GOP Scandal Fail – Treasury Dept. says Jay-Z And Beyonce Travelled To Cuba On U.S.-APPROVED Trip

Just announced by the Treasury Department, Jay-Z and Beyonce went to Cuba with a group authorized to travel to the island by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.

“It is our understanding that the travelers in question traveled to Cuba pursuant to an educational exchange trip organized by a group authorized by OFAC to sponsor and organize programs to promote people-to-people contact in Cuba,” Alastair M. Fitzpayne, assistant secretary for legislative affairs at the Treasury Department, wrote in a letter to Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart.

Balart and fellow Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen called on the agency to look into the couple’s trip. Without a permit, the U.S. government prohibits Americans from doing any business with Cuba โ€” that includes through any travel-related transactions.
