Congressional Democrats’ emoluments lawsuit targeting President Trump’s private business can proceed, judge says

Hey, if you’re gonna work for us as our president, you can’t receive a bunch of money and gifts from foreign governments.

“In a 48-page opinion, the judge refused the request of the president’s legal team to dismiss the case and rejected Trump’s narrow definition of emoluments, finding it “unpersuasive and inconsistent.”

And in true Trump fashion, he’ll now try to use sleazy lawyers and tie this thing up for as long as possible. They’re even telegraphing now too…

“The clause, they argue, should not be considered a blanket bar on private business transactions with foreign governments.”

The dude is a con man. I hope everyone has figured that out by now.
