Everyone vs. Trump
- On Monday, the attorneys general from Maryland and Washington, D.C., sued President Trump, accusing him of violating the Constitution by accepting millions in payments and benefits from foreign governments.
- Then nearly 200 Democrats in Congress filed suit, also alleging that President Trump violated the Constitution by profiting from business deals with foreign governments. The plaintiffs include Maryland’s entire federal delegation: Senator Cardin, Senator Van Hollen, Representative Cummings (MD-7), Representative Ruppersburger (MD-2), and Representative Sarbanes (MD-3).
- These lawsuits come after hotel and restaurant owners sued the president in January.
The Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill that would escalate sanctions against Russia and Iran. Senator Cardin played a major role in brokering the bipartisan legislation. Senator Van Hollen missed the vote because of a kidney stone, but tweeted that he supported the bill.
