President Trump Scores Another Huge Victory Over Democrats in Lawsuit


Democrats Took the President to Court accusing him of violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution and for the second time in three weeks, it has been refuted by first the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and now by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan.

Democrats have used the clause to try to obtain the president’s financial records. The 4th Circuit threw the case out and Judge Sullivan has temporarily blocked the subpoenas from the Democrats pending his decision on whether or not the Democrats need those records in order to argue their emoluments accusations.

The answer, of course, is no.

Judge Emmet Sullivan made the decision just hours after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals said it wanted to hear the case, CNN reported, which reported the ruling as a “win” for the president.

More from CNN:

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said Friday it should hear the case, about the emoluments clause of the Constitution, before the Democrats collect evidence. But the court isn’t ready to hear the case just yet. The panel of three judges directed the Justice Department and the lower court on Friday to take more legal steps, because of legal technicalities, before it will hear the case.

Sullivan should now consider whether the collection of evidence is even needed for the Democrats’ lawsuit, the appeals court order said.

In a lawsuit filed July 8, Democrats sent Trump 37 subpoenas seeking financial information related to a plethora of Trump properties, including Trump Tower and Mar-a-Lago.

The subpoenas were due on July 29 before Sullivan’s ruling.

Sullivan’s ruling came a little more than one week after Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals made a similar ruling, blocking a lawsuit from D.C. and Maryland attorneys general that accused the president of violating the Emoluments Clause.
