[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC Live guest host Ayman Mohyeldin welcomed New Mexico Sen. Martin Heinrich onto his Tuesday show to discuss the latest developments on COVID-19 relief measures. After days of Democrats holding the process up by insisting that unrelated things be included in any bill, Mohyeldin had an opportunity to question one as to why, but instead echoed misleading concerns related to so-called "slush funds" citing President Trump's taxes and previous history in the hotel business.

Mohyeldin, concerned that Trump could use the crisis to benefit himself, asked Heinrich, "Do you view that oversight issue as even more complex and potentially more at risk for corruption given that some of the affected industries like hotels are also entities that are famously run by the president and he hasn't been exactly very transparent about his taxes or his holdings?"
