Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchinsaid that he never used government resources for personal travel. "That's just slap your forehead stuff". The agency's Office of Inspector General confirmed Thursday that it is also looking into a trip Mnuchin and his wife took to Kentucky last month on an Air Force plane.
He was at it again on Thursday when, in a conversation with Politico's Ben White, he took himself out of the frying pan and jumped right into the fire when trying to knock down reports that he had used a government plane to fly to Kentucky to see the solar eclipse.
Mnuchin defended that decision on Thursday, arguing the reason he even broached the idea was because he wanted to ensure he had a secure communications channel if he was needed while on vacation.
Mnuchin said he spends "probably over 50 percent" of his time on national security issues and sanctions nearly daily.
"Let me be clear: I'm very sensitive to the use of government funds", Mnuchin said. "Really? I don't have any interest in watching the eclipse".
