When President Trump was in office he really put a spotlight on the lavish overseas trips Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) attempted to take to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan when he banned her from using military aircraft. It prompted conservative government watchdog group Judicial Watch to release documents under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act that reveals Pelosi “abusing the perks of office.”
“Speaker Pelosi has a demonstrated record of abusing the perks of office that give her access to military luxury travel paid for by taxpayers,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Indeed, Judicial Watch’s work exposing the extraordinary amount of Pelosi’s travel abuses over the years caused her successor John Boehner to refrain from using Air Force luxury jets to travel to his Ohio congressional district.
