Climate Envoy John Kerry traveled to numerous locations for reasons unknown.
The State Department has refused to release information pertaining to people Kerry has met with, budgeting, and other details.
Head of the House Oversight Committee James Comer (R-KY) sent a final letter to Kerry’s office, noting that a subpoena may be Congress’ next move should the climate envoy’s office refuse to comply with the two previous requests for budgeting information.
“The State Department has not provided any meaningful updates to Committee staff inquiries on the status of producing these documents,” Comer wrote in a statement.
“Envoy Kerry is engaging in activities that skirt congressional authority, threaten foreign policy under the guise of climate advocacy, and could undermine economic health,” Comer continued, adding, “Yet, Envoy Kerry and his office are refusing to be transparent about their activities, spending, and staffing with the Committee—and the American people.”
Reporting from The Epoch Times:
In his effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions, Kerry has flown hundreds of thousands of miles—sometimes commercially, sometimes on his own private jet—leaving a gigantic carbon footprint in his wake. In just nine months last year he logged more than 180,000 miles, emitting some 9.5 million pounds of carbon, according to an analysis of his official travel announcements by the Washington Free Beacon. The global travel and speeches to combat global warming have enjoyed glowing coverage from media outlets including The New Yorker, which praised his effort to “save the climate.” But thus far it has unfolded behind a cloak of invisibility beyond the press releases.
