Exploiting shutdown, Trumpís lawyers try to delay emoluments case
This creates an awkward set of incentives for the man at the heart of the case.


Quote:

I canít speak to Donald Trumpís motivations in any detail, but the more the shutdown and the emoluments case are linked, the more incentive he has to keep the government shut down in order to block legal scrutiny of his legally dubious personal profits from foreign sources.

To a very real extent, this reinforces the importance of the case itself: weíre not supposed to have a system in which a president should even confront these kinds of choices.

Nevertheless, as Politicoís report added, ďA short time after the government filed the request, the court agreed to put the case on hold indefinitely.Ē
