Ginsburg Opinion SINKS Pelosi and the Democrats Emoluments Case Against Trump

    2020-02-11 Source: TTN by: TTN Staff

Democrats suffered a defeat last week when their emoluments case was thrown out of court. Surprisingly it was a Ginsburg opinion that was relied upon to do so.

According to The Daily Caller:

    President Donald Trump had an unlikely ally in his fight against an anti-corruption lawsuit from congressional Democrats — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is leading a coalition of 186 House members and 29 senators alleging the president has unlawfully profited from foreign patronage at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in violation of an ethics provision in the Constitution called the foreign emoluments clause. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit dismissed the lawsuit on Feb. 7 on technical grounds, relying in part on a 2019 Ginsburg opinion.
