As reported by CNN: “House Democrats on Monday (Sept. 27) accused three Donald Trump associates of breaking the law as they used their connection to the former president’s private golf club to shape veterans’ policies for their own benefit. The three associates, known as the “Mar-a-Lago” trio, are billionaire Marvel Entertainment Chairman Ike Perlmutter, attorney Marc Sherman, and doctor Bruce Moskowitz. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, were aware of those efforts, the Democrats alleged.”

“Perlmutter, attorney Marc Sherman and doctor Bruce Moskowitz — known as the “Mar-a-Lago Trio” — refused to comply with a federal transparency law while secretly influencing the Department of Veterans Affairs during the Trump administration, two Democratic committee chairs said in a press release. “The documents we are releasing today shed light on the secret role the Trio played in developing VA initiatives and programs, including a ‘hugely profitable’ plan to monetize veterans’ medical records,” said Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Mark Takano, D-Calif., in a press release. They accused the trio of violating transparency rules established by the Federal Advisory Committee Act.”

Marvel is primarily reported as part of Disney’s Consumer Products segment ever since Marvel Studios’ reorganization from Marvel Entertainment into Walt Disney Studios.
