Thursday's HOT MIC
While there was something for Trump-hating liberals to celebrate today, not all is good news for them:
A federal court today dismissed a lawsuit brought against Donald Trump which accused the president of violating the constitutional prohibition on certain foreign emoluments.
That case, CREW v. Trump, was brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (“CREW”), a non-profit and non-partisan government corruption watchdog.
In his opinion, Judge George B. Daniels with the Second District Court for the Southern District of New York dismissed the lawsuit largely on grounds of standing. He then opined on several other issues brought to the court’s attention and determined that the issue was not ripe and implicated the “political question” doctrine as well.
I'm sure that The New York Times and WaPo will be getting right on in-depth analysis of this. Also, I am fairly certain that even a minimum amount of digging would find that CREW is anything but "non-partisan".
