    Billionaire Munchin ask for a MILITARY jet for European honeymoon & an eclipse trip

    “The Secretary is a member of the National Security Council and has responsibility for the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence,” the spokesman said. “It is imperative that he have access to secure communications, and it is our practice to consider a wide range of options to ensure he has these capabilities during his travel, including the possible use of military aircraft


    ON Sept. 1, it was reported Mnuchin is being investigated for taking a government plane to view the solar eclipse in its totality last month
    . The Washington Post reported Treasury Department Inspector General counsel Rich Delma is “reviewing the circumstances of the Secretary’s August 21 flight… to determine whether all applicable travel, ethics, and approved...

    No - it was a different thread about his wife's instagram photos.
