President Trump's inauguration committee was reportedly charged a rate of $175,000 per day to use event space at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., despite internal objections at the Trump Organization that the rates were too high.

A WNYC/ProPublica investigation published Friday reports that a spokesman confirmed the rate paid by the nonprofit inaugural committee, headed by Tom Barrack, which also reportedly spent $1.5 million at a hotel in which Barrack owns a small stake.
This is twice what professional event planners told the Trump people the appropriate rate was. And a good part of this went right into President Emolument's pockets.
