Emoluments: what does the word mean?

I am a word junkie, and I make my living in an obscure part of technical communications, so it fits. Anyhow, I came across this article in the WaPo about DFT and his lawyers trying to redefine the word "emoluments". There is some fascinating history, and many of the links are also worthy of exploration. The amicus brief is exceptional, BTW.

Delay every GOP senator or congressman
There are so many ways this can be done - random searches, extra pat downs, more questions, searching of luggage and the subsequent bomb residue test... So many ways these assclowns can be delayed and miss their flights. Waiting for the supervisor to get back from her break is another gem.

The top of the list for this effort should be Mitch McConnell, for he is the main reason this is dragging on.
