The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit filed by DC and Maryland claiming President Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution because foreign government officials stay at Trump’s DC hotel.

The attorneys general of DC and Maryland brought the lawsuit against Trump two years ago and the ruling from a unanimous three-judge panel asserting they lack the legal standing to bring the lawsuit is a big win for Trump.

The emoluments clause is a provision that bars US presidents from accepting gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress first.

This is a huge win for Trump and Judge Paul Niemeyer, a George H.W. Bush appointee said they did not have the standing to sue President Trump.
