Chief Of Staff John Kelly Now Has To Approve White House Criminals’ Use Of Private Planes

The White House cracked down on Cabinet officials’ use of private planes Friday, telling them chief of staff John Kelly must approve almost all travel on “government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft,” after Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned in disgrace over his own taxpayer-funded flights.trump-kelly
Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent out the memo soon after Price’s resignation was made public.

“In light of recent events, the President has asked me to remind the heads of all executive departments and agencies of Administration policies on travel,” Mulvaney wrote.


He reminded the department and agency heads that, by regulation, “Government-owned, rented, leased, or chartered aircraft should not be used for travel by Government employees except with specific justification.”
