US Treasury Secretary Faces Inquiry Over Honeymoon Jet Request
Business class wouldn’t do. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs banker, reportedly sought a government-funded, $25,000-per-hour Air Force jet for his European honeymoon this summer, but decided against it when it turned out that protected communications were available on other aircraft. Mnuchin and his wife, actor Louise Linton, sparked the inquiry when they traveled to Kentucky last month during the solar eclipse on a taxpayer-funded plane. Linton has since agreed to reimburse the government for her travel costs when accompanying her husband.
