Mnuchin $$ Watch
High-level government officials have to file disclosures when they sell, transfer, or buy stock and other securities worth $10,000 or more. On this page I’ll be posting these forms as they’re filed by Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin (estimated worth: $500 million).
On a related note, here’s Mnuchin’s 1) initial financial disclosure as a nominee, 2) his ethics agreement (amended), 3) his certificate of divestiture, and 4) his first certification of ethics agreement compliance.

Note: Title 1 of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended, 5 U.S.C. app. § 105(c), states that: It shall be unlawful for any person to obtain or use a report: (A) for any unlawful purpose; (B) for any commercial purpose, other than by news and communications media for dissemination to the general public; (C) for determining or establishing the credit rating of any individual; or (D) for use, directly or indirectly, in the solicitation of money for any political, charitable, or other purpose. The Attorney General may bring a civil action against any person who obtains or uses a report for any purpose prohibited in paragraph (1) of this subsection. The court in which such action is brought may assess against such person a penalty in any amount not to exceed $11,000. Such remedy shall be in addition to any other remedy available under statutory or common law.
