TRUMP Wins Again, Democrats Emoluments Case Unanimously Thrown Out

A three judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court ruled that the Democrats did not have enough standing to file suit against Trump for violating emoluments clause

“The Members can, and likely will, continue to use their weighty voices to make their case to the American people, their colleagues in the Congress and the President himself, all of whom are free to engage that argument as they see fit. but we will not—indeed we cannot—participate in this debate. The Constitution permits the Judiciary to speak only in the context of an Article III case or controversy and this lawsuit presents neither.”
– D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals

The emoluments clause prohibits government officials from receiving payments from foreign governments without approval of congress.

“No person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”
– Emoluments Clause

President Trump has given control of the Trump Organization over to his two children, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. However he still possesses ownership over the group which includes 500 business entities
