Today, the Emoluments law suit filed by CREW (Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics) in DC was revived by Fed Appeals Ct in Manhattan, this is a big loss for the Trump admin.-potentially giving us another window into his finances. #FridayFeeling…
2-"The Friday ruling revives the case, allowing it — and potential discovery associated with how Trump has profited from foreign government business — to move forward absent any further appeal. In the 2-1 ruling, the appeals court held back from ruling on the merits of the case
3-"The majority did, however, find it “plausible” that “in some significant number of instances, government officials will choose Trump hotels and restaurants in the hope that spending their dollars at Trump establishments will influence the President in their favor in
4-"governmental decisions.” Calling the allegation an “unlawful market skew,” judges from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that not only do the businesses have standing to sue Trump over his alleged unfair competitive advantage, but that the Emoluments Clause itself
5-"gives them the basis to claim injury. “This unlawful market skew directly affects Plaintiffs’ revenue and profits,” the opinion reads. “Every dollar of government patronage drawn to Trump establishments by the hope of currying favor with the President is a lost dollar of
6-"revenue that might otherwise have gone to Plaintiffs.” ..goes to the reality, ..that Trump has something to offer that his competitors do not: “the opportunity to obtain favorable treatment from the President and the Executive branch in governmental decisions.”
