Oregon Democratic Senator Ron Wyden is calling for U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to face a government ethics violation investigation, after Mnuchin told parents to “send all your kids to ‘Lego Batman'”—a film that was financed by one of Mnuchin’s companies. In a letter to Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub, Sen. Wyden called the comments “troubling” and wrote, “I am concerned that Sec. Mnuchin’s comments may be seen to have a predictable effect on the financial interests of the entity. … I request that you review Sec. Mnuchin’s comments, and report any findings to me and the Treasury Department.”
