It was rejected due to a technicality.

Namely, that DC and Maryland lacked legal standing to pursue the lawsuit.

Both plaintiffs pledged  to continue pursuing the matter, although I don't yet see that they are appealing this ruling.

Tellingly, however, Trump's defense was helped in a backhanded way when one of the three conservative judges in the matter stated that it was likely that attaching Trump's name to the hotel probably hurt its business more than it helped it.

Duh.

Also, there are at least two other emoluments clause violation cases against the President which are still active, and at least one of them has already determined the plaintiffs do indeed have legal standing to pursue.

Stay tuned.

It all has the smell of pure Presidential harassment.  I believe the American people are getting pretty fed up with the Democrat's shananigans and will reward President Trump with a 2nd term and the GOP with control of both the House and the Senate, in 2020. 

You guys liked piling on Kavanaugh too.

Stay tuned!

One of the judges said that even if Trump had personally divested himself from the Trump Organization, it would still bear his name and enrich his family.  This makes no sense in terms of tossing this lawsuit, though.  If presidents can sidestep ethics constraints like this by just passing ownership temporarily to family members, then the ethics constraints are meaningless.

It's similar to the issues around Trump overruling the security clearance process for 2 dozen of his appointees.  If the executive is going to overrule the process so often, then the process is meaningless.

Yeah, I guess Presidents ought to have to change their name and disown their families and just like the Pope, give away all their earthly possessions to charity.

Please explain how it is "pure presidential harassment" to investigate whether Trump is violating the emoluments clause of the US Constitution?

Unlike all previous presidents, he has failed to divest himself of clear conflicts of interest during his presidency.

Jimmy Carter put his peanut farm into a blind trust when he became president.

Why didn't Trump do the same with his business?

He didn’t do anything wrong Useless. Give up. He is the best president we have had for many years. All is going well for everyone.
Good night. The work out this morning seemed harder than usual. I guess I need some sleep. Right after I walk the dogs again.
