    Supreme Court To Take Up Trump DC Hotel Case

    Published on

    The U.S. Supreme Court has consented to hear a closely watched case to determine whether Democratic lawmakers can legally sue to obtain documents related to former President Donald Trump’s former hotel in Washington, D.C.

    “The hotel documents have largely fallen out of the dispute’s focus, as several lawmakers who filed the lawsuit have since departed Congress or passed away, and many of the requested materials were obtained by Democrats in other ways. However, the case will have far-reaching effects on the minority party’s ability to scrutinize a presidential administration, according to The Hill.

    “Democrats, in seeking the documents, leveraged a federal law known as the ‘Seven Member Rule.’ It allows any seven members of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability or any five members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee to ask for information within their purview from executive agencies. After a Trump-era agency declined to turn over the documents under the rule, Democrats sued to enforce their demand. In a brief, unsigned order on Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to consider whether the lawmakers have legal standing to move ahead in their case,” the outlet added.

    The case will be considered during the court’s subsequent annual term, so a decision is likely to be rendered in 2024.

    The Democratic lawmakers’s attorneys requested that the lower judgment be upheld.

    “This case is a legal unicorn,” the lawmakers wrote in court filings. “There is no conflict among the circuits over standing under Section 2954. Indeed, only three times over the course of nearly a century have Members sued to enforce Section 2954, and neither of the earlier cases resulted in an appellate ruling on standing (or anything else).”

    Trump was in the news over the weekend due to new speculations concerning his potential running mate in 2024.

    Trump is likely to “stun the world” with his choice for vice president in 2024, and he identifies three potential candidates: Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Arizona Republican Kari Lake, and South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem.

    On Lake, the report states: “Lake certainly looked ascendant last fall when she was competing for Arizona’s governorship. She enjoyed Trump’s endorsement, and she enjoyed favorable coverage in conservative media. It’s not hard to understand why. Lake is a unique creature, spewing the hard right rhetoric that MAGA Nation finds so endearing while doing so with the glitz and polish of a seasoned TV reporter. She was delivering Trump’s message – but she was doing so without the spray tan and the guttural accent and the lack of eloquence. Rather, Lake delivered Trump’s message all pretty-like.”

    On Greene, the report said: “Trump loves her and she loves Trump. And impressively, MTG seems to be pivoting into a position of more mainstream acceptance with the GOP (as demonstrated through her support of Kevin McCarthy for speaker). The version of MTG that can appeal to both MAGA and the mainstream is a concerning premise, and someone that Trump has his eye on as a prospective running mate with appeal in the newly-in-play Georgia.”

    And on Noem, the report speculates: “The governor of South Dakota is apparently on Trump’s shortlist. Noem said she would be shocked if Trump chose her and I think she means it; she is a long-shot pick. But she’s got a few of the things Trump guns for. One, Noem has been loyal to Trump, vowing to support the former president through the 2024 campaign. And Trump values loyalty above seemingly all else.”

    Last week, Trump’s campaign staff revealed some intriguing details about his potential running mate.
