Watchdog: GSA ignored clause of Constitution on gifts with Trump hotel lease


January 17, 2019

In a 47-page report, GSA watchdog Carol F. Ochoa concluded that the "president's business interest" in the Trump International Hotel at the Old Post Office building site in Washington raised emoluments issues that "might cause a breach of lease."
