Treasury Secretary Steve “Hollywood Swinger®” Mnuchin may be the least-known of Trump’s cabinet, but he is among the most powerful. He’s the frontman for the proposed overhaul of the U.S. tax system, a “tax reform” that Mnuchin, after lying about its purpose for a year, has finally admitted will benefit “only the rich.” He’s said rolling back the consumer protections of Dodd-Frank is “job one.” Mnuchin, a former investment banker and movie financier with no prior experience in Washington, (though he DID produce the Lego Batman Movie) is a perfect fit with the Trump Crime Family® and its at once clumsy and kleptocratic plans to loot the US economy for all they can grab. Here’s how “Hollywood” rolls:
A long-time banker with GoldmanSachs, Mnuchin bought a bank of his own, OneWest, in 2009, growing it into the largest bank in Southern California through predatory practices like aggressively foreclosing on homeowners.
At Treasury, the normally-reticent Mnuchin received national attention for pig-at-the-trough private trips on the taxpayer dime for himself and his third trophy wife, Louise Linton. He used an Air Force jet on a trip to Kentucky to view the solar eclipse. The Treasury’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) opened an inquiry. Mnuchin, who was accompanied by his Linton on the trip, reimbursed the government for Linton's travel, which amounted to $595 out of a total cost of $26,900. Mnuchin took two Air Force flights to Europe in March and May 2017, each cost more than $300,000. On one flight, to Ottawa in June, Mnuchin was accompanied by Linton. The total cost of the Ottawa trip was $16,350, and the reimbursement repaid for Linton's cost of travel was $744.
Steve Mnuchin is literally on the money. Get to know him.
