Today's Trump gang sleazy behavior

 From Steve Mnuchin's released schedule. Reports Daily Beast, "It was all supposedly blacked out in the name of 'techniques and procedures for law enforcement' under Exemption 7 of the Freedom of Information Act"
The exemption allows for the redaction of information that “would disclose techniques and procedures for law-enforcement investigations or prosecutions, or would disclose guidelines for law-enforcement investigations or prosecutions if such disclosure could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law.”

.... In the first eight months of Mnuchin’s tenure, the Treasury Department has used Exemption 7 148 times, or 18 times per month, on average.
