On Monday we published some explosive — and exclusive — reporting on what appears to be a case of President-elect Trump using the White House to enrich his business interests.
According to a source who contacted ThinkProgress with documentary evidence, the Ambassador of Kuwait gave into political pressure and moved a large event to the president-elect’s D.C. hotel.
It was a report that rocked the media landscape — our story was picked up by the Washington Post, Politico, Bloomberg and dozens of other outlets — and painted a dire portrait of the next administration. According to constitutional law experts on both ends of the political spectrum, the payments would constitute a violation of the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution and would likely be an impeachable offense.
