Regrettably, the Republicans who control Congress have decided they have no obligation to hold presidents of their own party accountable.

In a hopeful sign, a restaurant in Washington, Cork Wine Bar, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Mr. Trump’s hotel, located in a building owned by the government.

The plaintiffs want Mr. Trump to resign, sell the hotel or shut it down while he is president.
