House Dems To Probe Trump's Push To Host Summit At His Resort | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1

 

The House Judiciary Committee has announced they will investigate Trump’s push for his Doral property to host the G-7 summit, saying “the President's personal financial interests” are “shaping decisions about official U.S. government activities.” Former Republican Chief White House Ethics Lawyer, Richard Painter, says Congress is overdue in investigating the “illegal, unconstitutional emoluments” Trump is “receiving from foreign governments.”

  1. What’s to investigate? Trump, like always, proudly abuses his power to push for contracts and policies that will personally enrich him. What else is there to know before we remove this corrupt clown?

    • His already rich you imbecile.

    • TRUMP PUSHES FOR CONTRACTS AND POLICIES, THAT THE REPUBLICANS AND THE SENATE WANT HIM TO PUSH FOR …. AND YOU’RE RIGHT WHO REALLY NEEDS TO INVESTIGATE, TRUMP DOES IT RIGHT TO OUR FACES AND THEN LIES ABOUT IT, THIS IS WHAT IS TO BE “EXPECTED FROM THE FAKE-CONVERTS”, …. “LIES, CRAFTY COUNCIL AGAINST ALL BROWN PEOPLE, CORRUPTNESS IN THE NAME OF THE UNITED STATES, THEFT OF ALL OF THE UNITED STATES
      RULES AND SO-CALLED JUST LAWS AND INSTITUTIONS…. IS THE ONLY THING THESE PEOPLE ARE ABOUT, AND NOW YOU’RE FINDING THIS TO BE THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.

    • “TRUMP IS TRYING TO “BERNIE MADDOFF” THE ENTIRE COUNTRY WITH HIS AND THE REPUBLICAN’S AS WELL AS THE SENATE, ELABORATE” PONZI SCHEME”, AND MOST OF YOU DIDN’T EVEN RECOGNIZE IT FOR WHAT IT WAS AND IS, AND DIDN’T EVEN SEE IT COMING AT ALL, WELL HERE IT IS, FACE-TO-FACE, RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU…… SO NOW WHAT. ????

    • @Debra Turner
      Agree!
      Do you know that comments in all caps is yelling? If you meant to “yell” I understand anger, frustration and needing to vent

  2. And full of BED BUGS!

  3. Quit investigating and start impeaching or moving forward on the 25th amendment. Time to Flush the Orange Floater!

    Lock him up, now!

  5. What more does Trump have to do?

  6. Madison Marshall | August 29, 2019 at 3:06 PM | Reply

    If I was a G6 leader I would politely decline trumps invitation and plan the meeting in another country.

    • Madison Marshall the way Trump treats them I wouldn’t be surprised if they did decline.

    • Hurricanes? In Florida? Surely not! Fake News!

    • THE REPUBLICANS ARE TOO BUSY “PLAYING THE COWARDS”, WHICH THEY ARE NOT, THEY ARE FOR EVERYTHING THAT TRUMP IS “IMPOSING UPON THE UNITED STATES AND IT’S CITIZENS, AND THEY ARE JUST TOO COWARDLY TO SAY SO, INSTEAD THEY TRY AND MAKE YOU BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE “AFRAID OF TRUMP. THE VERY MAN THEY MADE SURE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE SELECT AS POTUS OF THE USA…., COME ONE PEOPLE YOU ARE WAY BETTER THAN THAT, NOT TO BE ABLE TO SEE RIGHT THROUGH THE REPUBLICANS AND THE SENATE. !!!!

    • It is a G 6 1/2 only.

  7. USA does not have a president. But instead, a dictator supported by his GOP .

    • @Mister Elling I would say the same of Fox News, except it is registered with the FCC as an entertainment program, and therefor, does not qualify as ANY kind of news. If you don’t believe me, go the the FCC website and check. It’ll take less than 2 minutes, and you can try to prove me wrong…

    • AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU NOW HAVE.

    • Martha Soledad | August 30, 2019 at 1:39 AM | Reply

      @Kathleen Dunlap Oh my ! 😱 did I hit a bad nerve. Go take ur pills girl. And chill down pendeja.

    • @Mister Elling. You poor gullible fool.

  8. Don’t forget to investigate the report that the Attorney General is throwing a big party at one of Trump’s rat infested properties.

    • @Deidera Williams ewww true!

    • tRumpet troll Killer | August 29, 2019 at 6:38 PM | Reply

      Thomas Fletcher palmettos are Giant flying cockroaches but I have been to dozens of resorts in Florida and I have rarely seen one in any that have regular pest control!

      You generally see them around the old style vapor lighting that allot of the older gas station use or in homes or apartments that don’t have regular pest control

    • Christian Davis | August 29, 2019 at 8:28 PM | Reply

      Don’t forget the bedbugs too.

    • D1Nonly1 4ever | August 29, 2019 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      all Trump properties are big rat traps and bed bug infested.p

  9. Presidential PROFITEERING is against the LAW…..Trump is just a CRIMINAL and TRAITOR and Scammer……

  10. Once again, imagine if President Obama had tried something like this. Trump and his crime family are grifting like no one’s watching. A smash and grab is basically what Trump’s presidency is all about.

  11. Trump is the most disgusting piece of human trash there is. REMOVE this maniac from office Congress!!

  12. But Putin has told Moscow Mitch to cover for lying Don.

    • keyboyrecords | August 29, 2019 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      Those Russian sanctioned nerve agent attacks in London are warnings to Mitch and the rest of the gang that they too can be touched.

    • REPUBLICANS HAVE TOLD TRUMP TO COVER FOR LYING DON AS WELL AS THE SENATE, AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT.

  13. It doesn’t even matter if he hosts the summit for free. He will still benefit from adjacent revenue, increased exposure, and elevated prestige from hosting the summit at his resort.

  14. What’s to investigate. He stood at the G7 podium and solicited his resort in front of the world. Fn impeach him already. He clearly does not want to he president.

    • Vivian Perino | August 29, 2019 at 4:20 PM | Reply

      Cindy Yeager …Google Prof Richard Painter, Univ of Minnesota Law School ….he’s got the goods on Trump!

    • That’s alright, nobody else wants him to be President,only a prison inmate.He can be President of his cell block.

    • enigmaticmisfit | August 29, 2019 at 4:52 PM | Reply

      Yes. He breached the “international emolument clause” and the “domestic emolument clause” although I highly doubt any of his supporters even know what they are.

    • @enigmaticmisfit Unless it’s something found in a trailer part, they don’t.

  15. Good for Richard Painter, telling it like it is.

    • He’ll just have to retract this in a few days like his buddy Lawrence

    • What may be the worst thing is that more Republicans, in office or not, aren’t willing to do the exact same thing.
      The country is quickly becoming a sh_thole country, now is your chance to do something about the Congress.

    Impeach this felon already!

    • Naomi Frederick | August 29, 2019 at 8:27 PM | Reply

      Impeach this effing grifter!!
      I am so angry.

    • @Naomi Frederick Not going to happen. As long as Mitch McConnell and Bill Barr are willing to crap on the constitution to protect him, trump can do whatever he wants. The only thing we can do about it is VOTE

  17. George Rigberg | August 29, 2019 at 3:21 PM | Reply

    There’s nothing to investigate, I can see emoluments violation from here. AND NOT THE FIRST TIME!!

    • @brian gardner you’re a moron calling ppl moron like it’ll make you any less absurd, all of history and decency will disagree with you long after youre dead

    • @enigmaticmisfit exactly ppl who think legal racism is fine and dont ever read want to tell us what trump is doing is legal..big hint there

    • You see what u wanna see

    • @brian gardner Before you start criticizing others, perhaps you should learn to spell, and how to put a sentence together correctly. Moron😲.

  18. During the campaign, Trump announced that if he’s elected President, he would virtually eliminate what he referred to as the “FDA Food Police” that are charged with protecting the food we all consume in this country. And when you consider that Trump restaurants have been repeatedly caught serving dirty, roach-infested, and even deadly food over the years, that’s not the least bit surprising.

    In 1990, Thomas Purgatorio dined at Buffet by the Sea in Trump’s Castle Hotel and Casino. Four months later, Purgatorio was dead of organ failure brought about by eating “salmonella-tainted mousse.”

    Purgatorio’s widow later filed an $11 million lawsuit against Trump’s Castle, and the suit was settled for a fraction of the original amount. Attorneys for Trump argued that Mr. Purgatorio’s death was the result of a pre-existing heart condition. And Trump attorney Alan Kaplan said that eggs in the mousse caused the salmonella. Yet such matters are exactly the kind of thing the FDA seeks to prevent.

    For decades, restaurants owned by Trump have been repeatedly cited for violations which include serving month-old caviar, expired veal stock and yogurt, and eggs, cream and sausages that had been stored at unsafe temperatures.

    In 1992, Trump properties in Atlantic City had “the worst track record for food-related health problems among Atlantic City’s 12 casinos.” That included five salmonella outbreaks which dated back as far as 1984. At the time, a city health inspector noted:

    “We find it highly unusual that most of our problems in Atlantic City have been associated with the Trump properties. The physical part of the establishments is top-of-the-line, but it all boils down to extremely poor food handling.”

    Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida was cited 78 times over three years for health code violations including cooking staff not washing their hands and the “accumulation of black/green mold-like substance” on an ice machine.😲

    In February, the Trump Tower Grille in Trump’s signature Manhattan property was reported for “live mice” and other health code violations.

    New York City health inspectors visited the restaurant on 11 July 2018 and found “evidence of mice or live mice” in and around the kitchen, a violation of sanitary standards that was deemed to be “critical”.
    The inspectors also found the restaurant to be “not vermin-proof” and said it was “conducive to attracting vermin” and “allowing vermin to exist”.

    The New York Daily News reported that the Trump Tower restaurant has been cited for health code violations in each of the past five years, including sightings of “live roaches” in 2016 and “filth flies” in 2017

    The G6+1 should REFUSE to stay at a trump owned property!

    • They most likely would. Our PM has already declined if that’s where it will be held. drumpf couldn’t have searched for a place very hard, because Camp David was built for these kinds of summits.

    • SkyGemini Search? You think that lazy, selfish p.o.s. would spend any of his “executive time” doing something productive? You sure are optimistic!
