Secret Service paid Trump's D.C. hotel more than $33,000 for lodging to guard treasury secretary

The Secret Service rented a room at President Trumpís Washington hotel for 137 consecutive nights in 2017 ó paying Trumpís company more than $33,000 ó so it could guard Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin while he lived in one of the hotelís luxury suites, according to federal documents and people familiar with the arrangement.

Mnuchin, a financier from New York, lived in the Trump International Hotel for several months before moving to a home in Washington. Mnuchin paid for his hotel suite himself, a Treasury Department spokesperson said.

But during his stay, the Secret Service also rented the room next door at taxpayer expense, to screen Mnuchinís visitors and packages, according to three people familiar with that arrangement who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

For that room, the Trump hotel charged the maximum rate that federal agencies were generally allowed to pay in 2017: $242 per night, according to the billing records. The Secret Service checked in Jan. 25, according to billing records obtained by The Washington Post, and didnít make its last payment until June 12.

The total bill was $33,154.
