Upon landing in Kentucky, Linton posted the now-viral photo on Instagram, flaunting her wealth and tagging a series of luxury designers. Was the trip planned so the couple could get a view of the eclipse while flying? Washington watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (C.R.E.W.) is filing a F.O.I.A.to review the goal of the couple's trip.
A McConnell aide told the Washington Post that he and Mnuchin viewed the eclipse not from the rooftop but from the lawn, without explanation for the inaccurate online post.
According to C.R.E.W.'s Web site, its request of government documents "would shed light on the justification for Secretary Mnuchin's use of a government plane, rather than a commercial flight, for a trip that seems to have been planned to solar eclipse and to enable the Secretary to secure a viewpoint in the path of the eclipse's totality". Lololol. Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband? Adorable! Do you think the U.S. govt paid for our honeymoon or personal travel?! Either as an individual earner in taxes OR in self sacrifice to your country?.
The public post, which has since been deleted, received instant criticism by users, who slammed Linton for bragging about her wealth and using a government plane.
Told Thursday that the luncheon had originally been scheduled for another date, CREW spokesman Jordan Libowitz said, "We're not sure about the motive for the trip, but we filed the [Freedom of Information Act request] to get more information about it".
Linton, who has since changed her Instagram page setting to private, later apologized.
The group is requesting records on the authorization and costs for the trip and any other uses of a government plane since Mnuchin's appointment as treasury secretary. And yet the wealthy Linton defends her boasting and derides me, a hardworking, taxpaying American, in the process. "It was inappropriate and highly insensitive".
Also, Treasury said Mnuchin is reimbursing the government for his wife's travel, which is a long-standing policy when civilians travel on military aircraft.
