There’s nothing liberals love better than empty gestures to make themselves feel good. The Los Angeles City Council has passed a resolution urging Congress to look into President Donald Trump’s business dealings and recent actions to determine if they warrant his impeachment.
Last Friday, the Council passed a unanimous resolution (10-0) calling on Congress to consider impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump for breaching the Foreign Emoluments Clause.
Under Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, the Foreign Emoluments Clause reads as follows:
“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.”
