A Trump administration attorney argued Monday that President Trump is not violating conflict of interest laws when foreign officials stay at his hotels.

Brett Shumate, a deputy assistant attorney general,┬ámaintained in federal court that the president should not be held responsible for foreign officials who attempt to “sow favor” with the Trump administration, CNN reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

The argument came as part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) effort to dismiss a case claiming Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

When the federal judge in the case asked the difference between sowing favor and bribery, Shumate argued that bribery requires “some corrupt intent,” according to CNN.

U.S. District Court Judge Peter Messitte, who was appointed by former President Clinton, will reportedly decide by the end of July whether the case will proceed.
