A government watchdog group, Americans for Public Trust (APT), is filing a federal lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for not providing records detailing Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s use of private government jets.  APT has repeatedly requested FAA records of how often Buttigieg used the agency’s small fleet of jets and the costs to taxpayers.  According to the lawsuit, the FAA has improperly delayed providing the records after three separate requests filed by the APT.  APT’s executive director Caitlin Sutherland told Fox News Digital, “Pete Buttigieg abused taxpayer dollars by using a private jet to fly domestically and internationally. It’s been six months since we helped expose Secretary Buttigieg’s trips, but his agency refuses to tell the American people how much they’re on the hook for his extravagant travel arrangements.”
