State Dept. investigating whether Trump officials took gifts meant for foreign dignitaries
[www.nbcnews.com]

The State Department inspector general is investigating whether Trump administration officials helped themselves to expensive Trump-branded gifts meant for foreign dignitaries, NBC News confirmed Tuesday.

The Office of the Inspector General is investigating whether political appointees of then-President Donald Trump removed the taxpayer-funded presents from the State Department gift vault in January and took them home, a department official with knowledge of the events said. The official said the dollar value of the missing gifts is “significant.”

also:

The Saudi royal family gave Jared Kushner nearly $48,000 worth of gifts including two swords and a dagger, The New York Times reported Monday.

Kushner ended up paying the US government the full $47,920 value that the gifts were worth after he left the White House, The Times said. The value of the items far exceeds the maximum of $415 worth of gifts that US officials are allowed to accept and keep from foreign entities and governments under the Foreign Gifts and Decorations Act.

Sounds like they were trying to prevent a series of embarrassing diplomatic incidents.

Some of the intended recipients were likely take offense at being given thirty-foot-tall gold "TRUMP" signs.

Why do they keep bringing up things like this if they're not going to follow through with it? Can't stand the piece of @#$%& but talk about being Clinton being slick. It's like he's untouchable, not that I'd want to touch anything about him.

I'm not sure 5000 auto-sign MAGA hats are really worth that much.
