AG Barr Books Trump's DC Hotel For Party For $30,000

Attorney General William Barr has booked President Donald Trump's hotel in Washington, DC.

And it isn't just one room for himself.

According to Business Insider, it was for a $30,000 holiday party with approximately 200 guests.

A Justice Department official says that Barr is paying for the party himself.

The DOJ says that career ethics officials determined the party doesn't violate ethics rules.

Still, the event raises questions about Barr's independence from Trump.
