District of Columbia — In response to a push from President Donald Trump to host next year’s G-7 summit at Trump Doral Resort in Florida, the House Judiciary Committee has launched an investigation into the decision, saying that it will be included as an add-on to their current impeachment investigation. This is the first official investigation into the matter since President Trump’s push was revealed over the weekend.
The President’s property, Trump National Doral Golf Club, is being heavily pushed for by the President because of its close proximity to an airport, along with the size of the facility to accommodate world leaders and the media. The President’s push has been met with some pushback by his advisers, who have expressed concerns about conflict of interest and the President profiting from the event. If the G-7 summit is indeed selected to be the host of next years event, it could lead to a rippling effect in Washington, including an attempt at blocking the move from Congressional leaders. President Trump regularly visits his golf clubs in New Jersey and Florida during weekend visits, also using them during working vacations and even during the government shutdown last year.
