Watchdog org: Tillerson used $1 million in taxpayer funds to fly throughout US
OCTOBER 19, 2018
A watchdog organization estimated that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spent more than $1 million in taxpayer funds to fly around the United States in military jets during his time in the Trump administration.
Tillerson used the military jets 15 times to travel to places such as Texas, and West Virginia, according to government documents the nonpartisan watchdog American Oversight obtained, as first reported by Huffington Post.
The news outlet notes that five of Tillerson’s trips in military jets were clearly marked as “personal travel” in the Department of State’s memos to the Defense Department.
There are no clear references regarding Tillerson’s other 10 trips.
