I didn't even notice the new development that happened yesterday. A federal appeals court on Friday re-instated an ethics lawsuit against the President. The argument is that his business interests are conflicts of interest and depending on the details here may violate the US Constitution.

The lawsuit, the plaintiffs of which include a hotel operator and a group of restaurants, claimed Trump’s “vast, complicated and secret” business arrangements violate a constitutional provision, the Emoluments Clause, which bars the president from accepting gifts from foreign governments without the permission of Congress.

In its opinion, the appeals court said the plaintiffs’ complaint:

“Alleges that plaintiffs’ establishments are harmed in their competition with Trump establishments because, despite being comparable in other relevant aspects, the President’s establishments offer government patrons something that plaintiffs cannot: the opportunity, by enriching the President, to obtain favorable government treatment from the President and Executive branch.” “It alleges that the marketplace is thus skewed in favor of Trump businesses because of his unlawful receipt of payments from government patrons,” the appeals court opinion continued.

“The complaint, supported by expert declarations, alleges that this unlawful market skew has caused plaintiffs economic harm in the form of lost patronage from government entities, and that such harm will continue in the future. For competitor standing, that is sufficient.”

They probably should not have been so brazen about their aspiration to catch up to Hillary as the masters of pay to play schemes. Hum..Interesting. So these plaintiffs are alleging that they frequently service government officials in their hotel business, but are now experiencing economic hardship because suddenly this type of clientele is seeking the same services with the Trump's hotels. Of course the businesses cannot try to counter and compete because they cannot offer the same benefit of trying to currying favor from the president of the US. Interesting problem....Wonder if you can prove that..
