Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday scored a crucial victory in a Democratic-backed lawsuit that accuses him of violating anti-corruption provisions of the U.S. Constitution with his Washington hotel.

The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a set of decisions instructing a lower court judge to dismiss the lawsuit filed against the Republican president in June 2017 by the Democratic attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

The court said the attorneys general lacked legal standing to bring the case.

A spokesman for D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Today’s pair of decisions by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals is a complete victory,” Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump, said in a statement. “This latest effort at presidential harassment has been dismissed with prejudice.”

Our judical system is completely corrupt. All you have to do is find the right so called "judge" and you can then harass whoever you want. Thank god there is at least an appeal system. but till you get to that point its insane.

And prosecutors are even worse. Its all about career advancement and themselves. The law is rubbish. Anyone with complex dealings can be found guilty by a gottcha law. Its about overzealous prosecutors. Point in hand, the Epstien case. Why wasn't the sicko charged over the last 10 years? What happened now that they woke up? Should I tell you what happened? Jeffery supported trump and his buddy Alex Acosta is a secretary in the WH for trump. So the sick crime doesn't matter but once you work for Trump or support him then it all matters? And oursystem is not rotten to the core?

Epstein is a concern, because as Yidden, we have enough tsouris and the wrath of goyim on our plate, with such deviants such as Anthony Weiner, Harvey Weinstein, Dustin Hoffman, and crooks and liars such as Bernard Madoff, and Michael Cohen. Each one of them is a disgrace and a shanda to the Jewish community.

Oh i agree with you and think you missed my point. yes Epstein is a big concern. But why now? Why wasn't the same concern addressed in 2015? This is not new crimes? I am not happy about Epstien.

But why now?

One word "trump. And thats the shanada. We only go after creeps to get at trump not because of law and order.

Epstein should be a concern because as Yidden we should loath zenus, especially when it involves youngsters being coerced into participating. These sick perverts are a disgrace and a shanda to the human race.

I guess because it's a federal law. They should rewrite the emoluments clause as well as the impeachment standard so people have a better idea of what gets to you in trouble and what doesn't
Hight crimes and misdemeanors conveys no precise meaning
Same with emoluments clause which gives no guidance

Stop lying the local democrat prosocuters in the case wanted to let him off scot free because they new a trial would implicate a lot of powerful people from rapist bill to Prince Andrew and many others and they didn't want that, Acosta came in and got what jail time he could get under those circumstances. It was Trump who banned him from Mar A Lago in '07 it was Trump who helped lawyers in civil cases in '09. It was democrats who ignored this all because prominant democrats are implicated in this until now when they and their propoganda arm, the fake news media can turn it around and use this democrat scandal to attack Trump. When epstein flips we'll see how many democrats are implicated. Rapist bill who flew on epsteins lolita express after ditching his secret service detail some 26 times. Oh and Quack I couldn't care less if I don't use the proper punctuation argue against what I write not the way I write it.

This has nothing to do with Trump, who has washed his hands of Epstein. More evidence, and more individuals have come forward now, than was the case a few years ago. Incidentally, it is my opinion that the current Secretary of Labor is toast. Whenever Trump states that "so and so has my full confidence", such individuals are usually gone, within a short time. We've seen this before with General Mathis, General McMasters, General Kelly, Scaramucci, Amorosa, the staff member who beat two of his ex-wives, etc. The list goes on and on. I predict that Acosta will have his tuchas shown to the door, very shortly.
