With Democrats ramping up investigations into President Donald Trump given their new majority in the House of Representatives, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) claimed she had “long thought” the president as a real estate developer had violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
“I have thought for a very long time that the President, as a real estate developer, had violated what’s called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act,” Speier told CNN “New Day” host John Berman on Thursday. “It is a requirement that anyone doing business with a foreign entity make sure that none of the money that comes into a project has been laundered.”
Speier added that she is focusing on three projects: the Toronto project, the Soho project and the Panama project.
“All Trump hotels, all of which went belly up at a time particularly in the Toronto project where not one other high rise property was bankrupted. But the Trump property was,” she explained.
