Two corporate-style jets that the FBI insisted it needed for the global fight against terrorism are primarily being used for personal and business trips by Attorney General Eric Holder, the former AG and FBI Director Robert Mueller, the Washington Guardian reports.

Taxpayers financed “non-mission flights” on the luxury Gulfstream V jet to the tune of $11.4 million between 2007 and 2011, the Guardian reported, citing an investigation by the Government Accountability Office.

Holder and his predecessor under the Bush administration took 88 personal trips, the Guardian wrote.

“If somebody asks for the expenditure of federal money for the Gulfstream, it’s to be used for the purpose it was meant to be be used for,” said Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has oversight of the Justice Department and FBI.
