Federal Judge Peter J. Messitte orders evidence-gathering on lawsuit accusing President Trump of violating the US Constitution

The Trump Organization’s profits from its Trump International Hotel in Washington are at issue in a lawsuit accusing President Trump of illegally benefiting.

A federal judge in Maryland on Friday ordered evidence-gathering to begin in a lawsuit accusing President Trump of violating the Constitution by maintaining a financial interest in his company’s Washington hotel.

The plaintiffs are seeking records that could illuminate potential conflicts of interest between Mr. Trump and foreign leaders or state officials who patronize Trump International Hotel, blocks from the White House.
