Trump’s pitch for Doral resort to host the G-7 draws scrutiny
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s pitch for his Doral golf resort in Miami as the site for next year’s Group of Seven summit will be probed as part of the House Judiciary Committee’s inquiry into potential impeachment articles.
“The committee will broaden its ongoing investigation to include these latest revelations and will take further investigative steps, including scheduling hearings and requesting additional documents from the White House,” Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Wednesday.
Nadler said holding the summit at the president’s resort would violate the Constitution’s ban on any foreign “emolument” to a president.
He said Trump’s remarks “are of significant interest ... to the committee as it considers whether to recommend articles of impeachment.”
