Trump Organization Subpoenaed in Emoluments Clause Lawsuit

HeadlineDec 05, 2018

The attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Maryland have sent subpoenas to the Trump Organization for financial documents relating to President Trump’s business interests. Subpoenas were also sent to the state of Maine and five federal agencies. The Trump Organization is accused of violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by receiving payments from foreign governments through the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and other establishments around the world.
Editor’s Note: This headline has been corrected to reflect that Maine and the five federal agencies have been subpoenaed–they did not issue subpoenas.
