Judge Says Lawmakers Can Sue Trump On Emoluments

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, in Washington, D.C., said the lawmakers have standing to sue Trump. They allege he violates the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, as his hotels and other establishments around the world profit from spending and favors by foreign governments.

Justice Department lawyers, representing Trump, contended that only Congress, not its members acting individually, could deal with the emoluments clause.

The Foreign Emoluments Clause bars U.S. officials from accepting gifts or payments from foreign governments unless Congress consents. It's a visible issue, as some foreign dignitaries pay to stay at Trump's hotel while on official visits to the White House.

Trump began his presidency by choosing unlike other presidents in recent decades to keep ownership of his businesses. He hasn't asked Congress for consent under the Foreign Emoluments Clause, and the Republican-controlled House and Senate haven't raised the issue with him.

Notice it's filed in the DC area where they all hate Trump. That was intentional. So they picked that hotel as well.

Republicans don't ever do anything wrong. They're defending tradition with their antics. And no such thing as too far when doing what's right for the preservation of nineteenth century conservative values

The sad part is that there are favorable jurisdictions to pick.
