The trouble with people like ex-banker-turned-Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, is that intellectual dishonesty is their main operating system. Lying and tricking (and worse?) have been the backbone of their career, and they have been promoted and grotesquely enriched by it. Mnuchin amassed a $300 million net worth this way, why would he change now?
Mnuchin says that he (and Trumpco) were not aware that the bi-partisan 21st Glass-Steagall Act proposed in 2013 separates commercial from investment banking? Laughable and an insult to intelligent people everywhere. People are gullible and easily manipulated by those without conscience, Mnuchin’s success is living proof.
Senator Elizabeth Warren questioned Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin about his reversal of support for the Glass-Steagall Act in the May 18, 2017 Senate Banking Committee hearing. Here is a direct video link.
