The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) will hear a case on whether Democrat lawmakers should be able to sue to obtain documents related to former President Donald Trump’s former D.C. hotel.

The move by the Supreme Court comes after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the lawmakers’ suit could move forward, according to The Hill. The Biden administration appealed to the justices and pressured them to reverse the decision over concerns about the precedent the decision would set.

The Justice Department (DOJ) has raised concerns that the decision could open presidential administrations up to more scrutiny by Congress, even by political parties not in power.

“That decision conflicts with this Court’s precedents and contradicts historical practice stretching to the beginning of the Republic. The decision also resolves exceptionally important questions of constitutional law and threatens serious harm to all three branches of the federal government. This Court should grant certiorari and reverse,” the Justice Department wrote in its request.

Democrats have accused former president Trump of hiding a significant amount of debt during the General Services Admission’s (GSA) initial bidding process for the hotel.

The GSA, which manages federal buildings and land, awarded the lease for the Old Post Office building to Trump in 2012. Trump opened the hotel in 2016 when he was the Republican nominee for president.

Democrats also raised concerns about how Trump managed potential conflicts of interest while he served as president. Lawmakers have accused Trump of conducting business with foreign entities who stayed at the hotel while they were seeking to influence U.S. foreign policy. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

The Trump Organization sold the D.C. hotel to CGI Merchant Group and its partner Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. last year. The building which previously was the Nation’s Old Post Office will be converted to a Waldorf Astoria hotel.

  1. I’m tired of the sons of bitches that want to crucify this man. They make me want to puke. I don’t know how much longer I can keep praying for these people. My rope is getting thin. Lord, help me last a while longer.

  2. We know the Democrats should not be allowed to Trump documents; they are only looking for another way to railroad President Trump again. Now that the Durham Report is out and we know that James Comey among others is dirty and corrupt and betrayed his job with political vengeance… and should be charged for his role –instead of teaching Ethics at some college! Talk about the ultimate irony; the man should be in jail. The whole Deep State bunch of them, should be indicted, tried, and jailed. That’s the only way to deter future political manipulations by government agencies that should be operating for WE THE PEOPLE.

  3. If it was me, I would investigate with a private investigator to find dirt on the democrats. The DOJ and FBI are corrupted that you would never get one prosecuted like Schiff, Sawall, and any other democrats and bring it to the people to expose their crimes. The democrats are going after Trump now and as the president. Like Hunter Biden’s laptop needs to be shared to the public.

  4. At the rate the Democrats are going, they could demand information and documentation back to when Trump was born. It is all ridiculous and definitely politically out of control. Democrats need to stop the crap in their pursuit to find anything that will stick to crucify Trump. Clowns.
