Until the 2020 Election
TRUMP VIOLATES THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE.
CONGRESS: STOP HIM!
The emoluments clause is clear and sweeping:
“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.” Article 1, section 9, US Constitution.
Trump has crossed another red line by formally announcing that the Group of Seven summit of world leaders will gather at his private company, scheduling the summit for June 2020 at his Trump National Doral Miami golf resort in Florida.
That decision is without precedent in modern American history: Trump used his public office to direct a huge contract to himself.
Donald Trump is now racking up impeachable offenses in public, loud and proud.
Even Fox New’s legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano agrees. He called this “the most profound violation” as “one could create.”
Congress must stop him.

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
. . . Holding the G-7 summit at Trump’s Doral resort clearly violates the emoluments clause. This is an impeachable offense. Stop him!
Through Greg’s actions and inactions — the silence is deafening— he continues to signal that he fully supports Trump, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here, we will hold him accountable, we are working to flip his seat BLUE — #2020IsNow!
