CHALLENGING - The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit today is set to hear a major challenge arguing that President Trump’s business activities violate the Constitution’s foreign and domestic emoluments clauses, which provide a check against conflicts of interest involving the president. Loren AliKhan, the D.C. solicitor general who argues the president has violated the Constitution, will face off against the DOJ’s Hashim Mooppan, a leading appellate lawyer who joined the Trump administration from Jones Day.
