The House Oversight committee discovered that the Trump Organization charged the secret service expensive hotel rates to protect the first family.

When Trump was president, he often traveled to properties his company owned. During his travels, agents would also have to stay in rooms of those properties. Trump originally claimed that the secret service would stay at the properties for free or at a low cost. Newly found information displayed that they were being charged rates as high as nearly $1,200 per night.

The committee claimed that the Trump Organization charged the secret service well over the government rate at least 40 times. Secret service has yet to comment on the case.
