JUDGE ALLOWS LAWSUIT ALLEGING TRUMP TOOK ILLEGAL FOREIGN GIFTS

A federal judge ruled that the District of Columbia and Maryland may proceed with a lawsuit against President Trump alleging that Trump’s business dealings have violated the Constitution’s ban on receiving improper  “emoluments,” or payments, from individual states and foreign governments.

The judge rejected the appeal of the Justice Department, which is representing the president in this case. The ruling means that an investigation might be launched on financial records of Trump’s companies in Maryland and Washington DC and payments made by foreign officials to influence Trump administration.
