Democratic lawmakers are appealing their emoluments case against President Trump to the Supreme Court after a federal appeals court ruled that they lacked standing to sue over alleged constitutional violations.

The 215 members of Congress are accusing Trump of violating the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause, which prohibits federal officials from receiving gifts or money from foreign governments without congressional approval, by continuing to operate and profit from his hotel chain while in office.

The brief says Trump has been "violating this critical constitutional prohibition for his entire term in office." It was filed with the Supreme Court on Monday.
