Dems Urge Secret Service to Cough Up Details of Pence’s Football Trip

Calling Vice President Mike Pence’s early departure from an NFL game on Sunday a political stunt, two top Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee are urging the Secret Service to disclose the cost of the trip in Indianapolis.

The letter to Secret Service Director Randolph Alles on Wednesday accused Pence of billing taxpayers for a political stunt.

“The costs associated with the Vice President traveling to Indianapolis and attending a large, public event are immense, and we are deeply concerned that the Trump Administration finds it appropriate to expend taxpayer resources to play political games,” reads the letter by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman.

The letter also asks whether any of the agents who were present lost their eligibility for overtime because of statutory pay limits.

The Hill wrote:

Pence flew from Las Vegas to Indianapolis, where he attended a matchup between the Colts and the San Francisco 49ers. Reporters traveling with the vice president were told by a staffer to wait in their vans outside the stadium because of the possibility of “an early departure from the game.”

Pence soon left, after some players knelt in protest during “The Star-Spangled Banner.” President Trump later tweeted that he had told the vice president to leave if any players took a knee.

The lawyer representing Vice President Mike Pence in the Russia probe met with special counsel Robert Mueller this summer.

Pence sent his attorney, Richard Cullen, to meet with Mueller to explain that Pence is willing to cooperate with the investigation, Politico reports

So far, it doesn’t appear Pence is a target of the investigation, which has largely focused on former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and the president’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.

A Secret Service agent assigned to protect Vice President Pence was suspended after an alleged meet-up with a prostitute in a Maryland hotel.

The Secret Service told the Washington Post it “is aware of an alleged incident involving an off-duty Secret Service employee.” 

The agency required the agent, who was placed on administrative leave, to surrender all equipment.

“We are exploring the full range of disciplinary actions,” the spokesman said.

After police responded to a call about suspicious activity in a hotel room in Maryland, the agent was arrested and charged with solicitation.

“The Secret Service takes allegations of criminal activity very seriously,” the spokesman said in the statement.

“The Secret Service is committed to ensuring that all employees are held to the highest level of professional and ethical standards of conduct.”
