Why wouldn't Congress have standing?
Even though Sen. McConnell, Former(ly) Speaker Ryan, and now Speaker Pelosi have abdicated their respective roles here, they are the ones who have the power and the Duty to act on this.

He has been taking miney from the start. He invited all these big wig gathering at his resirt in Florida. What about his Children top child has a Contact with Sauda Arriba that gives his daughter 1 million dollar's for what ever they agreed upon. She is flying Airforce one with her father to other Counties why? That kid who is his adviser, why is this private citizen gets to know our weakness, security ways, and not even passed security checks. That man took several millions of dollars on his hotel from investors. Please no more Trump, no more Republicans decideing who is President. They have the media and Republicans only counting the Eletrical Colleges Vote. 270 gets you the White House. 19 States have passed Laws to do away with EC. Stand up be proud and make changes, hold him on Impeachment for Russia, the Wall, and get his tax returns. He works for US.

He has to have an Audit. He needs to be investigated in all his secret banks that him and his children have. What about Global warming. He as hasnt heard of Category 5 Hurricanes. People stand and be heard!!!

The first president to have business with foreigners while in office was George Washington, you deranged never Trumpers. By the 1790s, Washington was wealthy primarily because of real estate — renting and selling his vast holdings. As with Mr. Trump’s hotels, Washington’s renters or purchasers could include foreigners, you hysterical fools.

One letter written by Washington deserves great attention in the current debate. On Dec. 12, 1793, Washington wrote to Arthur Young, an officer of the U.K. Board of Agriculture, an entity newly created and funded by Parliament at the initiative of William Pitt. The president asked for Young’s help in renting out his Mount Vernon lands to secure an income for his retirement. Not finding customers in America, he wondered if Young, with his agricultural connections, could find and organize some would-be farmers in his home country and send them over.
