Democrats Go 0-2 This Week

( – The dead-on-arrival Articles of Impeachment were formally laid to rest by the Senate this week. Hard on the heels of that defeat, the Left was dealt another setback in their varied attempts to remove, or at least discredit, the president.

Some 200 Democrats of the sitting Congress sued President Trump over an obscure part of the Constitution of the United States, the emoluments clause. The Founding Fathers added this in to prevent a president from being compromised by accepting bribes or titles of royalty from foreign powers.

A panel of judges on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in a unanimous decision ruled that they did not have legal standing to bring this suit. They did not rule on the merits of the case — possibly because they didn’t have to, possibly because nobody knows exactly what it means.

It should be noted that cases by other plaintiffs are currently wending their way through federal courts in the Second and Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. While the issue isn’t settled, and likely won’t be before the Supreme Court gets a look at it, President Trump can savor his second victory of the week.
