Obama's ethics chief: Trump fundraiser violated law

The Hill - The former top White House ethics lawyer from President Obama's White House accused President Trump on Wednesday of holding an "illegal" fundraiser at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

Former special ethics counsel Norm Eisen argued in a series of tweets that the reelection fundraiser — Trump's first since taking office — violates the emoluments clause of the Constitution because it is held at one of the hotels owned by a Trump company.
