US Treasury Secretary, Mnuchin requested Military aircraft for honeymoon

President Trump

The Treasury Department's Office of Inspector General is now investigating Mnuchin's request for the plane to take him and his wife, Louise Linton, on their honeymoon to Scotland, France and Italy, according to ABC.

A Treasury Department spokesperson acknowledged Mnuchin requested the military plane, saying that as Treasury Secretary and a member of the National Security Council he needs access to secure communications.

The request was ultimately rescinded after they realized the incredibly obvious fact that there are plenty of other ways to make sure Mnuchin has access to secure communications that don't involve commandeering military aircraft. Officials told ABC News that Mnuchin's request was unusual and could have cost about $25,000 an hour.

GOP strategist Ford O'Connell said Mnuchin and Cohn have key roles to play in the tax-reform push.

Mnuchin declined to say what business tax rate is achievable.

Ms Linton drew attention to that trip after posting a photo online of herself and her husband exiting a USA government plane jet.

The Treasury Department is reviewing the flight to determine whether any ethical violations were made, The New York Times reported. The U.S. Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, doubts that the President's plans for a revised tax rate to lower it to 15% may never be realized at all. But an ethics watchdog questioned whether Mnuchin scheduled the one-day trip specifically to coincide with the eclipse. They don't use their own money, they use yours.

When Jenni Miller, a mother of three from OR, left a comment calling the 36-year-old "deplorable", Linton went on the offensive in a long-winded tirade that branded her "adorably out of touch".

"She went on to include hashtags of various luxury designers she was wearing: "#rolandmouret trousers #tomford sunnies, #hermesscarf #valentinorockstudheels #valentino #usa", prompting one user to reply, "Glad we could pay for your little getaway.

She later apologized for her condescending and "highly insensitive" responses to a woman who criticized her for appearing to use taxpayer funds for a vacation.

On social media, Linton, responding to an OR woman who criticized her "little getaway" to Kentucky, wrote "I'm pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day trip than you did". Louise Linton, at the time, mocked the idea that the government "paid for our honeymoon".
