Sad Trombone – GSA Feds Say Trump DC Hotel No Ethics or Lease Violation Issues…

Political hacks and Very Fake News pundits have been trying to make Donald Trump, now President Trump’s, ownership in the Trump International DC hotel a conflict of interest.

GSA Feds today struck down those claims.

WASHINGTON (AP) β€” The federal agency overseeing Donald Trump’s lease for a luxury hotel in Washington has ruled his election as president doesn’t violate the terms of his agreement barring government officials from profiting from the property.

In a letter to the Trump Organization on Thursday, the General Services Administration says it has determined that the president’s business is in “full compliance.”

The lease for the Trump International Hotel expressly forbids any federal official from participating in the project, a $200 million renovation of a former Post Office building a few blocks from the White House. Numerous ethics experts have questioned whether Trump violated the terms of his lease the moment he took the oath of office.

President-Elect Trump transferred control of his business empire to his adult children.

      By July 4th, 2017, probably one of the most celebrated Independence Day ever, the liberals will mostly shut up. Like a bunch of squeaking chickens, they will suddenly stop and wonder what heck they are squeaking about.

    Sorry, burst out laughing at that line. I never knew we had so many, and where the heck were they the last eight years? Ethics experts my potootie. Now that’s funny.

    Sorry, our President handed it over to his adult children, nothing wrong with that. What a bloody waste of time and money.

      A hat trick of success:

      3) Maxine Waters unhappy.

      I really enjoy the impeachment talk. The Dems don’t have the votes to prefer charges let alone vote to impeach. It will take them 2 years at least to elect people that will vote for impeachment.That’s if they ever figure out how to be American enough to get those votes. How did Bill Clinton’s impeachment work out for the Republicans?
      Then, let’s say in two years they get the votes. President Trump could resign before the vote, let Pence go at it for two years and then run again, essentially getting 2Β½ terms with Pence getting two years. These people are delusional.
      Reminds me of Congressman Hank Johnson thinking Guam might tip over if too many troops and their families are stationed there.

        Depends on the Republicans. I applauded them for the effort. Suborning perjury is a big deal for a president, even if done when not president. How could we trust him? Running Bod Dole didn’t help. [A bit of a story. Many years ago, I attended a conference held at the Watergate. Yes, *that* Watergate. It was a nice, if older, hotel. It had a condominium complex nearby. Guess who I saw while there. Yes a prominent and former wounded warrior, who owned one of the condominium’s units. Guess what the big scandal of the day was.]

            I thought it was clear. They had the guts to do what needed to be done when a President acts badly. That they failed said more about the electorate at the time. It didn’t hurt them that badly. The rest of it was about the GOPe and their substandard candidates who’s campaigns are poorly run. The Ds will walk their talk and not care about ‘losing’ in the state-owned media.

    What is this idiocy raised by these liberal retards? Why don’t these retards just shut up? These retards are against everything that the rest of us hold dearly and they are against every reasons why our country was founded. I can never understand how these retards would claim that they love socialism and communism but they never live a single minute of their life in these systems while other have and denounced it in every possible ways Our President is trying very hard to create jobs, even for you retards if you are willing to work for a living. Instead of looting and destroying every thing that other have produced, you retards should try to work and make an honest wage like the rest of us.

    They constantly look for any minor infraction from DJT to drum up into a big deal whilst they totally ignored all the malfeasance committed by, and most likely gotten away with, by the Clintons, zero, and all the various enablers, sycophants, and assorted other treasonous bastards for the last quarter century and more. All the while ignoring the wishes of the majority and trashing everything we hold dear.
