Democrat lead committee requests Trump’s administration hand over details regarding talks between federal agency and his hotel company

  • A U.S. House of Representatives committee on Wednesday called on President Donald Trump’s administration to hand over details on any talks between his company and a federal agency over lease terms for a Trump-branded hotel near the White House.
  • The request was sent to the General Services Administration (GSA), which oversees leases on federally owned property.
  • The Trump Organization runs the hotel under a lease on the federally owned Old Post Office Building in Washington, just a few blocks from the White House.
  • Carolyn Maloney, the committee’s chairwoman, said, “This report highlights the disturbing conflicts of interest presented when President Trump maintains private ownership interests that place him on both sides of the federal government’s dealings.”
