Inspector General Launches Second Investigation Into Mnuchin Private Jet Travel
Trump official is under investigation, again, for private jet travel.
The Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a second investigation into Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s private jet travel after learning of inaccurate information provided by the department.
According to CNN, an official with knowledge of the matter said that the Treasury did not provide an accurate account of Mnuchin’s August 15 trip to New York to meet with President Trump.
The trip to New York cost taxpayers an estimated $25,000.
The information that was originally provided to the inspector general’s office said that Mnuchin traveled from Andrews Air Force base to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on a military jet.
However, in fact, Mnuchin traveled on a commercial flight from D.C. to New York.
