The judge said it's a political argument that should be handled by politicians, God help us.

But U.S. District Judge George Daniels, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, said the accusation is a political one that should be handled by Congress, not a courtroom.

"As the only political branch with the power to consent to violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, Congress is the appropriate body to determine whether, and to what extent, Defendant's conduct unlawfully infringes on that power," Daniels wrote. "If Congress determines that an infringement has occurred, it is up to Congress to decide whether to challenge or acquiesce to Defendant's conduct. As such, this case presents a non-justiciable political question."

I'm pretty sure that isn't the end of the subject.


You first need to learn what an emolument is. It ain't connected to a retail business that Trump isn't even running.

It most certainly is not. One can be sure that the instant the Democrats control Congress it'll become a major issue. And make no mistake, sooner or later the Democrats will control Congress.

again, Trump's whole connections between his political and business enterprises are murky, because he's not putting his business interests in a trust and he is making money off of them, such as charging the Secret Service for space in Trump Tower to protect his family.

You're not very smart are ya, the secret service rented an apartment from another individual that owns it, not Trump. Also even your hero Jimmy Carter turned over the operation of his farm to family, he didn't divest himself either.

Okay, except nobody thought Carter was getting filthy rich farming peanuts. They called him "the Peanut Farmer" as a term of derision.

Sorry, bud, Trump is going to get in trouble over these abuses of power.

Carter turned his business over to his mother and brother, the concept is the same with Trump. Party is the only difference, hypocrite. BTW Trump is already rich and the way he jets around the world, I guess Carter is too.

Well, that would be fine, if Carter's mother and brother had been involved in daily operations in the White House, then you'd have an argument.

Given his sons and Jared and Ivanka have roles in the government while still running his companies is that the problem here is.

Why are you lying, his sons have no function in the government.

Throw out all the regulations and let it be the wild west again. I know the DOJ threw out any remaining regs on the ADA today. What a wonderful USA we live in today.

Deflection already? What does the ADA have to do with the emoluments clause?

That said, you got a link, I'd be interested in reading about it as long as it's not a huffy post propaganda piece.

Yep, but I guess you've missed all the lefty claims about Trump violating the emoluments clause. They had pinned huge hopes on the two suits that were dismissed. Just another swing and a miss when it comes to using the courts to undermine Trump.
