsuit.

    I don’t care if they find a judge in Guam.
    Trumps or his posse had inappropriate relations with Russia.
    When five of his top people failed to disclose their meetings that can’t just be a coincidence. Trump is a disgrace. Nixon times ten. Keep supporting him and in my mind you are aiding and abetting a criminal. And don’t give me that innocent until proven guilty crap because on this site it is common to chant lock em up.

    Interesting proposition.  President Pence, to me, does have a lot of appeal.  Using the same standards, the Cabal, (Obama, Clinton, Holder, Lynch, et al) would soon be behind bars.  Add to that list Feinstein (with her husband’s questionable billion dollar contract), Sanders (with his wife’s questionable money), Biden (with his daughter’s $100K boo boo); we could end up removing most if not all of the US Congress.  Undoubtedly, the likes of Al Sharpton and the rest of the scofflaws would join the Cabal behind bars.

    Of course, the snowflakes and their antifa pals would have a fit so we would most likely have to start detention/re-education camps.  Reminds me of something I heard in the past:

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.


    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

    I couldn’t agree more… Martin Niemoller wrote that poem condemning other Germans for not speaking out against the Nazis.
    When will other Republicans speak out against the espionage and treason.
    It is now common knowledge the Russians made it into many county clerk voting systems. But hey, why not ignore what’s happening right NOW a bring up the past. Maybe, someday, you can write a poem memorializing how f$%*&#!× stupid we were.
    Elections do have consequences and so does breaking the law…
    “Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me”
    Republicans better wake up or this will be their motto.

    I agree the Republicans need to do something against the espionage and treason of  the Cabal, (Obama, Clinton, Holder, Lynch, et al) and the Administrative State.  The progressives, liberals, whatever noun identifies them, have been after our 1st, 2nd, .. rights for some time.  This has got to stop.
