Supreme Court ends ALL emoluments lawsuits against Trump

The Supreme Court has finally put an end to all emoluments lawsuits against Trump:

AP – The Supreme Court on Monday brought an end to lawsuits over whether Donald Trump illegally profited off his presidency.

The justices threw out Trump’s challenge to lower court rulings that had allowed lawsuits to go forward alleging that he violated the Constitution’s emoluments clause by accepting payments from foreign and domestic officials who stay at the Trump International Hotel and patronize other businesses owned by the former president and his family.

The high court also ordered the lower court rulings thrown out as well and directed appeals courts in New York and Richmond, Virginia, to dismiss the suits as moot now that Trump is no longer in office.

The outcome leaves no judicial opinions on the books in an area of the law that has been rarely explored in U.S. history.

They didn’t just dismiss the one before the, but ordered all the lower courts to dismiss theirs as well.

These cases should have been dismissed a long time ago, but I’m at least happy to see the Supreme Court isn’t allowing them to be pursued now that Trump is out of office.

There are other cases against Trump, however, that remain in the court system:

Other cases involving Trump remain before the Supreme Court, or in lower courts.

Trump is trying to block the Manhattan district attorney ’s enforcement of a subpoena for his tax returns. Lower courts are weighing congressional subpoenas for Trump’s financial records. And the justices also have before them Trump’s appeal of a decision forbidding him from blocking critics on his Twitter account. Like the emoluments cases, Trump’s appeal would seem to be moot now that he is out of office and also had his Twitter account suspended.

Hopefully they’ll get dismissed too. But even though Trump is out of office, his headaches aren’t over, if Democrats have anything to say about it. They would love nothing more than to continue their plight to destroy Trump, to both ensure he never runs again and to try and make him sorry he ever ran in the first place. Just like with the phony impeachment.
