It's over, Trumptards.

He hasn't been charged with breaking any laws, let alone laws serious enough to justify impeachment proceedings

Is violating the Emoluments Clause good enough? Because not only did Trump try to get out of this case on a bullshit interpretation of the Emoluments Clause, it's this court's opinion that he broke it under his own criteria.

All this said, as the Court had occasion to point out in its earlier opinion, even
accepting the President’s proposed definition of “emolument,” Plaintiffs have still
plausibly stated a claim in this case. Emoluments Opinion at 19. For instance, insofar as
foreign governments have expressly stated in the media that they are patronizing the
President’s hotel precisely because he is the President, and insofar as foreign
governments such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have demonstrably done so, their
payments could still constitute an “emolument” foursquare within the President’s
definition of the word, especially if, what appears likely, the payments to his hotel are
being made with an expectation of favorable treatment by the President in matters of
foreign policy. As a result, even if the appellate court were to disagree with this Court’s
definition of “emolument” and embrace the President’s, Plaintiffs’ claims in this case
would still remain viable under the definition of “emolument” the President himself
appears to embrace.

Makes you wonder how deeply he's pondered anything if this is his best legal defense.
