District of Columbia and Maryland attorneys general sued President Trump in federal court Monday for supposedly “flagrantly violating” the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

On his radio show Monday night, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin methodically went through why their claims are “ridiculous:”

“The leftists think they’ve found a part of the Constitution they like,” Levin said in opening. Yet after Levin walks through exactly what the emoluments clause is, it becomes clear that the Constitutional understanding of the two attorneys general is seriously distorted.

Levin points out that under so broad an interpretation of the emoluments clause, even foreign sales of Barack Obama’s Dreams of My Father may very well be in violation!
