(TheRedWire.com) – The Supreme Court is set to make a decision on whether they are going to be looking into a case that could potentially allow Democratic lawmakers to gain access to documents related to former President Trump’s former D.C. hotel. During the Trump administration the hotel, which was only a few blocks from the White House, became a frequent meeting place for GOP power players.
The Democratic lawmakers filed the lawsuit in 2017 after requests from the General Services Administration (GSA) for a number of financial records that relate to Trump’s hotel in the Old Post Office Pavilion, which is owned by the federal government.
The lawmakers have claimed that the former President was able to hide a large amount of debt during the GSA’s initial bidding process. They have also stated that there are concerns over possible conflicts of interest related to Trump serving as president and simultaneously doing business with foreign governments who stayed at the hotel.
The Supreme Court is going to be considering the case during a closed-door conference on Friday. The court is then going to be deciding whether or not they are going to be looking further into the case. A final decision on this is going to be announced on Monday. If the court decides to hear the case, they will not hear it until the next term. Four of the nine justices will need to agree in order for the case to be taken up. Three of the justices in the Supreme Court right now were nominated by former President Trump.
