Trump says he's preparing report on his personal finances

The president said the report will show he is so wealthy he does not need revenue from his hotels. The claim comes amid criticism over other governments, Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Air Force personnel staying at his properties. Trump also has floated the idea of holding a G-7 summit next summer at his struggling Doral property in Florida.

The Doral matter was mentioned in a House Judiciary Committee statement released earlier Monday announcing it will hold hearings about potential procedural moves toward possible articles of impeachment against the president.

Trump's remarks came a few days after the Democratic House Ways and Means Committee revealed it had received "credible allegations" from a federal employee of potentially "inappropriate efforts to influence" the IRS' mandatory audit program of presidential tax returns.

A handful of other House panels also are looking into the president's finances. None, however, have released much information.
