    Are you really that daft?

    This is what I posted.

    18 U.S.C. Section 202 specifically states, as relating to Section 208 which deals with financial interests:

    But you failed to put forth the law. Instead quoting a shit, right wing blog.

    Do you know what you are talking about or is the blog doing your thinking, Mermaid Whisperer? I mean clearly you have no clue of what you are speaking, so please, writhe a bit longer for my entertainment. Call the FBI on me again to complain that I am right and you are wrong.

    My God dude, that is the law.

    You are not very bright are you?

    That law I posted well here it is since you can't manage to copy and paste it into your little search engine.

    Jesus H. Christ.

    Should be a simple thing. There is what you claimed is the law that says the president can not have conflicts of interest. I posted all of the text at your link. Just highlight where it says what you claim it says. You can prove me wrong in an instant, publicly. Please, do it.
