Dem Emolument Case Thrown Out By Appeal Court,

Trump has just racked up another win as a federal appeals court unanimously threw out the emoluments case brought by House Democrats:

Dem Emolument Case Thrown Out By Appeal Court

POLITICO – A federal appeals court has rejected a lawsuit from Congressional Democrats who accused President Donald Trump of violating the Constitution by receiving profits from foreign governments’ spending at his luxury Washington hotel and other businesses.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision did not address the legality of Trump’s business dealings, but held that the more than 200 Democratic senators and House members who banded together in 2017 to bring the suit against the president lacked legal standing to do so.

The unanimous ruling from an ideologically diverse three-judge panel suggested that if the House or Senate had formally authorized the suit, it would have been allowed to proceed, but the lawmakers acting as plaintiffs in the case did not have standing to pursue it on their own.

“Only an institution can assert an institutional injury,” the court wrote in its brief, 12-page decision.

Politico tells us who the judges were below:

Two Republican appointees and one Democratic appointee joined in Friday’s D.C. Circuit ruling tossing out the Congressional Democrats’ suit. The jurists assigned to the case were George H.W. Bush appointee Karen Henderson, George W. Bush appointee Thomas Griffith and Bill Clinton appointee David Tatel.

That’s gotta sting to have a case thrown out by two Bush appointees (father and son) and a Clinton appointee. There are other emoluments cases out there though that weren’t brought by House Democrats.
