A key Trump White House official may have violated the Constitution in 2015 when he delivered a paid speech in Moscow and dined with Vladimir Putin, congressional Democrats alleged Wednesday. According to the lawmakers, Michael Flynn, the controversial national security adviser, may have run afoul of the Constitution's Emoluments Clause. "I do public speaking. It was in Russia. It was a paid speaking opportunity." Since Donald Trump's election in November, ethics experts have raised concerns that the president's many overseas business interests might violate the Emoluments Clause—a provision that prohibits federal office holders from accepting financial benefits from foreign government.
