Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Violating the law and generally speaking the Supreme Court and then based on that the lower federal courts are pretty hot style to the idea that legislators as individuals have a direct and concrete injury that they should be able to go to the federal courts to resolve you know what the Supreme Court has said in the DC circuit us just decided this case throwing out the suit by the members of Congress yes said that the Supreme Court decisions had clearly for close this case the Supreme Court ruled is because the individual members of Congress don't have standing to sue to complain about law violations by the executive branch sometimes an entire house of the legislature or the legislature as a whole might have standing but here it was just a suit brought by individuals in the opinion the court says are standing in Corey is quote especially rigorous in a case like this where reaching the merits of the dispute would force us to decide whether an action taken by one of the other two branches of the federal government was unconstitutional the Supreme Court has said a number of times then the idea is basically one of what we call separation of powers you know the court often suggest that especially when it's dispute between Congress and the executive branch not only them but especially there the the Congress or in the presidential often you know be required to try to work out their differences without resort to the judiciary of the judiciary away she kind of stay in that lane should stay back a bit from some serious disputes about the constitutionality of government action and the idea is that the courts are not supposed to be kind of the constantly interfering referees of dispute about the legality of of government action that Congress has a lot of tools to use against the president and it should often try to use those rather than writing to court you know for example refusing to confirm executive branch nominees until the president gives an awesome to Congress cares about or withholding funding for a project that the executive branch wants until the executive branch comes around the Congress issue of things so and to the members of Congress in the DC case now have the option of asking for hearing by the entire DC circuit court of appeals and bank hearing or going to the Supreme Court what are their best chances well on the one hand the lower court was unanimous and treated it as a fairly straightforward decision so I think that reduces the likelihood that either the full DC circuit on back or the Supreme Court would take it on the other hand it's you know it's quite a significant issue in our politics and in government today and there might be a feeling of a need to rule on something like this especially since other plan if you've been trying to challenge what they they see is president trump's receipt of unconstitutional emoluments from foreign governments other plans have been unsuccessful in getting their cases heard so this perhaps might be some sense that a major issue like this would be highly review it if it was not heard out of by the by quarter the Supreme Court so there are two other cases percolating through the courts one in New York and one in Virginia in Virginia already the three judge panel ruled against the ages of Maryland and DC and in favor of trump and that's gone before and on bank court do you have any inkling of how the bank court might come out on that but I think it's somewhat difficult to predict how these cases are going to come out because of the novelty because of the political sensitivity when the fourth circuit court of appeals is hearing this closely divided between democratic and Republican appointees also which I think is it an additional level of difficulty in predicting outcomes the case in Manhattan is a different story the second circuit court of appeals revive the lawsuit thereby restaurant and hotel owners accusing trump of violating the emoluments clause is the plaintiff there say they're losing business because state and foreign officials were switching to trump properties there's a better case for standing than the AG's or the Congress this is the case so far as you know had an initial victory at the court of appeals level but you know I personally see it as the weakest of them you
