Twamp in violation of the Constitution

See this article. It hopes mainstream media will report on this but we know that they will not. So it's up to us in the social media-sphere to do so and share it widely. The emoluments clause of the Constitution says:

"No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state." [U.S. Constitution via Cornell University Law School Legal Information Institute, accessed 1/19/17]

Given Twamp's yuuuuge financial interests here and abroad, if he makes any profit on those foreign business he's in violation of this clause. Legal experts from both sides of the aisle have made clear that he must divest from these interests and put them in a blind trust. Twamp refuses to do so and instead gave management to his sons while still retaining ownership interest. The conflict of interest still exists and is a direct violation. Twamp counters that he is President (more like King) so he cannot by definition have a conflict. But that's not what the Constitution says.

See the link for much, much more on the legalities. Is the lamestream media really going to ignore this obvious and impeachable Constitutional offense? Seems so, so it's up to us folks. Please share the article far and wide.
