APPEALING – In a win for the Trump DOJ, the federal appeals court in D.C. will now decide whether a lawsuit filed by Democrats in Congress alleging President Trump is violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause can advance. As Jacqueline Thomsen reports, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has tossed out his own rulings that let the suit proceed following the DOJ’s request to allow the circuit court to review those previous rulings. More than 200 Democrats filed the lawsuit in 2017, and Sullivan previously found that the lawmakers had standing to sue and ordered the case to advance to discovery. Democrats issued subpoenas to several of Trump’s private businesses, including the Trump Organization, as a result of Sullivan’s rulings.
