Steve Mnuchin is either about to be fired or pass Gary Cohn on the Fed Chair shortlist because he just tied The Secretary of State to Russia while simultaneously fining one of America's largest private companies.
The Treasury Department has fined Exxon Mobil $2 million for violating sanctions that the United States imposed on Russia in 2014 while Rex W. Tillerson, now the secretary of state, was chief executive of the oil company.
“Exxon Mobil demonstrated reckless disregard for U.S. sanctions requirements,” the Treasury said in a report announcing the penalty.
According to the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, Exxon Mobil violated the sanctions when the presidents of its American subsidiaries did business with an individual whose assets were blocked. They did so by signing legal documents related to oil and gas projects in Russia with Igor Sechin, the president of Rosneft OAO, and an another person.
This reads like a Trump Administration Mad Libs gone awry with only "Don Jr." and "Covfefe" being left out of the jumble.
We can't wait to see what Stevie Mnooks does with Deutsche Bank.
