Abuse of power? The couple allegedly invited cabinet officials on trips so they could travel on Air Force planes 🐷
"American Oversight today sued the Trump administration to determine whether and to what extent the president’s daughter and son-in-law invited Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on trips so that they could travel on Air Force planes.
"According to reports from the New York Times and author and journalist Vicky Ward, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner regularly requested to fly on Air Force planes even when their presence was unnecessary or inappropriate. According to Ward, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson rejected many of these requests — prompting the couple to invite cabinet officials along, often Mnuchin.
“Members of the first family have consistently used the trappings of the White House as personal status symbols,” said Austin Evers, executive director of American Oversight. “Whether they are inserting themselves into meetings with world leaders or seeking joyrides on military vehicles, the public has a right to know if Jared and Ivanka are abusing their proximity to power for personal satisfaction.”
