It's obvious by now that Trump has been violating the emoluments clause for almost the entirety of his presidency.
I did some research this morning to see if there were any penalties for violating the clause, and there are.
The American Constitution Society said that the only remedy is impeachment.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court threw out the emoluments case against Trump. The court instructed the lower courts to wipe away previous lower court opinions that went against Trump because he is no longer in office.
Based on the violations cited in the Mueller report, the House could have brought 10 impeachable charges against Trump. Wisely, the House decided on the KISS approach (keep it simple, stupid) so they only brought two - and they still only got one senator to agree to convict on one of the counts.
The same principle applies to the emolument violations. Sure, he's guilty, but he has ALREADY been impeached (again) and further legal proceedings would be a waste of time.
