WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department allowed at least seven foreign governments to rent luxury condominiums in New York’s Trump World Tower in 2017 without approval from Congress, according to documents and people familiar with the leases, a potential violation of the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments clause.

 

Congressional staffers confirmed to Reuters that the Trump World Tower lease requests were never submitted to Congress. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said his committee has been “stonewalled” in its efforts to obtain detailed information about foreign government payments to Trump’s businesses.

 

“This new information raises serious questions about the President and his businesses’ potential receipt of payments from foreign governments,” Cummings said in a statement to Reuters. “The American public deserves full transparency.”

So why isn't Oilerman concerned about Biden's son's windfall of a billion dollars while Biden was in office? Or the $143M that Uranium one investors gave to the Clinton foundation. Are you fucking serious? Somebody rented a luxury condo vs hundreds of millions and a billion? 

 

Renting a condo is not a gift.

Let me get this right. There is a 90 story tower right next to the UN in Manhattan.  How would renting those units at the regular rate be illegal? Just because they are foreign governments? But foreign governments gave billions to democrats during the Obama years. If they paid an excessive rate you might have something. Did these governments just hand Trump or a family member hundreds of million of dollars for no reason? The a national state run bank give one of Trump's sons a billion dollars?

 

Libtards have no problem with Biden's payoff and have no problem with the massive payoffs of the Clinton foundation so shut the fuck up. .

“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.”

There is the clause. Where does it say you cannot do normal business or provide goods or services at a normal rate? I own a company that makes candy bars. I sell a box of 100 candy bars to some diplomat for $50. That does not apply. 

 

The clause pertains to gifts or excessive payment or a payment that would not have normally occurred if you were not in office. International governments rented those units before Trump was in office. That is what they are for. 

 

The foreign donations to the Clinton foundation and to Joe Biden's son are classic cases of this and libtards could give a fuck.

An investigation into emoluments clause violations by Trump would be the quickest way to show the public how corrupt Trump is.

Do you really think there are people on either side don't know how corrupt he is?

Look man....I'm not nieve enough to think all corruption would be eliminated....it happens on both side.  A president should never be able to behave like this.....it's beneath the office and a shame you don't see it.

Foreign governments made direct payments to the Clinton foundation. That is not even in dispute.

An intelligent person can discern the difference between renting or selling condos in a luxury tower near the UN to a massive cash payment. You think Hunter Biden gets that billion from the bank of china without his dad being in office? That is exactly what the clause is for!
