The General Services Administration would have refused to provide information about the Trump International Hotel since January to the committee in which the delegates have a seat. The service was then mandatory, they found politicians.

'We have no transparency. No possibility to check for any conflict of interest or unconstitutional foreign payments, 'said Elijah Cummings, a member of parliament. He also wants clarification as to why Trump may be involved in the lease of the property.

The luxury hotel is located in a government building, which, according to critics, makes Trump virtually both the tenant and the landlord. Chosen directors may not lease federal real estate in the US. A GSA spokeswoman did not want to react because the legal conflict is still ongoing.

The Democrats also claim that the GSA did just pass documents about the hotel when Barack Obama was still president. Trump has transferred control over his business to his sons. This must prevent conflicts of interest, but according to opponents, that step is not far enough.
