An Oct. 17 article in the Maryland Reporter on Attorney General Brian Frosh asks: AG Frosh’s broad legal power: Partisanship or ‘long overdue’? The correct option, though unstated, is: “unconstitutional.”
On June 12, 2017, exceeding his authority under the Maryland Constitution, Mr. Frosh filed a federal suit for relief he must have known to be unconstitutional: an injunction against the President under the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments Clause. The Frosh suit will be dismissed.
