Appeals Court Revives Emoluments Suit Against Trump

Law & Crime reports:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Friday brought back to life an emoluments-related lawsuit against President Donald Trump. The lawsuit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) had previously been dismissed for lack of standing. The lawsuit is revived at a time when “potential violations of the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution ” are under the microscope.

The case at hand was argued before and decided by Circuit Judges Christopher Droney, Pierre Leval and John Walker. The Court decided that U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels’ dismissal of the suit was vacated and sent back to the lower court. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of high-end hospitality business plaintiffs, alleged that the plaintiffs have been harmed by the president unlawfully profiting off of his office, as “foreign and domestic government clientele” keep patronizing Trump properties.

Just last night Glorious Leader again promoted his business via his Twitter account by retweeting the claim below. It turns out the award comes from a little-known British magazine called “Luxury Lifestyles.”
