Watchdog Group Makes Major Bust Against Pelosi
A watchdog group busts Nancy Pelosi for what looks like a gross misuse of taxpayer’s money in the past.
They caught Pelosi flying around the world on lavish and undefined trips with her pals. Undefined because the trips include multiple destinations and involved attendees that were not officials, at all.
Using the Freedom of Information Act the watchdog group uncovered documents involving the Air Force that detailed nearly $135,000 plus another $50,000 in advance funds given to Nancy Pelosi for an ‘escort officer’ to oversee her Itilay and Ukraine trip in 2015.
Judicial Watch discovered in the documents that Pelosi took a trip to Milan, Rome and Naples, Italy, and Kiev, Ukraine, with her husband and several members of Congress. As well as their spouses. “The trip to Italy” included Milan, Rome and Naples with visits to the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, Duomo and viewing Da Vinci’s “Last Supper.”
The documents also show the Air Force’s negative response to a Pelosi staff request for a specific crew for Pelosi’s flight. An official notes that it: “would be a disastrous precedent to set even if it were possible.” The Air Force further points out: “Our ARC crews have plenty to balance already with military duties and their civilian employers.”
The documents also detail a CODEL trip for Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), who traveled commercial flights to Asia, including Tokyo and Okinawa, Japan; Seoul, Korea; plus Beijing and Hong Kong, China. This trip, with flights and per diems, cost at least $26,009.03.
“Speaker Pelosi has a demonstrated record of abusing the perks of office that give her access to military luxury travel paid for by taxpayers,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Judicial Watch previously uncovered that Pelosi’s military travel cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over one two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.
The lawsuit to obtain this information was originally filed by Judicial Watch back in December of 2015 but the Air Force failed to respond. Now, watch the mainstream media ignore this too.
