Trump’s latest violation of the emoluments clause

quote [ A mere 72 hours after the Chinese government agreed to put a half-billion dollars into an Indonesian project that will personally enrich Donald Trump, the president ordered a bailout for a Chinese-government-owned cellphone maker. ]

Make America China Great again.

Anybody got one of those stupid hats...feel like a fool yet?

This is a different judge - that judge (Ellis, male) was in Virginia, this judge (Berman Jackson, female) is in DC. And in her ruling she takes a pretty clear shot at Ellis:

even if a judge were to conclude that the regulations could give rise to rights that can be enforced in a courtroom, the Acting Attorney General did not violate those regulations when he exercised his statutory authority to authorize the Special Counsel to investigate not only "links and/or coordination," but also, "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation." The Acting Attorney General had the authority under the applicable statutes and
regulations to define the Special Counsel’s charter broadly."

Emphasis mine. It's not hard to guess which judge she might have in mind, which is good since Ellis is way out of line.
