Did this resolution pass?  Is it from the House of Representatives?  Can someone explain to me how this also is a nothingburger.

Sooooooooo, what?   What will this do?    Democrats are already opposing everything Trump does, to no avail.

Trump's objectionable conduct is part and parcel of his charm to that hardcore 35% who support him.  They're not going to waver and he's not going to change.  Thus, until the words in this document appear on a bill of impeachment, you're just killing trees.

Speaking just for myself, less is more. Focus on say just the Old Post Office and the Chinese Trademarks.

Or if there are two other more readily obvious violates pick those, but so far Trump has skated by because the objections lose significance simply because there are so many. So focus. And then stay on message.

So Just Two and stick with them. Trump Old Post Office LLC and Chinese Trademarks.

The wheels of progress are slow turning and you don't just whip up an impeachment.  You have to build momentum.

Yeah fark you. We will remember this.

The Domestic Emoluments clause (Article II, Section 1, Clause 7) does not allow for the consent of Congress. Payments by state governments (or the federal) to his businesses violate that clause. I would like to see evidence that no federal or state funds were paid for room stays, food purchases, green fees, cart rental or the like at his properties.

Dem voter here (although not a registered Democrat).

I am proud that they are keeping a record of every thing the man does that makes him an embarrassment to the office and us the laughing stock of the world. After 8 years of watching the right foam at the mouth over pretend grievances (like "he put mustard on that" and "he used binder clips") it is disgusting watching those same idiots pretend like these actual things aren't things.

How about you take all of the republicans who acted childish, immature, wasteful, disrespectful and petty. I'll take all the democrats throwing a tantrum in washington and we'll put them all in a single room. Then you and I can be disgusted of them- together.

The problem with that is that the Democrats would be wildly outnumbered in that room, and you'd still be a shiatty burned alt nobody cares about.

This is the gist of it:

This smacks of Ted Lieu trolling hard...and I like it.
