Democrats have proven time and time again that they will do anything to stop President Donald Trump from draining the swamp in Washington, D.C.
But the latest political move out of the nation’s capital had even liberal judges telling Democrats, “ENOUGH!”
The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit dismissed a lawsuit from Democrats challenging the legality of payments to Trump-owned hotels by foreigners during his tenure in the White House.
The three-judge panel ruled that Maryland and the District of Columbia – where the case originated from – did not have any legal standing to assert that Trump violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The court held that the Attorneys General of Maryland and Washington, D.C. had no right to sue Trump and tossed the entire case.
Pouring even more salt into the wound, the panel ordered a federal district court judge in Maryland to dismiss the suit against Trump with prejudice.
In other words, the Democrats are now barred from taking the president back to court in the case.
Democrats have been trying to sue the president in court by claiming he violated the emoluments clause because foreign actors and government officials booked rooms at the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C.
As a result, Trump has been forced to go above and beyond to ensure that Democrats see he’s not accepting any gifts from foreigners that could be considered a “bribe.”
The Trump organization gives every dime that foreigners spend in the president’s family’s hotel back to taxpayers.
Earlier this year, the Trump Organization – which works in the same ecosystem as Trump Hotels – revealed that it had donated almost $200,000 to the U.S. Treasury.
The organization did so because the president had promised the American people that he would not keep a penny in profits from foreign governments who stayed at the company’s businesses.
It has been clear to many for quite some time that the lawsuit was absurd and nothing more than a trick play from Democrats to keep their impeachment dreams alive.
But it failed miserably.
