Rep. Lofgren Introduces H. Con. Res. 51

Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (D-CA19) introduced a bill calling on President Trump to respect the Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution. The clause pertains to the receiving of foreign gifts and foreign corruption.

As evidence of potential violations of this clause the bill cites leases at Trump properties by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and Iraq that have occurred during his Presidency. Specifically, the bill references a $270,000 bill paid for a lobbying firm by Saudi Arabia at a Trump property in Washington, D.C.
