  • Trump Has Reportedly Now Spent 30% of His Presidency At Trump Resorts

As they head into a critical fall session, Democrats say they will also focus heavily on questions over whether the President is enriching himself while violating the emoluments clause in the Constitution, reports Trump dangled pardons to officials who were at risk of breaking immigration laws and his involvement in hush-money payments to over his alleged extramarital affairs - all of which could form articles of impeachment against the President, according to lawmakers and aides involved in the effort.

Similar letters were sent to acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney; Secret Service Director James Murray; and Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg.

Powerful House Democrats said Friday they need to know how much Vice President Mike Pence's stay at President Trump's Irish resort cost taxpayers, signaling they will dig deep into Mr. Trump's decision to flaunt his personal businesses while serving in the White House.

The chairman characterized Mr. Trump's promotion of Doral as a watershed moment, saying the president appeared to be requiring foreign governments to spend money at his resort to engage in global negotiations.

Sources familiar with the vote have framed it as the first formal step on the road to possibly impeaching Trump.

The committee's vote is expected to take place on Wednesday.

The Democrats describe Pence's visit, and the possibility that next year's Group of Seven summit will be held at Trump's Miami-area Doral golf resort, as corrupting the presidency.

The request for documents included any communications about the decision making for where to host the next G-7 summit, including between the White House and the Secret Service and the White House and the State Department.

Sources told CNN on Friday that the resolution is expected to spell out that Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, has the authority to call hearings at either the full committee or subcommittee level in connection with its impeachment deliberations.

Both Democrats have given a September 19 date for documents to be turned over. That caution stems from polling that suggests the general public does not support ousting Trump, even as most Democrats do.

The Doral golf resort has seen business decline since Trump ran for president, with the PGA Tour canceling a tournament.

In addition to looking at Trump's use of his properties, two House committees are continuing to investigate his relationship with banks with which he did business. "Each country can have their own villa, or their own bungalow". The Secret Service has had the most hard time managing this sensitive "emoluments" issue, as they must both protect the president and house their agents at his resort, or wherever the president stays.

But Pelosi and her leadership have continued to frame Judiciary's actions as one part of a broader investigation into the president.
