(Before It's News)

Back in December the Democrats and a lot of NeverTrump GOPers decided that it was improper and/or illegal for Donald Trump to maintain an ownership stake in his DC hotel located in the Old Post Office building. This is about as petty as it gets but undeterred by scruple, the Democrats went as far as to manufacture a conversation with the deputy commissioner of the GSA in which he agreed with them. This whole thing has been a nothingburger since its inception. It would have taken a moderately sober real estate attorney about fifteen minutes to fix the LLC articles to make Trump completely compliant even had he been out of compliance.

This is exactly what happened

Here are the changes made, per GSA letter to Trump Old Post Office LLC:

And now the GSA has ruled that his stake in the hotel is completely legit.

GSA, noting changes made to Trump DC hotel operations, determines Trump being POTUS doesn’t violate lease provision:

The whole letter is here:

Everyone would be happy if the real goal of the complaint was to ensure compliance with the law. But that was never the real objective. None of this changes anything. The people opposed to Trump will pivot from the GSA being loyal and professional civil servants carrying out the law without fear or favor (like those at the EPA) to crooks:

@AP GSA? One of the only agencies that got a funding increase in Trump budget. Funny coincidence.

And the anti-Trump outrage goes on and on.
