Trump’s ’emoluments’ defense argues he can violate the Constitution with impunity. That can’t be right article from The Los Angeles Times. –
http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-chemerinsky-emoluments-law-suits-20170626-story.html

Ah the hazards of trying to be a dictator in a democracy:

“When the president of the United States violates the Constitution there must be a way for a federal court to hear the case and provide a remedy. Three different lawsuits have been filed against President Trump claiming that he is violating the emoluments clauses of the Constitution by receiving unlawful payments or other benefits from foreign governments and from the United States.

Trump’s position is that the federal courts can hear none of these suits because no one has “standing” to sue him for these constitutional violations. But that can’t be right: It cannot be that the president can violate the Constitution with impunity and no court has the authority to hold him accountable.

Article I, Section IX of the Constitution prevents any person holding a federal office from receiving a “present” or “emolument … of any kind whatever” from a foreign state. This was meant to limit foreign influence in the U.S. by broadly forbidding elected or appointed officials from being obligated to another government.

Trump, because he hasn’t removed himself from his business empire, is constantly on the receiving end of benefits from foreign states. Among the most notable examples: Trump has more than 100 registered or provisionally approved trademarks in China, including six that were requested a year ago and gained preliminary approval last week, and his hotels and restaurants are being booked by foreign representatives whose governments foot the bill…”

Trump is terrified of the investigation into his relationship with Russia — and he should be article from Business Insider. –
http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-russia-investigation-scared-2017-6

Trump’s shady business dealings with Russia may hurt him more than help him:

“Donald Trump has been having a meltdown about former FBI Director Robert Mueller pretty much ever since the special counsel was appointed on May 17.

On Twitter he has been fulminating that he is a victim of “the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history — led by some very bad and conflicted people!”

Behind the scenes, the Associated Press reports, he is “yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit — and potentially end — his presidency.”

So irate has Trump become that he reportedly gave serious thought to firing Mueller when his investigation has hardly begun — and may still do so despite all of the advice he is receiving to the contrary…”

Trump’s Limited Travel Ban Victory article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/the-trump-administrations-limited-victory/531708/

The court granted review and delayed actual consideration of the case until October:

“The Trump administration finally got some good news from a federal court Monday. In the twin cases challenging the president’s executive order barring entry into the U.S. by nationals of six majority Muslim countries, the Supreme Court handed the government a genuine but very partial victory, with a hint of more to come.

But the victory was limited in a way that anyone who has ever been 12 years old will understand. The court didn’t say the government could never have a pony. But it didn’t say the government could have a pony either. Instead, it said, “If you still want a pony next October, we’ll see.”

The ambiguity arises because, as Georgetown Law professor Martin Lederman pointed out within minutes of the decision, the court merely granted review, and delayed actual consideration of the case until the opening of next October’s term—by which time the specific issue will most likely be moot. At the same time, the interim order preserved the important victories won by many of those actually harmed by the travel ban—family members of American cit the interim order preserved the important victories won by many of those actually harmed by the travel ban—family members of American citizens or residents, foreign students at American universities, and potential foreign employees of American corporations, citizens or residents, foreign students at American universities, and potential foreign employees of American corporations.

The administration had been losing badly at every turn in the lower courts—before district courts in Maryland and Hawaii and appeals courts in the Fourth and Ninth Circuits. The Fourth Circuit contemptuously rejected the administration’s claims of good faith and the Ninth argued that the order exceeded the president’s statutory authority. Both opinions were, to say the least, acerbic…”

America’s Mayor article from Politico. –
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/06/26/trump-president-style-mayor-215294

Why you can’t run the White House like it’s city hall:

“Gathering a flock of House Republicans in the Rose Garden on May 4 to salute them for voting to repeal Obamacare, President Donald Trump took a moment to shift from the topic to his favorite subject: President Donald Trump.

“How am I doing?” Trump asked with a smile, throwing his open hands wide.

New Yorkers of a certain age would have immediately recognized the question: Trump was lifting the signature phrase of three-term New York Mayor Ed Koch. Walking the city’s streets and prowling its subways from 1978 through 1989, Koch dispensed the “How’m I doin’?” line on his constituents like a blessing. In the circus of New York politics, Koch was ringleader, commanding the spotlight and cracking the whip. But it wasn’t all showmanship. The questions he flung at New Yorkers were sincere—at least early on, he really wanted to know what people thought. He expected both bouquets and brickbats in return, and the feedback mattered to him.

That is not what Trump was doing. From Trump’s lips, the line pealed like a juvenile request for affirmation. He was looking for love, not feedback. Another paradox about Trump’s quote was that he hated Koch. As mayor, Koch resisted Trump’s demands for Manhattan tax abatements and tabled his other requests for New York government favors. And Koch hated him back. A “moron,” Trump once called Koch. “Greedy, greedy, greedy,” Koch called Trump in return…”

Donald Trump is reckless on Syria. It’s his most dangerous foreign policy folly. article from USA Today. –
https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2017/06/26/donald-trump-reckless-syria-folly-james-bovard-column/426924001/

Our Loser-in-Chief is committing blatant war crimes in Syria – so for with total impunity – and his dangerous foreign policy follies will cause major blow back if he’s not held accountable and stopped:

“Trump said Obama’s ‘horrendous leadership’ on Syria could start World War III. He’s made things even worse.

Last year on the campaign trail, crowds roared when Donald Trump denounced his opponent as “trigger-happy” Hillary. But President Trump is rapidly incarnating the vice he condemned. Nowhere is this more evident than in Syria, where Trump’s recklessness risks dragging America into a major war.

U.S. policy toward Syria has been a tangle of absurdities since 2012. President Obama promised 16 times that he would never put U.S. “boots on the ground” in the four-sided Syrian civil war. He quietly abandoned that pledge and, starting in 2014, launched more more than 5,000 airstrikes that dropped more than 15,000 bombs on terrorist groups in Syria.

Four years ago, Trump warned in a tweet: “If the U.S. attacks Syria and hits the wrong targets, killing civilians, there will be worldwide hell to pay.” But the Trump administration has sharply increased U.S. bombing while curtailing restrictions that sought to protect innocents. A British-based human rights monitoring group estimated Friday that U.S.-led coalition strikes had killed almost 500 civilians in the past month — more than any month since U.S. bombing began. A United Nations commission of inquiry concluded that coalition airstrikes have caused a “staggering loss of civilian life.”…”
