Representative Jamie Raskin asserts that former President Donald Trump violated the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause by accepting millions of dollars from foreign governments during his presidency.

Raskin emphasizes the absolute prohibition in the Emoluments Clause against receiving any form of payment or gift from foreign entities without explicit consent from Congress, and criticizes Trump for not adhering to this requirement.

This follows the release of a report from Democrats on the House Oversight Committee titled “White House for Sale,” which details payments made to Trump’s businesses by foreign governments. (Trending: Hollywood A-Listers Revealed In Epstein Court Documents)

Chris Hayes said, “We now have concrete evidence of Donald Trump received millions of dollars from foreign governments while he was president of the United States. It comes from a new 156-page report from Democrats on the House Oversight Committee titled White House for Sale, how princes, prime ministers and premieres paid off President Trump.”

“Do you think what you found in these are millions of dollars going from governments to the pockets of the president by his businesses, all out in the open, do you think that that is a violation of the Emoluments Clause?” asked the host.

“No question,” replied Raskin.

“The Emoluments Clause was stated in an absolute categorical terms that the president, and no federal official can take any money of any kind whatsoever an emolument or an office or a present or a title from the prince, king, or foreign government without the explicit consent of Congress. Every other president in our history has scrupulously obeyed that command,” explained the lawmaker.
