DC/MD Attorneys General File Lawsuit Against PresidentTrump

Attorneys General Karl Racine of the District of Columbia and Brian Frosh of Maryland have announced that they are filing a lawsuit against President Trump alleging that he has violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution by accepting payments from foreign governments as president. The Trump Hotel is part of the reason that the lawsuit was filed by DC and MD. The U. S. Justice Department has said that the plaintiffs have not been harmed and have no standing to sue and that a sitting president cannot be sued in his official capacity.
