The House Judiciary Committee is adding President Donald Trump's recent proposal to hold the 2020 G-7 summit at one of his properties to its impeachment investigation.

In a statement, Chairman Jerry Nadler and Rep. Steve Cohen said holding the 2020 G-7 summit at Trump National Doral Miami, as the president reportedly suggested, would implicate "both the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses, because it would entail both foreign and U.S. government spending to benefit the President."

They also wrote: "The House Judiciary Committee is examining allegations of obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by the President as part of its impeachment investigation. ... The Committee will broaden its ongoing investigation to include these latest revelations."

According to the Washington Post, the president mentioned his interest in hosting the next G-7 summit at his Doral property at the end of this year's summit in Biarritz, France.
