Reporter covering economic development with a focus on commercial real estate and the Trump Organization Education: University of Wisconsin at Madison
Jonathan O'Connell covers economic development with a focus on commercial real estate and the Trump Organization for The Washington Post. His stories reflect the relationships between communities and the built environment, whether it's why companies are moving to urban neighborhoods or Amazon's search for a second headquarters. He has written extensively about Donald Trump's business, including how his D.C. hotel has affected Washington and what Trump hotels will mean to the Mississippi Delta. O'Connell is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
A draft of the IG's report, a portion of which was obtained by The Washington Post, said Murphy’s testimony before Congress “was incomplete and may have left the misleading impression that she had no discussions with the President or senior White House officials about the project.”
