Flashback: Pelosi Caught Charging Air Force $185,000 to Fly Family & Dems to Europe

The following article, Flashback: Pelosi Caught Charging Air Force $185,000 to Fly Family & Dems to Europe, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Nancy Pelosi and the mainstream media were up in arms after President Trump canceled the speaker’s trip abroad. Heck, a Pelosi spokesman even suggested that 45 put Pelosi’s life in danger because he announced that she’d have to fly private if she still wanted to go.

The California liberal must not have remembered that there’s a partial government shutdown taking place at the moment. If workers can’t get paid, Nancy shouldn’t be allowed to fly on the taxpayers’ dime. That should be common sense.

As it turns out, Pelosi has an extensive history of abusing military travel paid for by the American people. From Daily Caller:

Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.

More from Judicial Watch:

In response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one Defense Department official wrote, “Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi’s team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?…[T]here’s no need to block every weekend ‘just in case’…” The email also notes that Pelosi’s office had, “a history of canceling many of their past requests.”

One DOD official complained about the “hidden costs” associated with the speaker’s last minute changes and cancellations. “We have…folks prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some), cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc.”

Top shelf liquor, huh?

Check out this video on Pelosi’s travel from 2009:

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, implies that President Trump is putting Pelosi and other Democrats in danger.

Hammill should apologize for being such a fear-mongering zealot.

LOOK:

Pelosi was planning to head to Belgium, Egypt, and Afghanistan on the taxpayers’ dime – as one does when elected to public office.

Her bags were all packed. She was ready to go.

Then, President Trump said no dice.

If Nancy wants to fly overseas to bash America she’ll have to fly private.

What happened next? Pelosi’s luggage was sent back to her office!
