Attorney General William Barr has booked President Donald Trump's hotel in Washington, DC for a holiday party that is likely to cost more than $ 30,000.

The December event will have 200 guests and was reserved last month, according to the Washington Post.

Barr signed a contract for a Family Holiday Party in the hotel's Presidential Ballroom, with a buffet and an open bar of four hours for his annual festive bash.

Allegedly he has to pay $ 4,500 to rent the ballroom – which was designed by Ivanka Trump before coming to her father in the White House – and spend at least $ 135 per person on food and drink.

Barr allegedly paid for the occasion and chose the location after first contacting other hotels, including the Willard and the Mayflower, and finding that they had been booked, according to a Justice Department official.

The official added that the purpose of Barr & # 39; s party was not to earn favor with the president.

Allegedly, prior to his decision, he consulted career ethics officials, who told him that his actions do not violate ethical rules.

Walter Shaub, a former director of the Office of Government Ethics, said that Barr who books the hotel at Trump is one of those things that doesn't violate the rules, but it's really disturbing.

& # 39; He continues to send out signals that his loyalty is to a politician and not to the country, & # 39; Shaub said. & # 39; And it is part of a continuous erosion of credibility at the Ministry of Justice. & # 39;

Barr's movement is the final overlap between Trump's administration and his company, which he still benefits financially, despite no longer managing it.

When Trump was in France this week for the G7 summit, Trump invited the kickback after proposing his golf resort in the Miami area as the location for next year's meeting.

The president devoted part of Monday's press conference to a sales pitch for his Trump National Doral Miami Golf Resort, boasting about the series of beautiful buildings. We call them bungalows. They each have 50 to 70 very luxurious rooms with a beautiful view. & # 39;

In the meantime, the Attorney General invited sharp investigations into his treatment of the historic report by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Russian election interference in the 2016 US elections.

He received a lot of criticism because he distorted the findings in the probe.
