Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Besides Commerce which left in place race gerrymandering,

Besides the Oversight! subpoena power litigation which ages over multiply sessions,

Besides the impeachment saga in refining House rules and compelling evidence,

there are the emoluments cases (lost track of how many) all languishing in the most inferior courts. Here's an update demonstrating how appellate courts entertained Trump's opposition for 2 years. One court cleared standing of a 2x, irrc,  amended complaint. Definition, or test, of an emolument has stalled. But CREW is developing a theory of "zones of interest." Annoying stuff, but not the most annoying. You see, 4th Circuit is on to something. That is lack of feasible remedy for injured parties. 4th Circuit explains, enjoining Trump won't hide knowledge of Trump properties from everyone else.

Similarly, "blind trust" won't erase Trump knowledge of Trump properties. For achieve that level of ignorance, or innocence, the ct would have to prescribe something like a lobotomy for every president-elect. Or a vow of poverty, complete "divestment" of every ownership interests.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
