A group of four Republican lawmakers on Monday criticized an inspector general for a report issued last month concluding that the General Services Administration had neglected to consider all relevant legal issues when it approved President Trump’s special arrangement retaining his company’s lease for its Washington luxury hotel. The unusual letter to GSA watchdog Carol Ochoa demanding internal documents was signed by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, joined by House Oversight and Reform Ranking Member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Reps. Sam Graves, R-Mo., and Mark Meadows, R-N.C. Top Democrats on oversight panels were copied.
