Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) said late Sunday that he will be a monthly donor to the American Civil Liberties Union to combat any unconstitutional actions President-elect Donald Trump may take after he is sworn in.

In a tweet using an expletive, Lieu said he's going to begin donating to the ACLU "because the resistance to any unconstitutional crazy ... from President Trump starts now."

Lieu has a law degree from Georgetown University, is a colonel in the Air Force Reserve and was just elected to serve a second term in Congress.
