“President Trump continues to directly benefit from the Trump International Hotel, in violation of the lease agreement,” said the report initiated by Ranking Member Rep. Peter Defazio, D-Ore., and Hank Johnson, D-Ga., both on the panel’s Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management Subcommittee.
U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) agrees. “Right-wing paramilitary groups continue to terrorize and continue to murder labor and human rights activists,” says Johnson, a staunch advocate for Afro-Colombians. “Basic rule of law processes are still not in place.”
In addition, Congressman Hank Johnson, Ranking Member of the Transportation and Infrastructure, drafted a resolution to force the General Service Administration to produce documents related to a 60-year lease agreement for the Trump Organization to develop the iconic Old Post Office building in Washington.

“Although GSA and the Trump Old Post Office LLC have claimed the president is not benefiting from the lease, he’s clearly benefitting from the lease,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.). “The president has listed the loan he took from Deutsche Bank to renovate the Old Post Office Building as a personal liability."
