House Democrats open investigation of Trump’s campaign travel costs

Dave Boyer The Washington TimesMay 22, 2019

House Democrats launched an investigation Wednesday into President Trump’s frequent use of Air Force One and other government resources for campaign travel, seeking financial documents from the White House counsel and Trump campaign officials.

House Administration Committee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren, California Democrat, said in letters to the White House and Trump campaign that taxpayers have “very little insight” into how the campaign reimburses the government for the president’s political trips. She noted that Mr. Trump flew to more than 40 political rallies for GOP candidates in the 2018 midterms, and that his 2020 election campaign “is well underway.”
