REPORT: Donald Trump set to face two lawsuits after being accused of violating the US constitution

According to reports, the attorneys general of both Maryland and the District of Columbia plan to open up lawsuits on the basis that Donald Trump may have violated the US constitution for accepting foreign payments.

The Lawsuit revolves around the fact that the President chose to keep ownership of his company despite becoming President. Trump announced in January that he was placing his sons in charge of his business assets to avoid any conflicts of interest.

Despite this, Eric Trump has said that the President continues to receive regular updates about his Company’s financial health.

The lawsuit is being brought forward by D.C Attorney General Karl A.Racine and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh.

If the case is allowed to proceed both Racine and Frosh will demand copies of Trump’s personal tax returns to detail the extent of his foreign dealings.
