Republicans continue to stonewall investigations into Trump’s ties to Russia. Multiple Congress members state there is no need to investigate. The Republican majority voted keep Trump’s tax returns hidden.
Why does Trump refuse to share his tax returns? He has more to lose than just being tied to Russia. He could have unknown financial intaglements with several foreign countries, which could make him vulnerable to the Emolument Clause. Breaking the Emolument Clause could be cause for Impeachment. What is the Emolument Clause, you may ask?
In Article I of the Constitution.
“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
This clause was included in the Constitution to keep American Presidents judgement from being swayed by foreign governments. If a President owes large amounts of money to another government, he may be influenced by that relationship to make deals in his best interest. Or the President could be offered money to make deals in the foreign country’s interest.
This is Trumps issue. If he is financially entangled with other country is he truly working in the best interest of the American people or in his own interest? As long as Republicans control both houses in Congress we may never know.
The Republicans block any effort to investigate Trumps ties to Russia because they could lose power and credibility.
Is America being held hostage by Russian assets and the Republicans Congress? How deep does the treachery go? When the truth is revealed will it be the end of the Republicans party as we know it? #Resist
President Trump, we have been saying Resist and will continue until the truth is revealed!
