Fiona Hill decried Republican lawmakers for suggesting that Ukraine, rather than Russia, sought to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election.

The lion’s share of those publicly-financed outings–and the overwhelming majority of the public’s money spent–occurred at the president’s palatial golf courses–identified via the umbrella term: “Trump National Golf Club.”.

A brief refresher: the Emoluments Clauses refer to two distinct sections of the U.S. Constitution: (1) the Title of Nobility Clause located at Article I, Section 9, Clause 8; and the Presidential Emoluments Clause located at Article II, Section 1, Clause 7. »
