Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Caught in the Big Solar Eclipse Lie

According to the Washington Post, when Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was asked last year if he took an Air Force jet in August 2017 to Fort Knox to watch the solar eclipse he said: "“People in Kentucky took this stuff very seriously. Being a New Yorker, I don’t have any interest in watching the eclipse,” he said. Suggesting that he had no desire to view the eclipse and did not view it.

The Fort Knox area was one of the prime areas in the country to view the eclipse and there was controversy over why Mnuchin was in the area precisely at the time of the eclipse.

Now via a Freedom of Information Act request, ThinkProgress has exclusively obtained photographic evidence of Mnuchin at Fort Knox with his trophy wife watching the solar eclipse and continuing to live his Carly Simon life.
