Mnuchin seeks to delay SS report on Trump spending till after election

Chi

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is pushing to delay a proposed disclosure of Secret Service spending on presidential travel until after the 2020 election, a spokesperson for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Thursday.

The Government Accountability Office published a report in January 2019 finding that federal agencies incurred costs of $13.6 million in a period of just over a month in 2017 when Trump took four trips to his Florida club Mar-a-Lago.

In comparison, the government spent about $97 million on travel costs related to former President Barack Obama over his eight-year term, the conservative activist group Judicial Watch found in 2016.

So taxpayers spent more in ONE MONTH protecting Trump on his many vacations than on Obama's average for an entire year?

The worst part is that Trump, unlike Obama, is also personally funneling taxpayer money into his pockets while vacationing on our dime. Wonder how the fiscal conservatives would feel about this. No wonder he and the White House are so eager to try to hide just how much money the grifter-in-chief is costing us to do all that golfing that he promised he would be too busy to do.

I'm sure all the struggling middle class families will really appreciate all their hard-earned tax dollars going to funding such expensive and frequent vacations for Trump.

Why it is almost as if he is robbing us blind and doesn't want us to know how bad it is so he can keep on robbing us blind.

He will just say it's executive privilege and it can't released. There problem solved. Just like the cover up with Ukraine, which is what it is, obstruction of Congress and cover up.

Surely even his supporters will agree that this information belongs in the public domain.

What a joke, if (Big if) Trump wins the election then he'll say that since he was re-elected that no one cares about his golfing expenses. Exactly the same excuse he used for not releasing his tax forms, other than the lame "I'm under audit" excuse.

"Surely even his supporters will agree that this information belongs in the public domain."

Dream on Nana......but I suspect you're being facetious. We all know that he can lie, cheat, steal, and even kill someone in cold blood on 5th Ave and they'd somehow justify it, he's their hero, their demigod. It's hard to get more culty than that.

Maybe they are waiting for tonights FOX talking points to decide what they think about this. They, FOX pundits and hosts, get quoted here a lot.

Wonder if there will be any reporting tonight on FOX that State Department Security officials were given NO warnings about any imminent danger to four embassies.

Did Trump lie, how could that be? Guess Pompeo just screwed up and forgot to advise his own embassies that they were imminent targets.

How about Trump's reaction to the Saudi terrorists attacks on American soldiers on American soil?

Everything will be explained away , or ignored , tonight.

Annie, There is plenty of reason to suspect Epstein didn't kill himself. But your claim that Donald Trump murdered Epstein is a smear made without a shred of evidence.

How many abuses of power can Trump be held accountable for in his 3 years so far?

your claim that Donald Trump murdered Epstein is a smear made without a shred of evidence

a) not far from here is another thread on over 30 years of smears against hillary which even cost her an election, none of which have proven true, which doesn't seem to bother anyone on the right.

b) trump had reason to see that epstein didn't testify. barr is head of the doj so the captain of the ship to keep epstein alive until he was brought to trial and he failed to do that. Of course trump himself wouldn't do any "wet work" but that doesn't mean he didn't order it to happen. epstein knew too much on too many of the rich and powerful for many to not want him to testify, but only barr's team had the opportunity. And now that evidence from his first suicide attempt has gone missing, it's only getting curiouser.

So that's more evidence than was ever turned up for smears about hillary and bill having people murdered or that she was running a child porn shop out of the basement of a pizza parlor which has no basement.

I don't get how someone can get all up in arms about a 'smear' (your word, not mine) when trump & co are nonstop smearing...one need not even go back a day to find one:

President Donald Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory Saturday evening alleging without evidence that former President Bill Clinton was connected to the death of wealthy financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein...Source NBC News

So long as it's trump doing the smearing, it's ok.
