The attorneys-general of Maryland and the District of Columbia plan to file a lawsuit yesterday alleging that foreign payments to President Donald Trump's businesses violate the U.S. constitution, according to a source familiar with the situation.
They claim the president's Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., had officials from Kuwait and Saudi Arabia stay there and thus took payments from foreign governments.
The lawsuit, first reported by The Washington Post, comes months after state lawmakers in Annapolis gave Frosh broad authority to bypass the governor and sue the federal government on a range of issues. Trump said in January that he was shifting his business assets into a trust managed by his sons to eliminate potential conflicts of interests.
The lawsuit will be filed Monday by the attorneys general of Maryland and Washington in the United States district court for the district of Maryland, the Washington Post reported.

According to a pamphlet that described the organization's policy, it is foreign governments and not Trump's businesses that are required to self-report their business dealings.
In the D.C. area, both the District and Maryland will cite ways they have been adversely affected by the opening of the Trump International Hotel a year ago near the White House. Justice Department lawyers also contended that Trump hotel revenue is no an improper payment under the Constitution.
