President Donald Trump attended the G7 summit recently and suggested that next year the meeting could be held at one of his properties in Florida. That news, in addition to a recent ruling by the Second Circuit allowing a case from the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to move forward against the President.
These reports led me to wondering. What exactly is the Emoluments Clause?
A recent report titled, “The Emoluments Clauses of the U.S. Constitution,” was prepared by the Congressional Research Service and posted on August 23, 2019, provides background on the emoluments clauses and summaries of court cases in various stages of litigation against the president.
