Trump's hotel opening was illegal

Alternet - In the first presidential debate, Donald Trump spent a minute pitching his newest hotel in Washington across from the White House, saying the hotel that opened two weeks earlier was done "under-budget," “ahead of schedule” and that’s how he would run America.

But when it opened on Monday, September 12, it was after an all-weekend scramble by contractors and the hotel did not even have a standard “certificate of occupancy,” permit allowing visitors to enter the premises, according to a series of e-mails between the federal issuing agency and Trump’s management obtained this week under a federal Freedom of Information Act request by the Partnership For Civil Justice Fund.
