Steven Mnuchin Requested a US Military Jet to Use for His Honeymoon

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that he never used government resources for personal travel.

The Treasury Department considered it, he said, because he needed access to secure communications channels while on the trip.

President Donald Trump is calling Mnuchin a "straight shooter" and saying he has total confidence in him following a report that Mnuchin's use of government planes is being investigated by the Treasury Department's inspector general.

Mnuchin said the request was about national security, and "not about convenience".

ABC News was first to report Wednesday that Mnuchin requested a government plane for his honeymoon trip with wife Louise Linton. "Being a New Yorker, I don't have any interest in watching the eclipse", Steve Mnuchin said Thursday at a conference sponsored by Politico. I was like, the eclipse? Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was primarily to discuss tax reform and also tour the nation's store of gold at Fort Knox. His staff has since been able to meet this need by other means, he said. "Fort Knox is a symbol of the economic might of our country".

After the Yale alumni told Mr. Mnuchin that he had a moral obligation to quit Mr. Trump's cabinet, Mr. Mnuchin issued a statement denouncing hate, defending the president and refusing to quit.

"At the time, my staff wanted to make sure that I constantly had access to secure communications and secure information. He's a very honorable man".

The attention to his aircraft is the latest in a period of turbulence for Mnuchin and Linton, who was criticized for the online shaming of an OR woman who questioned her Instagram flaunting after the Kentucky trip.

Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, faced backlash for the trip after Linton posted a photo of her exiting the jet on Instagram, with hashtags identifying the various high-end designers she was wearing. In her post, Linton included hashtags of various luxury designers she was wearing, which prompted criticism from an OR mother of three who wrote "glad we could pay for your little getaway".
