Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is under investigation for unethical use of taxpayer funds for travel expenses. Last month, Mnuchin used an Air Force jet to fly from Manhattan to Washington, D.C., an hour-long flight that cost $25,000. Earlier in August, he and his wife used a military jet for a "business trip" to Kentucky. Also in August, Mnuchin requested — and was denied — the use of a military jet for his European honeymoon. Mnuchin is reportedly worth $300 million.

The money they waste, then the money spent investigating the waste, could help a lot of people in Puerto Rico, FL and TX.— Amy Randall (@knothollow) September 23, 2017
Can't wait to hear the deplorable justification to this and Tom Price's expenditures.....you really drained the swamp guys— Don Flower III (@DonFlowerIII) September 24, 2017
Speaking of Tom Price, the health secretary is also under investigation for using private planes at least two dozen times since his appointment, costing taxpayers over $300,000.
But the National Endowment for the Arts sent the U.S. into financial ruin, right?
