We have a very complicated set of laws.  Much time has passed since the Constitution was 1st radified and some things have just never been brought into question. 

This President does like to test laws.

 

Legally, nothing has been clarified so there hasn't been a remedy -

Congressional Research Council "IN FOCUS": 02/07/2020 - The Emoluments Clauses of the U.S.Constituti... 

 

The whole Emolulent Clause and the President' ways of doing some things is still up in the air legally.  This gives a pretty good summary of what has happend up to last year.

Washington Post 10/17/2019 - What You Need to Know About the Emoluments Clause 

 

and to date, this year, this is the only thing that has popped out thus far:

NBC NEWS 02/02/2020 - Democrats lack legal standing to sue Trump over alleged emoluments violations,... 

 

So perhaps back to the drawing board.  I just know what I read from various sources.

 


This has never been a problem before Trump. Trump is making tons of money from Govt. business at his properties. The SS pay rack rate. He is trying to sell his DC hotel for a very large amount of money and the head of the General Services Admin told Congress she has not looked at or reviewed the deal which by law she should have. You see Dictator Trump in action and as usual rule of law voided, and replaced by Trump law.

The Emolument Cause, Trump, and the IRS

Message 3 of 3

Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution.

 

“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State. “

 

Per the above Constitutional clause, from the day Trump took office he was barred from receiving any item of value from any foreign state.

 

He was not barred from owning assets in foreign states that he owned before taking office. He was simply barred from receiving anything of value form them while in office.

 

Each year, by law, the IRS audits the President's federal tax return.

 

Per the above Constitutional clause, Trump's federal tax return for each of the last 2 years should have reported foreign state asset net-income and net-asset-growth of $0.00 or -$.

 

It is the IRS's job to seize any +$ in either net-income or net-asset-growth to insure the Emolument law is complied with. That begs the question.

 

Why isn't the IRS doing those seizures? They know the law. Without them Trump's tax returns are fraudulent.

 

Note: That Emolument clause applies to all federal employees. Not just Trump. If he or the rest of our federal employees don't like it, don't take the job or quit.
