WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Air Force detailing $134,587.81 plus $50,000 for an advance of funds for an "escort officer" for a total of $184.587.81 for then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) Congressional delegation (CODEL) to Italy and Ukraine in 2015.

All records regarding mission taskings of flights escorting members of Congress
