Trump DC Hotel Filings Mysteriously Disappear After Being Published On Government Website
A new report revealed that the General Services Administration, which handles Trump’s contract with the government to rent the Old Post Office Pavillion where his DC hotel is housed, posted Donald Trump’s DC hotel filings on their website and then it was immediately removed due to an error.
“The documents were posted inadvertently and have been removed from our website,” GSA press secretary Pamela A. Dixon said in an email to the Washington Post.
The information posted showed the hotel’s finances from February all the way to April of this year.
This information shows just how much Trump is actually benefiting from his DC hotel. Back in December, before taking office, Trump announced that he would not be divesting from his businesses, but instead he would leave it for his two older sons to take care of.
Many thought that would cause conflicts of interest, as Trump has already seen profits from more people staying at the Trump Hotel in DC.
One such ethics concern stemmed from a fundraiser Trump held at his own hotel earlier this year.
Even his supporters “are expecting transparency and accountability and a commitment to have the government finally let the public know what it’s up to, without too much of a hassle,” Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said shortly after Trump was elected.
