A lawsuit filed by 200 congressional Democrats alleging President Trump is violating the Constitution by accepting payments from foreign governments can move forward, a federal judge ruled Friday.
The Constitution’s emoluments clause prohibits presidents from receiving payments from foreign governments, without congressional approval, and was meant to prevent corruption and foreign influence.
The article goes on to state the following:
Trump’s hotel just blocks away from the White House has hosted events for foreign governments and visiting officials while he’s been in office.
The group of Democrats, led by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., want the court to stop Trump from accepting such payments, or force the president to first get congressional approval.
