Pompeo reportedly hosted dozens of elaborate dinners paid for by American taxpayers — and records showed only 14% of guests were diplomats or foreign officials

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo allegedly spent taxpayer money to host multiple dinners with CEOs, media personalities, conservative politicians, and foreign officials, NBC reported.  Officials in the department raised concern when these “Madison Dinners” began in 2018 when Pompeo started in his role as Secretary of State.  There were allegedly more of these dinners planned through at least October before the coronavirus pandemic emerged. Former Inspector General Steve Linick was allegedly investigating Pompeo over a Saudi arms deal and the use of an aid to perform personal tasks. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.
