It’s already been a helluva week for Trump. And it just got better again. Another or the tactics to take Trump down just got slapped down.
They’re just grasping at straws now… and they keep coming up empty.
This time, it’s with the court decision against those who were trying to leverage the Emoluments Clause against President Trump.
A federal appeals court on Friday dismissed Democratic lawmakers’ lawsuit against President Donald Trump alleging he has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution on technical grounds.
In the ruling, the three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia found the members of Congress did not have legal standing to bring suit against the president for violating the clause, which bars federal officials from collecting payments from foreign governments without approval of Congress.
In their unsigned ruling, the judges cited Supreme Court precedent, noting the 215 lawmakers on the suit are not the majority of Congress, and that they might have had standing if they had filed suit as a majority. “[O]nly an institution can assert an institutional injury,” the ruling says.
“Here, regardless of rigor, our conclusion is straightforward because the members — 29 senators and 186 members of the House of Representatives — do not constitute a majority of either body and are, therefore, powerless to approve or deny the president’s acceptance of foreign emoluments,” the decision says.
So, the Democrats tried to take Trump down again.
And again, the provisions of the Constitution got in their way.
They never learned that lesson from ‘Batman Begins’: They’ve sacrificed sure footing for a killing stroke.
Then again, we shouldn’t expect rational behavior from a group so deeply afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
After all… Nadler is already looking to keep the Impeachment fight going.
It’s as though they’re trying to prove to even the harshest skeptics that yes, indeed, the Democrats are interested in destroying Trump for personal and political reasons, rather than reasons of justice.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
