    You would think that wouldn’t be a challenge for a politician with almost 5 decades of experience, and his hand picked seasoned staff, pitted against an incompetent orange upstart.

    Thanks for, not just verifying, but actually being the cause of what a waste of time this subforum is. You should watch the Monty Python skit... You're acting like the John Cleese character.
    M: I came here for a good argument.
    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    Wait, he had a plan when he wasn't in charge, and doesn't now that he's the President?

    Biden campaigned from his basement, announcing he had a plan to save us.
    Then he comes out and finds it's not going to end any time soon.

    He may still be a maniac, and he may be gone; but according to the SC today he wasn't corrupt.

    There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth, but hey... the courts have ruled! Right?

    The SC did not rule that Trump was not corrupt.

    I'm going to quote the article here, to avoid being accused of putting words in other people's mouths:

    "The Supreme Court dismissed the case and vacated the lower court ruling against Trump because now that he is no longer president, he doesn't stand to benefit from his hotel's placement near the White House."
    by Nicholas Rowan, Staff Writer | January 25, 2021 10:38 AM

    Bold emphasis mine. Trump's actions while in office almost certainly contravened the emoluments clause.

    What proof do you have for that wild conspiracy theory? Why can't you accept the results of a court decision?

    --edit--

    I'll add you to the list of folks that don't get sarcasm...

    Jeez Louise, can't you read? That WAS the court's decision - and I can accept, on one level, that the case is now moot. You do know what that means, yes? It does not mean that the SC considers him innocent of corruption with regards to the emolument clause.

    Oh, and zing. I can see you're good at this. ^^

    Just in case anyone gives a monkey's about any of this.

    20-330
    TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF U.S. V. CREW, ET AL.
    The motion of Scholar Seth Barrett Tillman, et al. for leave to file a brief as amici curiae is granted. The motion of Professor Lawrence A. Hamermesh for leave to file a brief as amicus curiae is granted. The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit with instructions to dismiss the case as moot.
    See United States v. Munsingwear, Inc., 340 U. S. 36 (1950).

    20-331
    TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF U.S. V. DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, ET AL.
    The motion of Scholar Seth Barrett Tillman, et al. for leave to file a brief as amici curiae is granted. The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit with instructions to dismiss the case as moot.
    See United States v. Munsingwear, Inc., 340 U. S. 36 (1950).

    Definition of moot (from Merriam Webster 2021)

    1a : open to question : debatable
    1b : subjected to discussion : disputed
    2 : deprived of practical significance : made abstract or purely academic


    Definition #2 is the meaning that the SC use in their rulings quoted above.


    A case being rendered moot does not mean the accused was innocent of the original charges.

    The rulings above are direct quotes from the Order List of the Supreme Court, US.

    Now look up "standing" and "laches", two other procedural methods for dismissing cases without considering the merits.
