I'm appalled. I've fought government waste and mismanagement throughout my time in the Senate, but this is one of the worst examples I've seen yet.
I found out that a government subcontractor mismanaged more than $51 MILLION dollars.
Last week, my office released a report detailing this scandal and exposing that the government is still doing business with the company, and I questioned senior Pentagon officials about this gross misuse of taxpayer money.
And here's the kicker: guess what that contractor spent millions on instead of on training Afghan forces?
Bentleys, Porsches, and other luxury vehicles.
I can't believe that.
When I spoke to Secretary of Defense Mattis last week, he agreed.
These people shouldn't be anywhere near one dime of taxpayer money.
I asked those Pentagon officials why in the world we're still doing business with these crooks.
And I won't stop demanding answers.
With tens of millions of dollars flying around, frankly, nobody at the Pentagon's paying close enough attention. But I am - and I will get to the bottom of this.
Somebody's head's got to roll on this.
