‘Major Lawsuit’ Planned Against Trump by Attorney Generals of Maryland and D.C.

The attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia said Monday they will sue President Trump, alleging he has violated the Constitution by taking payments from foreign governments as president.

Maryland Atty. Gen. Brian Frosh outlined details of the lawsuit in an interview with the Associated Press. Much of it is focused on alleged violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, based on Trump’s real estate holdings. The clause prohibits the president and other government employees from accepting foreign gifts and payments without congressional approval.

The Trump Hotel in the nation’s capital affects business in the Washington area and is part of the reason the lawsuit was filed by officials in the District of Columbia and Maryland, Frosh said.

“We have economic interests that are impacted, but the most salient factor is that when the president is subject to foreign influence, we have to be concerned about whether the actions he’s taking — both at home and abroad — are the result of payments that he is receiving at the Trump Hotel, payments that he is receiving at Mar-a-Lago, payments that he is receiving at Trump Tower, payments that he is receiving in all of his other far-flung enterprises, and he brags about it,” Frosh said.
