Big Bank corruption permeates our economy, social institutions and government while destroying the lives of the average American worker, homeowner and consumer. Banks fund corporations, projects and policies that are antithetical to American life quality, but as long as there are profits to be made to hell with everything else.
Predatory lending and fraudulent foreclosures have decimated our economy and communities while judicial and law enforcement corruption provides little relief. Through a process of black pools, shell companies, and exotic financial instruments the banks escape prosecution and are not held accountable while foreclosing on millions of homes they don’t own through forgery, fraud and creating the illusion of standing.
The decade long “financial crisis”for the American public was a financial windfall for those who were positioned to exploit, profit and benefit from the misery of millions. The banksters who rigged the system and carried out the plans of their controllers were rewarded handsomely with promotions to CEO, seven-figure corporate bonuses and invitations to join President Donald Trump’s administration.
Steven T. Mnuchin, President-elect Donald J. Trump’s pick to be Treasury secretary, left Goldman Sachs in 2002 “at the age of 39 with a reported $46 million stake in the bank,” according to the Wall Street Journal. His wealth was founded on stripping the wealth from pension funds and retirement accounts.
For a grand finale he joined One West, where Mnuchin and his colleagues were more than happy to enrich themselves at the government’s expense, but when it came to their customers, displayed little mercy or compassion when foreclosing on homes with dummied up documents. In 2009, according to the New York Post, a judge called OneWest’s behavior “harsh, repugnant, shocking and repulsive” when it tried to foreclose on a New York family. The judge labeled the bank’s conduct as “inequitable, unconscionable, vexatious and opprobrious.” Mnuchin’s ability to exploit and capitalize on human tragedy with no remorse makes him a dangerous candidate.
Recently it was discovered that Mnuchin failed to disclose nearly $100 million of his assets on Senate Finance Committee disclosure documents and forgot to mention his role as a director of an investment fund located in a tax haven. Why he is still under consideration after this ethical breach can’t be contemplated.
