Calling the Constitution’s main anti-corruption clause “phony” shows Trump’s contempt for the Constitution. It’s there in black & white.

Trump caving on his Doral deal only redoubles our determination in court. We’re suing (Blumenthal v Trump) to stop him from lining his pockets w/foreign payments—possibly putting him in foreign leaders’ pockets. Our lawsuit says: No more personal self-enrichment at public expense

Trump’s botched&back-tracked Doral deal highlights the need for our lawsuit—asking the courts to enforce the Constitution against his continuing corruption. We’re going full bore in filings this week against ongoing foreign payments&benefits to his hotels, resorts&other projects.

Trump’s yielding to huge pressure on the Doral deal doesn’t excuse his continuing corrupt acceptance of other illegal foreign payments & benefits. Our Emoluments lawsuit moves ahead full throttle.

Sickening. History will judge us complicit if America permits this potential genocide, unfolding in real time, in plain sight, as Turkey blocks the Kurds’ retreat. Trump has been rolled. America should not be.

Erdogan flagrantly ignoring ceasefire & the Kurds literally begging President Trump for help after his unforgivable betrayal. Allowing the ethnic cleansing of a key American partner is stomach churning.

Asked if an impeachment inquiry nullifies an election, Sen. Richard Blumenthal says it's about "removing from power someone who has abused that power, in fact, violated the Constitution. That's the reason that the founders had the impeachment process."

"It would spark an uproar," says Sen. Richard Blumenthal, asked what would happen if President Trump were to pardon Rudy Giuliani. "I would say that kind of pardon itself might be an impeachable offense."

This sham of a ceasefire is not slowing or curbing the Turkish attack on the Kurds. Sanctions & other swift, stiff steps are still needed to defend our partners after Trump’s reckless, reprehensible betrayal & the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

The evidence reported in these documents shows a decrepit culture of contempt for safety. These reports indicate that Boeing consciously & deliberately misled the FAA through its employees. I will be demanding answers & so should the American public.

Long overdue action from JUUL, but more must be done. Menthol products need to be removed from shelves&FDA must stop delaying regulatory action. Further comprehensive steps from oversight agencies should be instituted to end the e-cigarette epidemic facing communities nationwide.

The President got rolled, & so did our national integrity. It is yet another betrayal to our Kurdish partners & a boon to our adversaries, Russia & Iran.

This illusory solution is a catastrophic, roundabout way for President Trump to give President Erdogan exactly what he wanted: a Kurdish withdrawal, & free reign over northern Syria.

This supposed ceasefire is a deceptive bait & switch that should redouble determination to pass our strong sanctions bill. Do not be fooled—the announced ceasefire is neither a military victory for our Kurdish partners in Syria, nor a diplomatic victory for the Trump Admin.

These world leaders & their staff won’t be staying at Trump’s resort for free. The money made & free promotion from this international event will line the President’s & his family’s wallets—& it won’t be pocket change.

What are the chances that out of all the hotels in the country, the G7 leadership chose Trump’s? Actually, there’s a pretty simple explanation: corruption.

Our Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves. Holding an international summit of world leaders at the President’s resort is not just a conflict of interest, it is unconstitutional. One more piece of evidence for our lawsuit.

History will haunt this retreat. Bipartisan action is needed now to condemn Trump’s reckless, reprehensible betrayal that is allowing our Kurdish partners to be slaughtered. I join Sens & to introduce a bill sanctioning&ending arms sales to Turkey
