Oversight Dems Request Info From GSA on Trump Hotel

Feb 8, 2017
Press Release

Today, eight members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform sent a letter to the General Services Administration (GSA) seeking documents regarding how the GSA is addressing President Donald Trump’s apparent breach of the Old Post Office lease agreement.

GSA provided a response to a previous letter sent by Ranking Member Cummings, Rep. Peter DeFazio, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and  Reps. Gerry Connolly and André Carson.  GSA explained that it would not provide unredacted versions of the monthly reports describing revenue and expenses unless a request was made under the statutory provision known as the “Seven Member Rule” to obtain federal records from federal agencies.  This is the same process that was followed in response to a previous request.  

GSA explained in its recent letter that it is still  reviewing and evaluating information it has received to “assess its compliance with the terms and conditions of the Old Post Office lease.” In its letter, GSA explained:  “Once GSA has a full and complete understanding of the tenant’s structure, GSA will determined whether the tenant remains in compliance with the contract.”
