Biden administration gives House panel documents related to Trump hotel

Source: CNN

The General Services Administration has provided House Democrats with documents related to former President Donald Trump's Washington hotel, in the second case this week where the Biden administration gave the House information that the Trump administration had blocked it from obtaining.

The Biden administration revealed in a court filing on Friday that the House committee had asked for the records and the GSA had turned over some of them last week.

House Transportation Chairman Peter DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat, requested a slew of records in March related to the Trump International Hotel lease of the Old Post Office Building, which is not far from the White House. It was a request he had resubmitted to the GSA after it had been blocked by the Trump administration.

The GSA responded in a letter to DeFazio last week that it was turning over some of the requested records, including monthly financial statements from the Trump hotel, audits and lease amendments -- though the GSA declined to provide legal memorandums, arguing that those records were part of "internal executive branch legal advice." The letter from the GSA said it was still working to fulfill DeFazio's request for memos and communications from the White House or other federal agencies related to the lease of the Old Post Office Building.

2. This is the main reason trump so badly wanted to win.

He does not care about governing. But staying out of jail or losing his paper empire.

4. That is what I've been saying all along.

He could give a damn about the responsibilities and duties of the office, his primary and secondary concerns were (a) staying out of jail and (b) making money from the office.

9. This is why he showed himself to be a COMPLETE FUCKING IMBECILE...

He could have stayed in NYC, continued to rip off contractors, committed tax fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, underage sex trafficking, lawsuits up the wazoo......

BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He JUST HAD TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT. All because the black guy made a fool of him at a dinner.

Then, with Putins help, stole the election. Thought he was king of the world. Only he's too fucking stupid to understand that as an elected official, he's now subject to the rule of law. And will pay the consequences of his criminal behavior and treason.

WHAT A FUCKING MORON.
