Another good news for Donald Trump. SCOTUS Tosses Trump Case!
Several sources claim that the Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit filed by a number of Democratic lawmakers seeking access to the D.C. Trump Hotel’s records.
The hotel, which was formerly owned by the 45th President of the United States, has long been a target for congressional Democrats.
Although litigation against President Trump, his corporate entities, and organizations in New York have also been delayed or abandoned, this represents yet another little legal triumph for him. …
Now let’s hope that the sham federal investigation against President Trump will also be thrown out soon!
Donald Trump is relieved that the Supreme Court has rejected a case that would have let House Democrats get information on his hotel in Washington, D.C. Carnahan v. Doe is the case.
Maloney, which claimed that the Trump Organization had broken the law by utilizing the property to benefit itself while Trump was president, was filed in 2019 by a group of House Democrats.
Trump and his friends have won thanks to the Supreme Court’s decision to throw out the case. It implies that the Democrats won’t be able to get the records they requested, which they could have used to check on Trump’s involvement in any wrongdoing.
The Democratic Party’s long-running effort to look into Trump’s economic dealings has been hampered by the decision. The Supreme Court’s ruling makes it more challenging for the Democrats to gather the evidence they require to refute Trump.
The Democrats, however, are not giving up. They have declared that they will keep looking into Trump’s financial transactions and that they might later bring another case.
Although Trump’s triumph in the Supreme Court ruling is momentous, the tale is far from over. Democrats continue to look into Trump.
Multiple outlets and influencers reported:
The Supreme Court dropped a case concerning a lower court opinion that allowed for a handful of members of Congress to sue a government agency for records related to the Washington, DC, hotel once owned by former President Donald Trump. https://t.co/BAlgdWU5JQ

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, two of the lawsuits against Trump have quietly been dropped: Bragg’s case in NY and the Trump DC hotel case (Supreme Court). Both were dropped, basically, because they have no standing/nothing to stand on. Same old same old.

The court’s move is likely because the lawmakers were no longer pursuing the case.
It means the justices will save for another day the issue of whether it is ever appropriate for a minority of members of congressional committee to be able to demand executive branch documents.
The US Supreme Court is seen in Washington, DC, on June 16, 2023. The court is expected to issue rulings on some of the cases that were argued this term.
“But the case was set to weigh how the minority party in Congress can scrutinize a presidential administration using a federal law known as the ‘Seven Member Rule.’”🤔

The Supreme Court will no longer hear a case on whether Democratic lawmakers should have been able to sue to obtain documents related to former President Trump’s then-owned Washington, D.C., hotel after congressional members dismissed the lawsuit. https://t.co/d3r9Gkxclm

The Hill continued:
The Justice Department had asked the justices to declare that the Democrats could not sue in court to enforce the rule, which allows any seven members of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability or any five members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee to ask for information within their purview from executive agencies.
But after Democrats dismissed the case, the Justice Department said the Supreme Court should step away from hearing its appeal.
