In a series of tweets, Schiff cited the Emoluments Clause, which he said provides that no "federal office holder can accept payment from a foreign nation without the explicit approval of Congress."
"There’s no question the Emoluments Clause applies to POTUS – including Trump. Severe remedies if its violated, including impeachment," Schiff tweeted.
