Trump's Doral resort was a last-minute addition in search for G-7 site, newly released email shows

Source: WaPo

Secret Service agents had identified four U.S. sites as finalists for next year’s Group of Seven summit — but then they were told to add a new finalist: President Trump’s Doral resort, according to an internal Secret Service email released late Friday.

“Our original itinerary included Hawaii, Utah, California and North Carolina,” a Secret Service official wrote, describing a trip that a team of Secret Service personnel took in July to examine the finalists. “By departure, they had already cut two (California and North Carolina) and added Miami on the back end.”

“Miami” meant President Trump’s resort near the Miami airport, which hadn’t been among the original 10 sites that the Secret Service team had vetted. Although vetting of possible sites had begun in late May, the official wrote on July 12 that “yesterday was the first time we put eyes on this [Doral] property.”

The official’s email was released to the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which made a public-records request and then sued when government agencies did not comply.

2. Bedbugs . . . Itch . . . Scratch . . . Scratch

When the RNC meets there next maybe the bugs will be very hungry. That would be a shame.

4. There's a paper trail for everything.

This administration is just too stupid to know that.

6. What search?

I want to see the data listing all the site choices, and the scoring points.

Just how many extra points are bedbugs given?

There was no serious search. The turd had already selected the bowl he wanted to play ruler of the G7 in, AND he thought he could make a killing off of it financially, they did not feel a need to justify it.
