US lawmakers file anti-Trump lawsuit for alleged abuse of constitution


A group of 196 US senators and congressmen filed a lawsuit against US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, accusing him of alleged violations of the country's constitution for receiving foreign state payments without seeking congressional approval, the text of the lawsuit said, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

On Monday, the attorneys general of the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland filed a lawsuit against Trump alleging that the president had violated the country's legislation by receiving millions of dollars in payments and benefits from foreign governments since his inauguration.

 

"Plaintiffs, 30 members of the United States Senate and 166 members of the United States House of Representatives, bring this action against President Donald J. Trump to obtain relief from the President’s continuing violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution, which was designed to ensure that our nation’s leaders would not be corrupted by foreign influence or put their own financial interests over the national interest," the document said.
