Trump Asks Maryland Judge to Dismiss DC Hotel ‘Emoluments’ Suit

President Donald Trump is asking a federal judge in Maryland to dismiss a lawsuit that argues that Trump’s acceptance of payments from foreign and state governments at his Washington hotel violates the Constitution.

A private lawyer for the president wrote in court papers this week that the suit should be tossed because the president cannot be sued in the matter either as an individual or in his official capacity.–trump-lawsuit-20180502-story.html
