MOVING TO PLAN D
“Democrats trot out Plan C in their never-ending Trump impeachment crusade,” notes a new Investor’s Business Daily editorial, referring to three separate lawsuits filed by legal scholars, the District of Columbia and state of Maryland plus 200 Democratic lawmakers. The lawsuits claim that President Trump violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which bars elected officials from accepting compensation from foreign powers without the permission of Congress.
“This is simply another despicable attempt by Democrats to hobble a president they don’t like and overturn an election they regret, using any means necessary to do so. If Plan A (claiming Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians) won’t fly, and if Plan B (saying he tried to obstruct justice) doesn’t end up having legs — then it’s time to move to Plan C, filing laughable emoluments lawsuits,” the editorial says.
“It makes one wonder how far down the alphabet we’ll have to go before we get to a Democratic plan that involves engaging in a civil debate with Trump over public policies to meet the urgent needs of the country. Do they even have such a plan?”
