Wednesday evening on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed one of the Left’s latest erroneous pseudo-constitutional plans of attack against President Trump. The attack comes from the activist attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Trump’s business dealings are the subject of a new lawsuit that has to do with the Constitution’s emolument’s clause. When foreign officials stay at the hotel, the argument of the attorneys general goes, Trump receives unconstitutional payments from foreign governments.

The emoluments clause, Levin explained, was originally included in the Constitution to keep people from seeking office as a stepping stone to more lucrative ventures. Levin argued that since Trump owned the hotel before taking office, the clause does not apply to him.

“So now we have another tool that will apparently be used by the Left – and if they can find these Clinton and Obama judges – to try and destroy the Trump presidency,” the host concluded.
