Democrats bring another bad faith claim to distract Trump
With lawsuit, Democratic state attorneys general escalate campaign against TrumpWhy didn't Democrats make the same claim for Obama's millions in royalties for the sale of his books overseas? Well, it would have been as dumb a case as this one is. There is also the issue of whether these AG's have standing for such a suit. This is mainly about Democrats trying to distract the President from pursuing his agenda which if successful might make it hard for Democrats to win future elections.
In the first lawsuit of its kind brought by government entities, D.C. and Maryland allege payments by foreign governments to President Trump’s businesses violate anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution. The case showcases the increasingly influential role in Washington of Democratic state attorneys general at a time when their party is largely shut out of power.
