CREW Statement on Emoluments Case Victory
Following today’s decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to revive Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)’s landmark emoluments case against President Trump, CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:
“We thank and applaud the judges of the Second Circuit for their decision today. We never wanted to be in a position where it would be necessary to go to court to compel the President of the United States to follow the Constitution. However, President Trump left us no choice, and we will proudly fight as long as needed to ensure Americans are represented by an ethical government under the rule of law.
If President Trump would like to avoid the case going further and curtail the serious harms caused by his unconstitutional conduct, now would be a good time to divest from his businesses and end his violations of the Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution.
It has been an honor to work with courageous plaintiffs and an all-star legal team to fight for the Constitution, and we look forward to moving this case forward to victory.”
