BREAKING: Court Dismisses Emoluments Lawsuit Filed by Over 200 Democrat Lawmakers Against Trump

It has been a victorious week for President Trump.
The Democrat Iowa caucuses Monday night were a complete debacle and the train wreck lasted all week.
Trump delivered a historic State of the Union Address on Tuesday night.
Then the senate acquitted him of all charges in the sham impeachment trial on Wednesday.
Now this…
A court dismissed the emoluments lawsuit filed by 215 Democrats in Congress against President Trump, ruling that the appellees lacked standing.
The emoluments clause is a provision that bars US presidents from accepting gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress first.

The 2017 emoluments lawsuit against Trump was led by Stolen Valor fraud Senator Richard “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal (D-CT).
Da Nang Dick and the 200+ Dems took another loss today!
Law & Crime reported:

The U.S Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Friday dismissed an emoluments-related lawsuit filed by members of Congress against President Donald Trump, ruling that the appellees lacked standing.
The three-part Article III standing test requires that the plaintiff demonstrate an “injury in fact” if a lawsuit is to move forward:
1) The plaintiff must have suffered an “injury in fact,” meaning that the injury is of a legally protected interest which is (a) concrete and particularized and (b) actual or imminent
2) There must be a causal connection between the injury and the conduct brought before the court
3) It must be likely, rather than speculative, that a favorable decision by the court will redress the injury
The court said that the 215 Members of the Congress failed that test.
“Here, regardless of rigor, our conclusion is straightforward because the Members—29 Senators and 186 Members of the House of Representatives—do not constitute a majority of either body and are, therefore, powerless to approve or deny the President’s acceptance of foreign emoluments,” the Court said.
According to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, the Democrats are defeated after taking one loss after another this week.
Rep. Dingell on Dems exasperated by impeachment verdict, Iowa debacle, State of the Union: “Everybody wants to get out of town today. This has been one of the worst weeks I can remember.”
And President Trump celebrated!
