Frosh talks legal action against Trump, EPA during Salisbury visit.

'Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh's job is to fight corruption and protect the state’s citizens.

Some of what the office does get little notice, but a recent federal lawsuit alleging President Trump’s business dealings are violations of the Constitution’s foreign and domestic emoluments clauses gained Frosh national attention.

“It’s our country’s original anti-corruption law,” he said in an interview with The Daily Times during a recent visit to Salisbury. . .

Frosh, a Democrat serving his first term as attorney general, also has gone after the federal Environmental Protection Agency, which he believes is being dismantled under the leadership of Administrator Scott Pruitt, leading to “an assault on clean air and clean water.”

In June, Frosh joined a coalition of 14 attorneys general and the city of Chicago in filing a motion in the U.S. Court of Appeals to intervene in a lawsuit against Pruitt’s actions to halt regulation of leaks of greenhouse gas emissions and other harmful air pollutants from new sources in the oil and gas industry.'>>>
