1/ Mr. Eisen, actually, no. Wrong on all counts.
Pruitt travel/security costs for 2017: $160k
Gina McCarthy travel/security costs for 2013-16: $630k
Lisa Jackson travel/security costs for 2009-12: $332k
Coming up next, the breakout for their trips...
2/ Pruitt in 2017:
--G7 Summit in Italy: $84k
--Morocco: 40k

McCarthy in 2016
--Ghana: 68k
--Peru: 45k
--Tokyo: 75k

McCarthy in 2015
--Paris: 41k
--Dubai: 90k
--Tokyo: 68k
--Italy: 56k (a trip that, like Pruitt, involved a private tour of Vatican)
3/ McCarthy in 2014
--Vancouver: 62k (btw, it's impressive to spend that much just getting to Canada)
--Vietnam: 68k

McCarthy in 2013
--China: 55k

Jackson in 2012

--Israel: 65k

Jackson in 2011
--Rio De Janeiro: 60k
--Montreal: 51k
--China: 156k (wow).
4/ Meanwhile, here is the direct quote from memo issued from EPA principal deputy general counsel Kevin Minoli on March 30:
"the Ethics Office [staffed by career officials] reviewed the lease agreement . . . Under the terms of the lease, if the space was utilized for one 30-day month, then the rental cost would be $1500, which is a reasonable market value." And more:
"Therefore, entering into the lease was consistent with federal ethics regulations regarding gifts, and use of the property in accordance with the lease agreement did not constitute a gift a defined in those regulations."
And you are welcome, for all these facts.
And for the record, I acknowledge Pruitt has also tallied some domestic security costs. But if you were facing daily death threats, your security detail might also think it best that you fly first class. No?
