My favorite Steve Mnuchin story: Mnuchin filed to take a 90-year-old woman’s house after a 27-cent payment error. When she tried to pay the 30cent balance, Steve Mnuchin took her to court to foreclose on the house:
The bank even started one foreclosure over an unpaid bill for 27 cents, according to allegations raised by surviving partners, their relatives and advisers.

It may be spurious but I wouldn't put it past him.

Rex W. Tillerson
Secretary of State

Fired unceremoniously after calling the Dona;d a moron. Legacy of decimated, dispirited State Dept. Replaced by even more slithery Pompeo who has finished off any vestiges of our Department of State. Currently being investigated for second Hatch act violation. Pompeo is also notable for managing the firing of Steve Linick IG who was initiating investigations into misappropriation of taxpayer dollars for personal use disguised as State Department expenditures. Linick was gone before investigations could be completed.

Scott Pruitt EPA

Too numerous to count and keep track of his crimes-- free spending of taxpayer dollars for private aircraft personal trips with the family; $40K soundproof SCIF in his office. On record telling a lobbyist he only talks to those who can pay. Pruitt is the subject of 13 federal investigations. All this in addition to his selling out the EPA to fossil fuels and other lobbyists.

Steve Mnuchin Treasury Secretary

Stonewalling Congress, Mnuchin is refusing to reveal any details on the lending of $600 billion in taxpayer money meant to support small businesses under the CARES Act. It is riddled with fraudulent loans to big publicly traded companies. He claimed the information is confidential, some lawmakers see the move as an attempt to dodge accountability for how the money is spent.

There is additionally $500 billion Mnuchin demanded be written into the act. This $500 billion can be found 800 pages into the CARES ACT. It gives Mnuchin sole discretion over distribution. Additionally, no meetings are required to be documented and no memos and meeting notes outlining the distribution will be submitted.We have yet to hear any details of how this HALF A TRILLION was spent

How about Ryan Zinke Interior Secretary?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/inter...

Interior Department Secretary Ryan Zinke submitted his resignation to the White House on Saturday, facing intense pressure to step down because of multiple probes tied to his real estate dealings in his home state of Montana and his conduct in office.

Your turn. When you're done I have a whole bunch more. This is a nice start

I know there's more, but while you're at it, you left out
>>>Steve Mnuchin, Indybank spearheading the 200 million home foreclosures in 2009-10.
Mnuchin was the genius behind robo-signing / foreclosures on anyone outta a job during the housing crisis. Mnuchin stole / resold billions of dollars on the backs of hard, working-class families.
Trump was so inspired he made him Treasury Sec.

Steve Mnuchin makes swamp creatures look ethical

Mea culpa for leaving this out. It is one of the swampiest and ugliest parts of the Mnuchin story and deserves special honorary mention.

His OneWest bank was involved with the complex world of securitized mortgages and illegal foreclosures. The legal process for taking away the borrowers home is lengthy and takes months of legal steps that eventually let the bank foreclose.OneWest was notable for foreclosures that skirted the legal steps.

OneWest was the target of investigations that were eventually dropped in CA without comment on why. OneWest did all they could to stonewall and not cooperate. Kamala Harris's office (as AG) eventually withdrew. Mnuchin was free to keep his millions and put them in tax sheltered offshore accounts. He may have escaped through a technicality:

https://theintercept.com/2017/01/03/treasury-nominee-steve-m...

Mnuchin spokesperson Tara Bradshaw said that “state attorneys general have no jurisdiction to investigate federally chartered banks like OneWest. When OneWest pointed that out to the California attorney general’s office, they withdrew their subpoena.”


Whatever happened, Mnuchin profited hugely through computer (robo)generated foreclosures that were prone to error; they favored foreclosure and did not reflect the true state of the debt. OneWest made higher profits on foreclosures rather than following the months long process that were designed to give the homeowner a chance to bring mortgage payments up to date.

Mnuchin was later gifted the Secretary of Treasury position: From Open Secrets November 2016

Steven Mnuchin:

While Trump blasted Clinton throughout the campaign for her ties to Wall Street, the president-elect is considering this former Goldman Sachs exec for Treasury. Mnuchin was the Trump campaign’s finance chairman, charged with rounding up as much money as possible for the effort. He maxed out his contributions to Trump with $5,400, and gave $200,400 to the Republican National Committee.

Can we dig up similar dirt on Yellen? Feel free to verify she is a swamp beast worthy of the Mnuchin legacy

I think Georgians liked Ivanka, and Jared as Senior advisors to the President, two people with no qualification for the job, oh sorry their qualification is they are related to President. Georgians love nepotism and they are going to be so sick of missing that.
