The Emoluments Clause has apparently never been litigated, but it has been interpreted and enforced through a long series of opinions of the Attorneys General and by less-frequent opinions of the Comptrollers General. Congress has also exercised its power of "Consent" under the clause by enacting the Foreign Gifts and Decorations Act, which authorizes federal employees to accept foreign governmental benefits of various kinds in specific circumstances.

here's the paragraph " The Emoluments Clause has apparently never been litigated, but it has been interpreted and enforced through a long series of opinions of the Attorneys General and by less-frequent opinions of the Comptrollers General. Congress has also exercised its power of "Consent" under the clause by enacting the Foreign Gifts and Decorations Act, which authorizes federal employees to accept foreign governmental benefits of various kinds in specific circumstances."

The Constitution does not preclude the President from accepting gifts from foreign countries or doing business with foreign countries while in office.

The first clue is where the emoluments clause is located: Article I, Section 9, Clause 8. Article I is exclusive to the legislative branch. George Washington received gifts while in office and did not seek permission from Congress because the emoluments clause did not apply to the President; Washington continued to sell tobacco to the same foreign countries while in office.

The emoluments clause was given construction by Congress when Alexander Hamilton was charged with enumerating all office holders under the United States: Report on the Salaries, Fees, and Emoluments of Persons Holding Civil Office Under the United States, 26 February 1793. This list, as keeping with the intent of the emoluments clause of the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution, and the purpose of the clause evidenced by the debates regarding only foreign ministers and other officers and no elected officials. It was comprised mostly of executive appointments.

Yes, that is where I found it. I apologize for not taking the time to add the author. My bad! But, that does not take away from the words of the author. Since posting those remarks I have been searching for any litigation concerning the emoluments clause. I can find none.
Thanks from Jimmyb

There is no litigation. It is not prosecutable regarding a President or George Washington et al. would have been prosecuted.
