House panel probes fortunes of airport near Trump resort in Scotland

He also said the Air Force had not found anything improper regarding the Trump Turnberry stay but is still reviewing the records.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee said that the expenditure at the Prestwick airport has "increased substantially" since Trump came into office, the BBC reported.

The House Oversight Committee is trying to find out why a C-17 military transport plane carrying supplies in the spring from the USA to Kuwait stopped at President Trump's resort in Scotland.

"In this case, they made reservations through the Defense Travel System and used the closest available and least expensive accommodations to the airfield within the crews' allowable hotel rates", Thomas continued.

The June letter reveals concerns that USA military spending at Prestwick - the closest airport to Trump's resort - appears to have "increased substantially since the election".

"The President is corrupt and must be impeached", the New York Democrat tweeted Friday night in response to the story, which was broken by reporters Natasha Bertrand and Bryan Bender.

Jamie Raskin, both Maryland Democrats, sent a letter to the Defense Department's acting secretary, Patrick Shanahan, in June asking for all travel information pertaining to Pentagon personnel through the Glasgow Prestwick Airport, as well as visits to the Trump Turnberry golf resort.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

On previous trips to the Middle East, the C-17 landed at USA air bases in Germany, Spain, the Azores, and Italy to refuel, one person familiar with the trips said, but never in Glasgow, which is a commercial airport, meaning fuel is more expensive.

It follows reports of the airport offering "cut-price rooms for select passengers and crew", along with free rounds of golf at Turnberry for USA military staff and civilian air crews.

The inquiry is part of a broader, previously unreported probe into USA military expenditures at and around the Trump property in Scotland.

But the Protection Division has refused to comply with investigators' requests to date, a senior Democratic committee aide instructed CNN on Friday. Gen. Ed Thomas mentioned in a press release of the cease that included a keep for crew members on the Trump resort.

The House Oversight letter, mentioning the Washington Post, says declines at Trump's Scottish hotel amounted to $4.5 million in 2017.

However, the spending has also raised questions over whether Trump's golf resort is benefiting from the U.S. military activity in the area.
