BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren is demanding more information about Vice President Mike Pence's decision to stay at a Trump property during his visit to Ireland.

In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's office, Warren inquired about reports that Pence stayed at the Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Doonbeg "at the 'suggestion' of the President."

"This transaction—another example of what appears to be open corruption in this administration—deepens my concerns about the ongoing ethics issues related to the President's continued financial relationship with the Trump Organization and the abuse of taxpayer funds to enrich the President and his family through their business interests," Warren wrote.

She goes on to write that, under her proposed "Anti-Corruption and Public Integrity Act," the President and Vice President would be required to put any assets deemed conflicting into a blind trust and sell them off.

Warren is not the only member of Congress criticizing Pence over the stay:

 

Pence defended his stay this week at Donald Trump's property as a "logical" choice, according to the Washington Post, because it was the only facility in the area that could accommodate his security detail.
