Yesterday, at 5:01pm, the Office of Government Ethics Friday News Dumped Donald Trump’s Personal Financial Disclosure. Trump’s favorite lawyer Sheri “Manilla Folders” Dillon had requested that the OGE accept an unsigned accounting of Trump’s assets, but OGE director Walter “Badass” Shaub was not having it. So now we know that Trump’s net worth is somewhere north of $1.4 billion, and his liabilities are probably about $500 million. Donald Trump repeatedly claimed to be worth $10 billion, but he also claimed to have a plan to fix Iraq and to know more than the generals, so make of that what you will.

Maybe a forensic accountant will do a deep dive and find a smoking gun in the 98-page document. Perhaps the most interesting information is that Trump netted about $600 million between and January 2016 and April 2017. As reported in The Atlantic, Donald Trump is clearly profiting off his position as president.

Properties that Trump frequently visited as president saw the largest boost in income. Trump claimed more than $37 million in income from Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach County resort in Florida he described as his “Winter White House,” as well as $20 million in income from the nearby golf club he owns in Jupiter, Florida. His claimed Mar-a-Lago income rose rapidly since his last two financial disclosures with the FEC: Trump reported more than $15 million in income from the resort in the 2015 report, followed by $29 million in the 2016 version.

Donald Trump spends almost every weekend at one of his own commercial properties. Trump businesses are cashing in on the president’s security detail – the Secret Service had racked up $35,000 on golf cart rental fees alone by April. But the main reason Mar-A-Lago doubled its income since 2015 is that people are willing to pay more for access to the president. The Florida golf club doubled its initiation fee to $200,000 in 2017. NOT A COINCIDENCE.

As the NYPost pointed out, Trump’s New Jersey club even used the Wedding Crasher in Chief in its marketing materials before someone told them that non-Jerseyans like their corruption a smidge less blatant.

Trump’s joining nuptial ceremonies is so routine, in fact, that a now-discontinued brochure from the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster once touted that his likely appearance was a added feature of booking a wedding there.

​”​If [Trump] is on-site for your big day, he will likely stop in & congratulate the happy couple. He may take some photos with you but we ask you and your guests to be respectful of his time & privacy​,” the brochure said.

And this is all hilarious, in a Har Har We’re Descending into Banana Republic Dictator Territory kind of way. But since the president’s money grab is going to be fodder for the three pending emoluments suits against him, let’s have a quick Lawsplainer on who is suing our Fearless Leader and how they might find the OGE data very interesting.

CREW Lawsuit

Immediately after Trump was sworn in, Citizens for Responsiblity and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a lawsuit alleging that Trump was violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by taking payments from foreign governments at his hotels and restaurants.

[N]o Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

CREW initially filed as a citizen watchdog concerned that Trump’s ongoing business dealings blatantly violate the Constitution. The group was later joined by two additional plaintiffs, an association of restaurant workers and the banquet booker for two competing hotels, who are losing money as clients take their business to Trump properties in attempt to suck up to the president. At the opening reception for the DC outlet of the Trump International Hotel in November, one Middle Eastern diplomat told the Washington Post, “Believe me, all the delegations will go there.” An Asian representative was similarly blunt.

“Why wouldn’t I stay at his hotel blocks from the White House, so I can tell the new president, ‘I love your new hotel!’ Isn’t it rude to come to his city and say, ‘I am staying at your competitor?’ ” said one Asian diplomat.

Indeed, the Kuwaiti Embassy had already sent out Save the Date cards for its annual holiday party at the Four Seasons Hotel. A few days after the publicity gala at the Trump International, the Kuwaitis moved their party to the president’s hotel. Weird!

The Trump International Hotel is the most egregious example, because Trump rents the hotel from the United States Government under a lease which specifies that no person in government may profit from it.

“No … elected official of the Government of the United States … shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom…”

But since Donald Trump theoretically put his interests in a trust held by his sons, the GSA says his ownership stake is kosher enough. Trump still owns 75% of the hotel and can draw money on it or even revoke the trust at any time, but this is all fine.  Did we mention that they bumped the room rates by hundreds of dollars after Trump won in November?

DC and Maryland Suits

On June 12, Attorneys General for DC and Maryland filed suit against the President alleging that his vast business interests make it unclear whose interests he is representing.

“Constituents must know that a president who orders our sons and daughters into harm’s way is not acting out of concern for his own business,” Frosh said. “They must know that we will not enter into a treaty with another nation because our president owns a golf course there.”

Maryland and DC make the same arguments as CREW: DC taxpayers own the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and Maryland subsidizes nearby National Harbor, both of which compete with the Trump Hotel for bookings. The OGE disclosure says that Trump earned $19.6 million from the Trump International Hotel over the past 15 months, some of which would undoubtedly have gone to other hotels if Hillary Clinton were president.

The Georgian Ambassador knows how this game is played.

But DC and Maryland also argue that Trump is violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause in Article II, which prohibits the president from receiving any “other Emolument from the United States, or any of them” over and above his salary. This law was designed to stop rich states from buying influence with the Commander in Chief. But DC and Maryland are uniquely dependent on federal largesse.

In 2014, federal government spending accounted for 42% of DC’s domestic product and 28% of Maryland’s. How can DC and Maryland say no to Trump when he controls the federal bureaucracy? If Don, Jr and Eric come to DC with a dispute about the water bill, will Poppy Trump hit back if the city doesn’t cave?

Congressional Democrats’ Suit

This week, the Washington Post reported that 196 Democrats from the House and Senate will be filing their own emoluments lawsuit. Under the Constitution, Congress has the power to permit the president to accept emoluments. Congressional Republicans have been silent on Trump’s use of the presidency as a marketing tool, neither granting nor denying him permission to profit from the office. Yes, we at Wonkette are also fainting from shock.

The White House will certainly argue that the Democrats, as the minority party, lack standing to challenge the president’s cash grab. On the other hand, Republicans spent eight goddamn years suing Obama, so there’s plenty of precedent.

At the end of the day, Donald Trump doesn’t meet the bare qualifications to be president. Not just in the NO SHIT!!! obvious ways. But in the sense that the Constitution forbids a person with his level of financial entanglements from holding the office. Trump’s lawyer Sheri Dillon has repeatedly claimed that it’s not “realistic” to require the client to divest himself from all his holdings. And that may be true. But no one forced him to sign up for the job. And don’t forget, Republicans made Jimmy Carter sell his family’s peanut farm before he took office. Not that you were expecting anything less than gross hypocrisy from the GOP! But still!

    It was a big deal when they made Carter sell his peanut farm. It was a big deal when Carter was elected in the first place. He was from Georgia and my parents actually met him while he was governor there. I remembered about the peanut farm because my mom thought it was silly.

    • LadyLaz

      Yup. They did. Carter of course was/is highly ethical and deeply devout Christian. Everything the current GOP is not.

      • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

        I remember when they made Carter a laughing stock because of “I’ve committed adultry in my own heart many times”. Now look at what they elected.

        A Democrat who has been remarried at all cannot get elected. Adulterers? Bring them on.

    And then, there is this, from a conservative writer:
    Donald Trump Is Proving Too Stupid to Be President
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-trump-proving-too-stupid-183116604.html

    “I’m starting to suspect that Donald Trump may not have been right when he said, “You know, I’m like a smart person.” The evidence continues to mount that he is far from smart — so far, in fact, that he may not be capable of carrying out his duties as president.”

    “Why does he know so little? Because he doesn’t read books or even long articles. “I never have,” he proudly told a reporter last year. “I’m always busy doing a lot.” As president, Trump’s intelligence briefings have been dumbed down, denuded of nuance, and larded with maps and pictures because he can’t be bothered to read a lot of words. He’d rather play golf.”

    “The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that if the vice president and a majority of the cabinet certify that the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” he can be removed with the concurrence of two-thirds of both houses. That won’t happen, because Republicans are too craven to stand up to Trump. But on the merits perhaps it should. After nearly five months in office, Trump has given no indication that he possesses the mental capacity to be president.”

    • Jgb979

      “Busy doing a lot”

      Define “a lot”.

      Even as leader of the free world, arguably one of the hardest jobs on the planet, literally all you do is tweet, watch television, and play golf.

      I’m not sure you even had an official “job” before that. Mitt Romney was a retired capitalism vampire squid, and I’m pretty sure he accomplished 10x what you did during the day.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        Not so fun fact: Max Boot has been pushing RWNJ ideas for decades and only just now has he noticed that Trump is an idiot? And a Putin pee-hooker whore?

        Too late, pal, and a ruble short. No pass for you.

        Though he might just keep an eye out for guys with umbrellas. I’m just sayin’.

        • Latverian Diplomat

          Yes, I figured the Jeanne Kirkpatrick Chair at the CFI would be a RWNJ, I was just thought there might be an interesting angle on why he’s not on the Trump Train.

    • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

      If you don’t read “a lot”, then you’re just not qualified to be in government.

      I mean, seriously. What branch of government can you be in that doesn’t require a lot of reading? A lot of reading is in the actual job description. That’s like wanting to be an Olympic swimmer but having no interest in water.

  • LadyLaz

    So I mixed it up a little with the trump apologists at slate under the article they have on the emollient lawsuits. And at one point I posted a screed about how every GOP (minus like Rubin, Flake, Romney, and Frum)* had exposed who they truly were. They don’t care about the constitution, graft, or national security…. they care about destroying the social security net and dropping taxes. That is it.

    The response from one was this: you wouldn’t accept anyone accomplished in the whitehouse. If everyobe had to give up his or her businesses, we’d only get middling people.

    So sorry but (1) don’t like the terms of employment, don’t apply for the job, (2) Romney and other wealthy people had no issue with blind trusts, and (3) it’s really sad that the only thing you consider an accomplishment is the size of your bank account; I’ll call Eisenhower and tell em he want accomplished… ex-teacher LBJ too.

    Just. Fucking. Sad. I will never get over that my husband voted for this turd.

    • Paperless Tiger

      We all make mistakes. Trump said he would divest from his conflicts of interest. He lied. Now he’s got to go. It’s just that simple.

      • LadyLaz

        Yes but who actually believed him.

        Although I have to admit, trump has been worse than even I expected. I really thought he’d get solid GOP operatives in to keep him in the guard rails…. like Bush 2 with Cheney.

        • Vagenda and Pee-ara

          You may have to divorce your husband. I thought Trump might actually be OK if he pivoted to the left, but he took a hard right turn AND is spectacularly incompetent to boot. That may be a blessing in disguise.

    oddly enough, apparently the revenue at the DC hotel is flat or falling (and that’s the taxpayer’s asset, the projections were why Trump got the building).

    I wonder if a) it’s an overpriced shit hole, b) any increase in foreign gov’t spending is outweighed by a drop in “regular people” not staying there.

    • LadyLaz

      C) messing with the books

    • BadKitty904

      I’m more curious – Trump’s ‘popularity” being what it is – as to how it’s still standing.

      • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

        well, that’s what confused me a bit – if foreign governments and other wheeler dealers are so eager to impress him by staying at the hotel, why is revenue flat?
        But I think LadyLaz has a point.
        IIRC, the contract states certain things would happen at certain levels of profitability.
        Which would not be unheard of.
        I don’t do commercial real estate, but I know one *type* of lease fluctuates on the business’ revenue or net (I forget) – so if my grocery store does under $100k this month, I pay x for my lease, if over $100k, I pay y.

          There was an old American political tradition following the founding of our Republic and well into the 19th century.

    BTW, from today:

    “Trump’s Business Ties in Persian Gulf Raise Questions About His Allegiances”

    “Now a feud has broken out among these three crucial American allies, and Mr. Trump has thrown his weight firmly behind the two countries where he has business ties, raising new concerns about the appearance of a conflict between his public role and his financial incentives.

    Mr. Trump has said he is backing Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates because Qatar is “a funder of terror at a very high level.” But his stance toward Qatar, which is host to the largest American air base in the region, has differed sharply from the positions of the Pentagon and State Department. The secretaries of defense and state have stayed neutral, urging unity against the common enemy of the Islamic State.


    “Other countries in the Middle East see what is happening and may think, ‘We should be opening golf courses’ or ‘We should be buying rooms at the Trump International,’” said Brian Egan, a State Department legal adviser under the Obama administration. “Even if there is no nefarious intent on behalf of the president or the Trumps, for a president to be making money from business holdings in sensitive places around the world is likely to have an impact.”

  • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

    This absolutely brings up the subject of entitlement. Nobody is “entitled” to be president. There are qualifications for a reason. There are rules and norms for a reason. If you have no interest in doing any of that then simply do not run.

    It’s like people who open a business and then complain about raising the minimum wage. If you can’t afford to pay your employees a decent wage, then you have no place owning a business.

    People in this country think they’re so “entitled” to things. Entitlement is not what we’re being told it is. It’s not “I’m poor and deserve to live, so help me eat”, it’s “I’m a bored rich white guy past his prime and I want this thing, so you can all go to hell”.

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      Ironically, Trump didn’t think he’d win. He thought he’d be out of the primaries in a month. Like a lot of people, he wildly overestimated the intelligence of the American people. I’m one of the few people who actually thought he could win, because I live amongst the idiots.

      • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

        I have actually believed this from the start. His dream was really to make some waves, get some publicity and spend the next eight years as a Hillary Clinton foil. He didn’t take into account that we live in a country where 14 million adults believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

        Seriously. 7% believe that.

          My personal favorite was that the “real” unemployment number under Obama was 50%. My RWNJ told me that. I asked him who he knew that was unemployed. He said the felon who paints his house, who just went back in to rehab for the 8th time was having a tough time getting a job. I asked him if he’d noticed all the help wanted signs around our area. The other day he said to me “have you seen all those help wanted signs?” Apparently he started noticing the signs right after Trump was elected.

Monday we are going back to the dentist to see if we can give hi some form of prosthesis for his three missing front teeth but chances of that are very slim. In the meantime he sounds like huey, duey and louie which is kinda hilarious.

    Now asleep upstairs so today was a good day.

        I read that abortion was considered okay before the fetus moved up until the early 1900s. Life begins at conception was pretty recent.

        • It is. It is kind of difficult to accept that life begins at conception when life wasn’t considered particularly viable until the child had survived outside the womb for three years. Before then, eh, babies die. What are you gonna’ do?

      I guess on the plus side, with all the corruptly-obtained revenue he’s scamming off the American taxpayers, it will be slightly more difficult for Donny to escape the dozens of lawsuits against him by declaring bankruptcy again, even after his corrupt Russian mob banks call in his laundered “loans.”

        you already know the answer to that. he doesn’t pay for anything.

    Note that the emoluments clause does not say congress may or can rule on receiving emoluments (profit or gain) from foreign countries. It says SHALL. Meaning it must approve anything. And congress shall rule before any emoluments are received. It does not give congress the option of ignoring this blatant violation of the constitution. Of course, in carrying out their mandated duties, they would have to publicly sign on to allowing Trump to use his position for huge financial gain. Something they do not want their names tied to in the 2018 elections. Or in American history books when they describe the massive corruption and failure in government laid at the feet of the Republican Party in 2017 and 2018, with their names prominently listed.

    The language in this is clear and unambiguous, unlike some other sections of the constitution. Because the people who wrote the constitution knew that as long as the nation they created survived, the unassailable idea of an elected official’s loyalty must be to the U.S. government, not to money or title received from a foreign power, would always apply.

  • CATMAN

    At the wedding I’m surprised that Donny didn’t claim the right of seigniorage, that allows a monarch to have sex with the bride on her wedding night–I’m sure it was from ignorance because if he knew about it, he would have demanded it

    • Celtic_Gnome

      A friend went on a cruise, and O.J. Simpson was on the cruise. She got a picture taken with him, and, when she showed us the picture, we asked her why she did that. She said he came up and insisted on having his picture taken with her, and she didn’t feel comfortable saying no to him.

      Nah, not “golf club” , it’s a “country club” and it’s fancy cause you can’t wear jeans, but “sporty” cause they don’t let women on the grass. And “exclusive” cause they don’t let the swarthy types join, like Italians.

            Nanna Rogers {1890-1981} and Mother Rogers {1925-2014} both REAL women, went to their graves believing that.
            They had a lot of credibility on this fact because both saw the nightmare of the 60s revolution for it’s deleterious results that loomed on the horizon then came to pass. AND both could pass an 8th Grade test from 1912. …. College graduates, ever since the education system was dummied down and watered down by AA beginning in the last quarter of the 20th century by and large can’t do that.
            They we’re a lot smarter than the average uneducated lemmings cast out upon society from those cauldrons of communism called colleges, today.

      Yes…all the “lies.”
      Isn’t it weird how the press articles alleging Donald Trump has been involved in some shady stuff over the years all come from mainstream press sources (some, such as WSJ, Forbes, and USA Today, even having reputations as having conservative biases)? There are two possibilities here:
      (1) there is a vast journalistic conspiracy to discredit Donald Trump that includes companies with a history of backing conservative or Republican candidates and policies, that is so unrelenting that it even included Fox News prior to Trump winning the Republican presidential nomination a year ago; or
      (2) Donald Trump is a pathological liar with a history of unethical business practices that are well documented, going back over 30 years. Any talk of his many problems is merely people wanting to rationalize their support for someone completely unfit for public office, and who has many well-document ethical and moral flaws that they are willing to overlook because they like how he insults the people they already don’t like.
      Gee…which could it be? I’m so perplexed.

      • Buddy_Rogers

        WSJ, Forbes, USA Today? Have they printed evidence of that Russia trough of bullhsit yet?
        You should stop seeking news from yellow journalists.

        BTW, Forbes is in such bad shape they have made me a free subscriber so they can fluff their circulation numbers and rip-off their advertisers. Doesn’t that make THEM dishonest liars?

          • Incoming Ham

            Nope, he wouldn’t.

          • Scrofula

            That slash is just such unnecessary lineage, breaking up the flow like that.
            I know, make a sparkline!

          • Incoming Ham

            Better yet, don’t clutter it, just leave a space, or if necessary use a simple colon.

          • Incoming Ham

            Also too: His Napoleon Russia Campaign graphic is a really brilliant piece of information design.

          • Scrofula

            I really wish more people could see it. He really is a modest man, keeps his best stuff out of the public eye, would never sent it in mailers all the fucking time (I have all three books).

          • Incoming Ham

            I’ve been to a couple of his seminars and have all of the books. He is a quiet genius.

        • AuntyMaude

          hahaha. Oh you’re not kidding.

    • Me not sure
    • HooverVilles

      Not ISO standard

  • doktorzoom

    Looks like there was an idiot here earlier. Troll-B-Gon has been sprayed.

    • WomanInThePersistence

      Thank you.

    • SeekingCovfefeBarbie

      Thanks! Glad you showed him he couldn’t “exercise his free option.”

    • JAKvirginia

      Man!! Comes in here being all snotty and not nice, then leaves and takes his comments with him. How rude!!

    • Incoming Ham

      Merci mille fois.

    • SeeTrain65

      The glue traps must not have worked.

  • Has anyone at a wedding he’s tried to crash ever told Trump he’s not welcome there?

  • Poly_Ester

    When the Emperor puts in an appearance at a wedding at one of his properties does he assert the ancient royal privilege dibs on the bride?

    • AuntyMaude

      Good yet groddy to the max question.

  • dshwa

    We turned the presidency into a bauble to be bought when we created the dark money mess. It’s hard to be surprised that this is what it’s turned into.

  • ThanksSatan

    His liability is at least $750 million.

  • Mavenmaven

    The GOP, party of corruption. The Greedy Old Party.

    • HooverVilles

      Greedy Old Patriarchs. That’s moar betterer, IMHO.

    • Pilotshark

      Greed Over Patriotism

  • Zyxomma

    Thanks, $5F. Just what I expected, but he is wealthier than I thought. Unless he’s not.

    • Incoming Ham

      I think we will find that his liabilities are actually higher, just tied up in litigation.

  • phoenix00

    Mirror mirror on the wall, show me the biggest grifter of them all….

  • AuntyMaude

    Did I dream this or isn’t The Big Fat D supposed to be donating all his emoluments to “charity?” Always wondered which charity in particular. That word is way too vague for me.

    • AuntyMaude

      Yep, I dreamt it. It’s his paycheck he’s donating which pales in comparison to his property income.

      • Odd Jørgensen

        I believe he said he would donate any income from foreign dignitaries at his hotels, golf clubs etc as well.

  • Internet Hitler

    If Obama owned a hot dog cart he would have been impeached.
