Trump’s pitch for Do­ral re­sort to host the G-7 draws scru­tiny

The Morning Call - - NATION & WORLD -

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.”
