Drumpf Is Done. (again)

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/22/us/p ... wsuit.html

WASHINGTON — A team of prominent constitutional scholars, Supreme Court litigators and former White House ethics lawyers intends to file a lawsuit Monday morning alleging that President Trump is violating the Constitution by allowing his hotels and other business operations to accept payments from foreign governments.


Consitutional Scholars, bullshit meter redlining!

What's the deal? Simple. His hotels have foreign guests who travel on govt expense accounts. I heard about this last week and the Trump solution is to donate all profit to the treasury. So anything over the cost of the room goes to the government.

Same article:

The president’s son Eric Trump, who is an executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said the company had taken more steps than required by law to avoid legal exposure, such as agreeing to donate any profits collected at Trump-owned hotels that come from foreign government guests to the United States Treasury.

“This is purely harassment for political gain, and, frankly, I find it very, very sad,” he said in an interview on Sunday.

The president’s lawyers have argued that the constitutional provision does not apply to fair-market payments, such as a standard hotel room bill, and is intended only to prevent federal officials from accepting a special consideration or gift from a foreign power.

Trump's internet 4chan supporters are vampires of cringe. They will use desperate pathetic flailing like this to feed their power.

In this particular case, the liberal watchdog group’s suit appears likely to face difficult legal hurdles. One would be Dillon’s argument that paying a hotel bill is not a prohibited gift.

Another problem is the question of the watchdog group’s standing to sue. There is a general legal rule that to file suit against someone for wrongdoing, a plaintiff must have suffered some specific harm from that wrongdoing. That’s an issue that has hung over all the discussions of an Emoluments Clause lawsuit: If Trump does violate the Constitution, whom does he hurt?

In this case, the watchdog says its own group was hurt by having to spend so much time monitoring this particular issue.

I looked at this myself but didn't think it was worth bringing up.

Remember Orly Taitz and the other birthers who kept suing Obama?

I do see lots of potential conflicts, particularly with regard to all of the properties he owns in other countries. I say potential because I'm not sure there is an actual serious issue yet. But these are pressure points that foreign governments could use for leverage.

A diplomat staying at one of his hotels, assuming they pay the standard room rate, isn't really a problem as far as I can see.

False dichotomy.

It could be Al Capone's Vault.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Maddow later tweeted that she has Trump's 1040 form from 2005. It is unclear from Maddow's post how the network obtained the documents.

What we've got is from 2005... the President's 1040 form... details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.
