Supreme Court Hands Dems Loss Against Trump

White House [Public Domain]

The Supreme Court has rejected a plea to take a case proposed by 29 Senate Dems who claim that President Trump violated the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which prohibits self-dealing by federal officeholders. In February, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the senators lacked the legal right to sue the President effectively prompting the senators to attempt to have the Supreme Court review their ruling. The denial leaves the current ruling by the Circuit Court in place.

In their brief, Democrats alleged that Trump is accepting “unauthorized financial benefits from foreign states,” because of his ownership of multiple companies that have business with foreign governments.

According to reports from The Hill:

“The Members can, and likely will, continue to use their weighty voices to make their case to the American people, their colleagues in the Congress and the President himself, all of whom are free to engage that argument as they see fit,” the judges wrote.

“But we will not — indeed we cannot — participate in this debate.”

The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to take up two other emoluments lawsuits against the president after a pair of lower courts ruled that suits brought by the liberal nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the attorneys general for Washington, D.C., and Maryland could move forward.

The lawmakers’ lawsuit that was rejected by the high court on Tuesday hit a roadblock in the lower courts largely because when they filed it in June 2017, Democrats did not represent the majority of either congressional chamber.

The monsters holding office in the so called democRAT party have maligned the party name. They are so into the Communist agenda, it seems more fitting to call them what they are. As such, they need to be sued for misappropriation of tax funds for mischief against the Prez, and tried for treason for their unAmerican activities. We are sick of you.

Gosh, you would think these Fascist Communist Democrats would give it up, ya know, trying to get at Trump using whatever they can, legal or otherwise, to do so…
ONCE AGAIN, LET ME REPEAT THIS, TRUMP IS PRESIDENT….accept that fact and start doing your jobs that you were elected for, ya know, the job of representing those that voted for you to do to the best of your ability…but if you have not ability and only one adgenda, getting rid of Trump, voters know how to get rid of you.

To bad that the big money are giving so much credit to Obama and Biden winning this election they are saying that Biden will win in a land slide but thats not going to happen if the American people have anything to say about it Biden even with Obama help cant get any real people to support him and Thank God that President Trump is our President
I pray for PTrump and his Admins that they may all stay safe and Thanks for this ruling
President Trump has not had anything to do with his business since before he took office and they can say all they want but what are they not saying about all the people who are in Washington that own business and use that money to do things that are really bad and that includes Biden

Donald Trump had plenty of money BEFORE he became President. He has no reason to steal. Biden on the other hand, and his whole family for that matter, are a bunch of thieving turds. Check it out Tony!

Their interpretation of the emoluments clause was something of a stretch and rather absurd to start with.
