The Ethics Suit Against Trump – A Helpful Reader Pointed Me to More Info:

A helpful reader pointed me to recent debates between Professor Teachout and Professor Seth Tillman on whether the Foreign Emoluments Clause even applies to Presidents, a point I briefly said was an “open question” in my analysis of the ethics suit against Trump 10 days ago. Very interesting stuff:
