House Democrats probe use of taxpayer money at Trump hotels

House Democrats probe use of taxpayer money at Trump hotels”

Pence stayed at Trump's hotel in Doonbeg when he recently visited Ireland.

A more formal investigation could strengthen separate committee lawsuits seeking federal court orders to access Mueller grand jury material and compel testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn.

The chairmen also asked in their letters about Trump's repeated pitches - publicly and in meetings with foreign leaders - to hold the next G-7 meeting at his Trump National Doral resort near Miami, which they allege could also constitute emoluments violations. The Democrats say those instances, among others, could violate the Constitution's emoluments clause, which bans the president from taking gifts from foreign governments. He argued that the venue is a logical host because of its spacious accommodations and proximity to Miami International Airport.

The House Judiciary Committee has taken several steps in recent weeks that could lead to high-profile hearings, but it's still not clear if those hearings will materialize before the end of the year - when House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a Democrat from NY, says he hopes to decide whether to bring forward articles of impeachment.

House Democrats' subpoenas have been routinely dismissed by the White House, complicating their efforts to get information but potentially giving fodder to their argument that the President is flouting the law. The committee did not issue subpoenas on Friday as part of the investigation though a congressional source said the committee is "looking at next steps" if the White House doesn't respond. That caution stems from polling that suggests the general public does not support ousting Trump, even as most Democrats do.

Lichtman noted that the real damage from an impeachment inquiry comes from "public hearings" and "a public trial in the Senate in which House prosecutors present evidence, present documents, make opening and closing statements". You know, I think it's important for us to think about what is in the best interest of the country and the American people, and continuing to pursue impeachment is something that I think will only further to tear our country apart. "He made it very clear that he was advertising his resort".

The parliamentarians are to produce the document for consideration of the Legal Committee on the next week.

The Democratic-led US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, criticised for an unorthodox impeachment probe of President Donald Trump, is poised to vote next week on a resolution to formalise the investigation, a person familiar with the matter said yesterday.

Trump hasn't said explicitly that he wants to host the 2020 G-7 Summit at Trump National Doral, though the White House tweeted a video on August 26 with the caption "President @realDonaldTrump shares the location of the next @G7 summit, hosted by the United States!"

The Doral golf resort has seen business decline since Trump ran for president, with the PGA Tour canceling a tournament.
