While most of the mainstream media was rightly focussed on the dramatic events surrouding Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, another bombshell news broke yesterday but got little or no attention.
Turns out a federal judge has allowed the Emoluments Clause lawsuit brought by Congressional Democrats against Trump to proceed.
A federal court has just ruled that the third of our lawsuits challenging Trump’s ongoing violations of the Constitution’s main anti-corruption clauses, the Emoluments Clauses, should go forward. Less dramatic than the rest of today’s news, but really bighttps://t.co/UfEp22OV7x

This is super big news because it means among other things, that Congressional Dems may be able to get Trump’s tax returns through the discovery process.
Yours Truly predicted months ago that the Emoluments Clause lawsuit brought by Congressional Dems was by far the strongest because they had standing to sue.

Turns out Yours Truly was right on the money. Strangly, senate Dems never asked Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings about the Emoluments Clause. Is there a way to find out now or is it too late?
Bottom line folks turns out 9/28/2018 was a great day for Dems in particular and Democracy-loving Americans in general. Our loud voices are beginning to get heard in spite of the GOP’s total stranglehold on political power(elevator women on Sen Flake). Let us hope the FBI investigation exposes Kavanaugh’s true character–a serial liar–and sinks his Supreme Court prospects. Let’s hope also that Congressional Dems finally get their hands on the elusive Trump’s tax returns using the Emoluments Clause lawsuit.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
