Trump Demands Stop To Emoluments Case As State AGs Subpoena 38 Witnesses

You know it's bad when you are reaching all the way back to Washington and Jefferson slave-run plantations to say "but, but, but they did it, too!" 

From the article:

Trump attorneys cite Washington D.C. land records from 1793 to show that George Washington purchased "several lots of federal land" during his presidency, adding that "no concern was raised that such transactions conferred a benefit."

The DOJ goes further, however, and reaches for the slave-run plantations that Washington and Thomas Jefferson ran while in office as examples how the Constitution permits presidents to run private businesses while in office.
