The attorneys General of Maryland Karl Racine (Racine, Karl) and the district of Columbia Brian Frosch (Brian Frosh) plan on Monday to file a lawsuit on President Donald trump. According to The Washington Post, they suspect him of violating anti-corruption article of the Constitution, and that he after his inauguration, “received millions from foreign governments”.
The first of its kind lawsuit against state officials based on the fact that trump has decided to retain ownership of his company, when he became President. Even before taking office, the billionaire said that he passes his business to the management of the sons, to resolve a conflict of interest, but prosecutors allege that trump continues to receive reports about their assets.
If a Federal judge will move the case, the attorneys General will first require to uncover from trump to disclose tax reporting in order to assess the degree of foreign trade transactions. However, they are confident that the lawsuit will reach the Supreme court, as the lawyers of the President will insist that the proceeds shall become the property of the public.
Attorneys General became interested in the hotel Trump International Hotel, opened last year in Washington. In particular, they are alarmed there is an event organized by the Embassy of Kuwait, originally scheduled at the Four Seasons hotel. Also under suspicion were facts of reservations by the representatives of Saudi Arabia — a country that trump visited first after he occupied the White house.
