The oversight panelís investigation is part of a broader inquiry into military spending at and around the Scotland property, according to Politico. The committee said in a letter to the Pentagon in June that the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport, the closest airport to Trump Turnberry, since October 2017 even though the fuel would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base.

It'll take years to ferret out all the ways Trump is profiting from his office - corruption at its finest. I truly wonder if his supporters are actually getting the gains they think after taking into consideration all the grift filling Trump's pockets. The joke's on all of us as he's laughing on the way to the bank.

From what I am led to believe the US Air Force uses Lakenheath and Mildenhall, however private contractors and US Special Forces use Prestwick.

Scottish Government-owned Prestwick Airport paid £9m by Trump administration - The Scotsman (2019)

Prestwick also has a long history of ise by the US, it was used during the War on Terror when Gerorge W, Bush was President.

Prestwick was also linked to CIA extrodinary rendition flights.

They also stayed at Trump Turnberry resort. The resort lost $4.5 million in 2017 & revenue went up $3 million in 2018. If in fact our military has helped this resort (remember Pence's Ireland visit) it takes this profiting while in office to an entire new level.
I fully expect an inquiry into to this to be blocked.
If this is truly going on, this guy & his cronies shouldn't just be tossed out of office, they should go to jail.

He certainly is bad, by any objective standards of reality. But I seriously doubt that he has the mental capacity to be the mastermind of anything at all.

Everyone knows Trump steers govt business to his properties to fatten his personal wallet, and I guess in this new age of zero principles we are good with the kinds of things.
