Appeals Court Dismisses Maryland, DC Lawsuit Challenging President’s Ownership Of DC Hotel

July 10th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by Maryland and the District of Columbia claiming President Donald Trump is accepting illegal profits from foreign and state government visitors at his Washington hotel. A three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled unanimously not on the merits of the case, but on the plaintiffs' legal standing.   Attorneys General Brian  Frosh, of Maryland, and Karl A. Racine, of the District of Columbia, filed the suit in 2017, seeking to invoke the Constitution's little-tested emoluments clause. The decision halts numbers of subpoenas to federal agencies and Trump's business entities for records related to the hotel that had been sought in the case.

    AG, Frosh, needs to find something more productive for the St of Md, than wasting taxpayers money on “back door” ways of attacking our president (which he’s known to despise). Why doesn’t he investigate how he allowed state employee’s personal medical data breach (at least twice), or something like that??
