Lawsuit filed over Trump hotel lease

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, who are suing the Trump administration for refusing to provide information related to the lease of the Trump Hotel in Washington, Federal Times reports.

According to the report, the lawsuit accuses the acting head of the General Services Administration of violating a nearly 90-year-old law and preventing congressional oversight by not turning over the information.

The hotel, which is located in the federally-owned Old Post Office building, cost more than $1 million dollars its first two months of operation, but after Trump became president, it made a $1.97 million profit, the article notes.
