Trouble Knocks On Trump’s Door: Gov. Watchdog To Investigate Suspicious Activity At Mar-A-Lago

Donald Trump has made multiple trips to his Mar-A-Lago resort since taking office and it has become excessive. A U.S. government watchdog has agreed to review how classified information is kept secure at Trump’s resort.

This comes after Democrats raised concerns about the issue last month.

According to a letter made by Democratic lawmakers, the Government Accountability Office’s review will be examining multiple things. First, they will be checking whether Secret Service agents subject Mar-a-Lago guests to any security screening. And secondly, they will evaluate the expenses incurred by government employees who travel with Trump to Mar-a-Lago.

Trump’s lawyer had made a promise on January 11th during a news conference that Trump would be donating Trump Hotel profits from foreign governments to the Treasury. And so the GAO will also be investigating to see if Trump has made any payments to the U.S. Treasury from profits at his hotels.

A bill was introduced Friday by Sens. Tom Udall (N.M.), Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), Tom Carper (Del.) and Jack Reed (R.I.) called Make Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act — or MAR-A-LAGO Act.

The bill would require the White House to publish logs of people who meet with Trump there and at other locations.

The GAO is expected to begin the review in a few months.
