In a MAJOR development for the Resistance, a group of top Democratic Senators have moved to SUE Donald Trump over his egregious violations of the Constitution. This could lead to the court battle that ousts the Orange Tyrant once and for all.
Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., is now rallying his fellow Democrats to join him in a lawsuit against Trump’s outrageous violations of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. This would be a DEVASTATING blow to the Trump administration at a time when they’re taking fire from every direction.
So far, Blumenthal has asked his peers to contribute money and material assistance to his lawsuit. And in a recent letter to Trump, Blumenthal made his constitutional crusade clear.
You have a constitutional duty to request and receive Congress’s affirmative consent before accepting anything of value from a foreign government,” Blumenthal said. “We cannot countenance your violation of that duty.”
“We’re very seriously considering all the courses of action that may be open to us because these conflicts of interest are so serious,” Blumenthal said. “And they affect not only the president very deeply but also others in the administration.”
Blumenthal also instructed his spokeswoman, Maria McElwain, to spread the word. According to her, the Democrats are consulting with legal experts on the best way to move this lawsuit forward.
“There are ongoing conversations between members of the Senate and constitutional and ethics experts if the administration continues to fail to provide transparency and comply with the nation’s laws,” McElwain said. “Senator Blumenthal is focused on how to make sure that the Trump administration is held accountable for its unprecedented conflicts of interest.”
The good news is that several other Democrats are already on board with Blumenthal’s suit. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., is optimistic about the case.
“It’s being done by people who really have a great sense of ethics,” Feinstein said. “We’re working on all of these to get good solid legal answers.”
The American people have never seen a president so FLAGRANTLY defy the Constitution, so it’s about time we see the Democrats move to take Trump down in court. It looks like we have a great shot at winning, considering Trump’s abysmal record in court this year.

At this rate, it’s clear that Trump’s ALREADY staked out his claim as the worst president in American history. And the American people shouldn’t have to endure this outrageous shame in 2017.
Like our Democratic Senators, we have to keep fighting Trump because he’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to our country. Let’s commit to each other to keep the pressure up on Trump until he’s ousted from the White House once and for all.
