Don't Put Trump Above the Law, Emoluments Challengers Urge

To earn the right to take the president to court, [plaintiff's attorney Deepak] Gupta will have to prove not only that the president's business dealings are illegal, but that his clients have been harmed by them.

The event which has not occurred.
Gupta told the court that he has numerical proof [!] of Trump's competition with another of his clients, New York hotel mogul Eric Goode. Ranked 35th in the area, Trump SoHo's price differs by only $1 from Goode's Bowery Hotel, which outranks its nearby competitor by two points but has an important drawback.

"What our clients can't offer is the ability to curry favor with the president of the United States," Gupta said.


"emoluments magnet"
Since the emoluments clause proscribes certain foreign business transactions only "without the consent of Congress," the Republican-led Legislature presents another variable in the case.

"Your clients would not have a cause of action no matter how severe [their complaints] if [Congress] decided to consent," said [U.S. District Judge George] Daniels.
