Calling Leslie Rutledge: A good suit to join


Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has joined countless lawsuits around the country claiming high public interest in protecting polluters, suppressing votes, discriminating against sexual minorities and so on.

Here's one she hasn't signed onto yet, but it looks like a winner.

Attorneys general for the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland say they will sue President Trump on Monday, alleging that he has violated anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution by accepting millions in payments and benefits from foreign governments since moving into the White House.

The lawsuit, the first of its kind brought by government entities, centers on the fact that Trump chose to retain ownership of his company when he became president. Trump said in January that he was shifting his business assets into a trust managed by his sons to eliminate potential conflicts of interests.
What say, Gen. Rutledge? Care to crank out an amicus on this one?
