Remember, They are Against the Elites

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin's government flights cost taxpayers over $800K but broke no laws: Review

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin took seven trips on government jets during his short tenure at the department that have cost taxpayers over $800,000, but at no time did he violate any laws, a preliminary internal review concluded on Thursday.

A new memo to the Treasury Department's Inspector General from his legal counsel Rich Delmar determined that while these expensive trips don't break the law, they also don't meet the standards for justification set out in guidelines this administration has said it would follow. Those guidelines were laid out in a memo by President Obama's chief of staff, Bill Daley.

"I see no violation of law in these requests and uses," Delmar, writes in the report. "What is of concern is a disconnect between the standard of proof called for in the Daley memo, and the actual amount of proof provided by Treasury and accepted by the White House in justifying these trip requests."

The oligarchs that Trump has populated the White House cabinet and his personal staff with have no qualms about taking advantage of the American people (you know . . . that anonymous group they’re always crowing about) and taxpayer money. They consider themselves the well deserving privileged few and really aren’t concerned with what the complaining serfs care about.
