Trump Gets Sued On Wednesday

Jun 15, 2017

196 Congressional plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against President Trump. The basis of the suit is the little-known Emoluments Clause. Because President Trump is allegedly receiving foreign money through the Trump Organization without congressional approval, he is supposedly violating the clause. The Emoluments clause has never been litigated. If the suit is found to have standing, Democrats would be able to have discovery of President Trump’s financial records including his tax returns. Democrats will judge shop. They will look for a partisan judge, appointed by Obama or Clinton to get the outcome they desire.
