Court reinstates lawsuit over Trumps hotels profits

A good move by the full court, by a 9-6 vote they are allowing this case to move forward, I do believe he has used his position of power to profit himself.

The lead conservative dissenter’s opinion is also nakedly political. This matter should be simple to resolve without courts - show evidence of full divestiture, and tax returns, and there’ll be no problem.

Ah! but thieves and liars do not do it that way, he will drag it out, hoping to find an out, or a sympathetic, or a corrupt judge, anything but do it the honest way, because there is no honesty in him.

How many times in one term does SCOTUS have to take up questions of executive privilege? Elect a clown, we’re all in the circus.

Without a doubt, the best description of this Buffoon and his corrupt administration, a three ring one at that. His little new Mouthpiece fits right in as the new Ringmaster.

Well, he doesn´t want to go to prison. One of the few understandable motives Trump has....

That might resolve quickly, as it is already established that the he can´t even keep a pen as a present... so cash probably is a non starter. But i guess he can buy that from the USA for the appraised value... so a bargain 100 cent on the USD.

The Old Post Office building the hotel is in is owned by the US Government and the sightseeing tower in it is operated by the Park Service, a Trump company only operates the hotel in it by a leasing arrangement. Likely that lease has clauses that only an American citizen controlled company could be the lessee, Trump met the qualification as well as being an operator of hotels elsewhere in the USA. The lease did have a major mistake in it, it should have had a clause that any owner of the lessee company could not be an elected or appointed official of the USA or any State government. Sadly the Congress never really followed up on that with hearings as they should have. Even if had to pay $10's of millions to Trump/his companies to take back the lease and set it up for bids again, it should have happened. I do hope this case continues to a trial, but with the for sure SCOTUS appeal and other delays, it will likely be moot (as hopefully) Trump will no longer President as of Jan. 21, 2021.
