President Trump is riding high after the release of Robert Mueller’s report.
But Democrats are hoping to knock him down a notch.
And they just found a way after a federal judge handed the president insane news that could destroy him.
Before being president, Trump made a name for himself for running a massive real estate empire.
There is perhaps nobody known more for their accomplishments in the field than Trump, with his name atop towers in dozens of major cities.
One of those cities with his name in prominence is Washington, D.C., with his magnificent Trump International Hotel.
It is the only five star hotel in the city, being just blocks away from the White House.
The hotel is the center of controversy for the left who believe that Trump having a hotel in the same city of the government he is the top executive of is wrong.
But the hotel has been in the works long before his presidential campaign and is in no way controlled by him.
Despite this, Democrats are looking to prove that the hotel is corruption.
Democrat lawmakers are pushing a lawsuit against the President, alleging he is violating anti-corruption provisions in the U.S. Constitution.
At the center of the lawsuit are allegations that foreign government spending tens of thousands of dollars for stays at the hotel constitutes corruption.
The Democrat lawmakers note that the Saudi and Kuwaiti government spends a lot of money at the hotel.
But that is simply because the Trump Hotel, housed in a historic old post office, truly is the best hotel in the city, being the only one able to obtain five stars.
The plaintiffs also note that the Chinese government has approved 40 trademarks for Trump businesses, something that isn’t surprising, and that Trump businesses would pursue whether President Trump was in office or not.
The Trump organization is working to dismiss the lawsuit, as it is simply an attempt to attack them for having the President’s name.
But a federal judge in Washington, D.C. put a stop to the attempt to dismiss the suit, allowing it to proceed in a ruling on Tuesday.
“This decision is a tremendous victory and vindication of a common sense reading of the Constitution,” said Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who is the lead plaintiff. “In an extraordinarily well-reasoned opinion, the court soundly rejected the president’s absurd argument that he is above the law.”
Now Democrats will be pushing to pursue what they really want out of the lawsuit, which is discovery.
They are going to try to use the courts to compel the Trump Organization to turn over documents relating to the finances of their properties and businesses.
The Justice Department is working to stop this, as it is simply an attack on the company itself and the President.
Do you think Democrats should be allowed to attack Trump’s former business?
