Court says Maryland and DC do not have the right to sue Trump over Emoluments clause
In a legal victory for the White House, a federal appeals court on Tuesday dismissed a challenge from the state of Maryland and Washington, D.C. over the issue of emoluments, ruling that those two governments had no right to bring such a lawsuit against the President of the United States.The same people who think renting a hotel room is unethical are OK with Biden's corruption on a grand scale.
"The District and Maryland's interest in enforcing the Emoluments Clause is so attenuated and abstract that their prosecution of this case readily provokes the question of whether this action against the President is an appropriate use of the courts," wrote a three judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In a 36 page opinion, the judges said the case simply boiled down to the question of whether Maryland and D.C. had the legal right to bring such a case.
"The District and Maryland do not have Article III standing to pursue their claims against the President," the judges ruled.
