SCOTUS Throws Out Lawsuit Against President Trump!

Two lawsuits which alleged that President Trump was taking money from foreign actors have both been thrown out by SCOTUS.



Did anyone ever have any doubt? President Trump is an honest man. He has been since day one, but leftists and deep state actors just could not deal with it. 

Lawsuit after lawsuit, and two impeachments later we still have a man who is untarnished in reputation.   

One of the lawsuits was filed by The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) watchdog group, the other one from the AG of Maryland. Both held no water.

The Daily Wire reported: 

The Supreme Court tossed two lawsuits accusing former President Donald Trump of violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution on Monday, ending a roughly four-year legal battle over the former president’s businesses.

One of the lawsuits was filed by a watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), the day after Trump was inaugurated in 2017. The attorneys general of District of Columbia and Maryland brought a similar lawsuit in June of that year, according to Politico.

The lawsuits claimed that Trump was violating the Emoluments Clause prohibition against foreign bribes, which prohibits elected office-holders from receiving payments of any kind from foreign agents without the approval of Congress. The plaintiffs argued that anytime a foreign dignitary or official stayed at or patronized a business owned by Trump, such as the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., that constituted an unapproved payment.

Bloomberg Law had even more details: 

A key question was who, if anyone, could sue to enforce the emoluments clauses. As part of its order Monday, the Supreme Court set aside federal appeals court rulings that had let the suits proceed, taking a step urged by Trump’s Justice Department. The Supreme Court gave no explanation, and no justice publicly dissented.

Had the suits gone forward while Trump was president, the plaintiffs might have been able to force him to turn over some of his business records.

District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh said their lawsuit had secured an important trial court decision interpreting the emoluments clauses as barring federal officials from accepting almost anything of value from foreign or domestic governments.

“This decision will serve as precedent that will help stop anyone else from using the presidency or other federal office for personal financial gain the way that President Trump has over the past four years,” Racine and Frosh said in a joint statement.
