The ‘Emoluments’ Suit v. Trump is just another Political Hit Job
At NYPOST by F.H. Buckley,Ron Rotunda
There used to be a respected government-ethics watchdog group called the Citizens for Responsibility Ethics in Washington. It published stories about congressmen who hired their girlfriends or were wined and dined by lobbyists, and it went after people in both political parties. But last summer, CREW was taken over by left-wing hit man David Brock, and now it’s simply another partisan Washington group.
That’s how one should understand CREW’s new lawsuit claiming that President Trump is violating the Emoluments Clauses of the US Constitution. The litigation is not going to go anywhere, but it’s going to be employed as grounds for the impeachment proceedings Democrats plan to bring against the president.
