(National Sentinel) Political: If ever there was a need for tort reform that includes a “loser pays” provision, it’s going to be the era of the Trump presidency.
Unsatisfied with the Deep State’s inability to pick off POTUS Donald Trump with bogus “collusion” and “obstruction” narratives, taxpayers in Democrat-run states are funding what can only be viewed as harassment lawsuits in the latest desperate attempt to “get” a duly-elected president whose governance thus far has been nothing short of stupendous for Americans and for our country.
As Reuters reports:
New York’s attorney general on Thursday sued the Donald J. Trump Foundation, U.S. President Donald Trump, and others, and is seeking to dissolve the foundation after what she called its “persistent illegal conduct” over more than a decade.
Barbara Underwood, the attorney general, said the foundation engaged in “extensive unlawful political coordination” with Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, conducted “repeated and willful self-dealing” to benefit his personal and business interests, and violated “basic legal obligations” for nonprofits.
Right. Isn’t it odd that only now the state of New York has ‘found’ this evidence?
There’s more. As The Associated Press reported, two more state attorneys general are hoping to rewrite parts of the Constitution in their effort to “get” Trump:
Attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia on Friday expanded their lawsuit accusing President Donald Trump of accepting gifts from foreign and state governments, suing him not only as president but in his personal capacity as a businessman.
Legal experts say the move takes the “emoluments” clause of the Constitution into uncharted legal waters, since it has been interpreted as only applying to presidents in their official capacity.
“The conventional understanding is that once the president is sworn in … everything he does is official, so he doesn’t have a personal capacity any longer. That’s kind of the assumption, but that could be wrong,” said Mark Brown, a constitutional law expert at Capital University Law School in Columbus, Ohio.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Maryland, is one of several recent cases challenging Trump’s ties to his business ventures and his refusal to divest from them. The suits allege that foreign governments’ use of Trump’s hotels and other properties violates the Constitution’s emoluments clause, which bans the president’s acceptance of foreign gifts and money without Congress’ permission. The clause has never been fully tested in federal court and Trump’s Justice Department attorneys have argued that hotel room stays do not represent “foreign gifts.”
Frankly, taxpayers who live in these jurisdictions ought to be outraged that their governments are spending money on these fruitless endeavors. But then again, voters put these Left-wing fanatics in office so there’s little chance there’ll be much outrage.
The perpetually triggered anti-Trump sycophants need to get used to these two realities: POTUS Trump isn’t going anywhere, and Americans’ lives will continue to improve under his leadership.
Even if they’re ungrateful politicos who remain perpetually triggered.
