U of M law professor suing Donald Trump

University of Minnesota law professor Richard Painter is suing Donald Trump over the President’s business assets.

Jim Spencer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Painter is a top ethics scholar who worked as Republican President George W. Bush’s chief ethics lawyer from 2005 to 2007. But he has picked a fight with the GOP’s latest White House resident for refusing to sell off some assets and place the rest into a blind trust, as every president has done for the past four decades. Instead, Trump has turned them over to his sons to manage and promised not to ask about them.
