Maryland and D.C. Attorneys General Brian Frosh & Karl Racine are suing President Donald Trump, alleging the President is profiting from his presidency.
The unprecedented suit contends that President Trump is in violation of the “Emoluments Clause” of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits gifts from foreign governments.
Frosh’s lawsuit is a result of SJ5, which allows Frosh to sue Trump at will, for any reason, using taxpayer money! The bill allocates one million dollars for Frosh to file lawsuits with or without the Governor’s approval!
This is yet another example of Attorney General Frosh coming unhinged after requesting that law enforcement not cooperate with federal immigration authorities. While this was only a “guidance memorandum”, the Attorney General not-so-subtly threatened to sue law enforcement agencies who do not comply.
Taxpayer money is being wasted on partisan politics!
