Keith Ellison: Trump Should Be Impeached Because He Owns Hotels

Aspiring DNC Chair Keith Ellison said President Trump should have been impeached "on day one" because foreign "dignities" renting rooms in his hotels violates the Constitution's archaic, 229-year-old emoluments clause.

From New York Post:
“I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment,” Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said Wednesday on CNN.

“On day one, he was in violation of the emoluments clause. This is a part of the Constitution that says as president, you can’t get payments from a foreign power,” Ellison continued after the CNN audience, assembled for a debate between prospective DNC chairs, broke into applause.
“The day people checked into his hotel and started paying him, who were foreign dignitaries, he was in violation of that law. There’s already a lawsuit filed against him. And right now, it’s about only Donald Trump. It is about the integrity of the presidency,” said Ellison.

Another candidate for DNC top boss, former Fox News analyst Jehmu Greene, agreed.

“When he commits an impeachable offense, the Democratic Party has to be that last line of defense for our Constitution and for this country. We don’t have the luxury to take a back seat as this man is arrogantly marching us towards fascism,” Greene said.
Both of these clowns would make great DNC chairs.
