Norman Eisen quotes

May 24 2017 - China

As a legal matter, the trademark itself is a thing of value, as proven by how hard the president has fought for some of these trademarks over the years, in China and elsewhere. The Constitution simply does not allow him to collect foreign tributes of this kind while he sits in the Oval

May 09 2017

It appears that he may end up as a de facto special government employee. As such, he would be subject to the conflicts rules, including under 18 USC 208. If so, that would make him potentially criminally liable if he worked on a repeal of the ethanol mandate that would boost CVR's stock price and enrich him. Of course, that's a lot of

Ivanka has so many China ties and conflicts, yet she and Jared appear deeply involved in China contacts and policy. I would never have allowed it. For their own sake, and the country's, Ivanka and Jared should consider stepping away from China

Apr 12 2017

If you could bring the founders back, to a person they would say, no, you can't accept that. How can we be confident that he is making decisions in the interest of the United States when he has these enormous potential inducements?feedback

Mar 31 2017

Mar 30 2017

There's been a fourth act and a fifth act, like in a good Shakespeare play. But just like 'Henry IV' has Part 1 and Part 2, I don't doubt there will be another five acts – 'Walt I, Part 1' and Walt I, Part 2' – because of Trump's failure to do what is

Mar 29 2017

An ethics executive order is only as good as the desire to enforce it. If the president is serious about draining the swamp, he will do something about his appointees who are flouting his order. To have people ride the revolving door so quickly is not draining the

Mar 22 2017

While demanding litigation be dropped can sometimes be part of a legitimate negotiation, Trump's bullying, boastful manner here is odious. It also sends a dangerous message: he is prepared to retaliate against those who exercise their legal rights in

Mar 08 2017

We have never before seen a president aggressively pursuing valuable benefits from a foreign government of this kind, and it creates an obvious conflict of interest for him. If he is relying on the Chinese government for the extension of his business activity on this kind of unprecedented scope and scale, how can he be trusted, for example, to stanch the flow of American jobs out of the U.S. and into China, or otherwise act against the interests of his benefactors?feedback

Mar 08 2017

Every American should be profoundly concerned by this enormous expansion of President Trump's entanglements with China. If the president is receiving these flows of benefits from China, how can he be trusted to staunch the flow of jobs from the United States to that country?feedback

Feb 14 2017 - China

"There can be no question that it is a terrible idea for Donald Trump to be accepting the registration of these valuable property rights from China while he's a sitting president of the United States,". "It's fair to conclude that this is an effort to influence Mr. Trump that is relatively inexpensive for the Chinese, potentially very valuable to him, but it could be very costly for the United States.".feedback

Jan 27 2017

It raises the question of whether the reason he saw the UK PM first was in order to promote his business interests and seek unconstitutional emoluments (that is, benefits) from foreign lands. It is unsavory on its face, and it is an illustration of how his decisions will be clouded by the constant overhang of his

Jan 23 2017

Our mission at CREW is to make government better, and instead we've had to spend a lot of time to deal with Donald Trump's unconstitutional behavior. The lawsuit is being brought to enforce the Constitution. In order to establish the emoluments violations, we are going to need to see the president's tax returns. We're going to seek them in discovery, so this is a vehicle in order to enforce the Constitution to get those

It appears that he may end up as a de facto special government employee. As such, he would be subject to the conflicts rules, including under 18 USC 208. If so, that would make him potentially criminally liable if he worked on a repeal of the ethanol mandate that would boost CVR's stock price and enrich him. Of course, that's a lot of ifs, and we have to see what his actual conduct

I don't like the way it looks having Karp in that room. Even if it had a much larger market cap or if he were a much bigger personality, it still looks as if [Thiel] is using the transition for personal
