It's never happened before like this. The congressional Democrats are seeking an order compelling Trump to notify Congress when he's offered an emolument, giving them the option to vote on whether he can accept it. Blumenthal has called the emoluments clauses the Constitution's "premier anti-corruption provision".
Special Counsel Robert Mueller determined that "the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion".
"But one person knows more why he shouldn't be president of the United States, and that is Donald Trump", she said.
