Commentary: Frosh’s Pursuit of President Trump is Unconstitutional

By Richard J. Douglas 

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.
