BREAKING: Reps. Grijalva and Gallego Among 196 Democratic Members Of Congress Suing President Trump (READ)

Arizona Reps. Ruben Gallego (D-CD7) and Raul Grijalva (D-CD3) are among the 196 Representatives and Senators filing suit against President Donald Trump on Wednesday. The
Democrats are claiming that the President is violating the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause by not obtaining Congress' permission before accepting monies from foreign governments in his hotels, office towers and more.

Arizona's other two Democratic Representatives - Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) and Tom O'Halleran (D-CD1) did not sign on to the case being filed in U.S. DC District Court. Nationally, 166 of the House's 194 Democrats are participating, as are 30 of the 46 Democratic Senators.

The Representatives and Senators are reportedly splitting the litigation costs, and are paying out of their pockets or their campaign committee's coffers.

Here is the Complaint:
