The Supreme Court returns cases related to Donald Trump using his presidency to bankroll his private businesses and orders the lower courts to dismiss them.

The cases questioned the legality of Trump using his position as president to direct government activities and taxpayer dollars to his own businesses. The practice violates the anti-corruption emoluments clause of the Constitution.

It’s no mystery that Trump has directed government spending to his own businesses. Government officials made over 1,000 visits to the Trump International Hotel in D.C. alone. That doesn’t include all of his other businesses or government events he hosted at his own properties.

The SCOTUS response claims these violations no longer matter since he is out of office; Trump escapes accountability once again.

“History will note that at every step of this case, President Trump and political appointees at the Department of Justice went to extreme lengths to prevent us from uncovering the true extent of his corruption,” D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine and Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, both Democrats, said in a joint statement.
