Donald Trump Is Holding An Illegal Reelection Fundraiser At His DC Hotel Right Now

Norm Eisen of CREW is warning that President Trump’s reelection fundraiser at his own DC hotel is illegal and in violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

Eisen tweeted:

Trump is brazenly and blatantly violating the Constitution. He is personally profiting off of this fundraiser because the donors are spending money to stay at the President’s own hotel. This is illegal, and Eisen’s organization CREW is suing Trump for different Emoluments Clause violated related to this same hotel. Trump didn’t want the press covering this event because he is engaging in illegal activity while occupying the White House.

Donald Trump has only been in office for months, but his violations of the law are so numerous that it is only a matter of time before the law catches up to a president who specializes in conflicts of interest and corruption.
