Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday told Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to “follow through” on his commitment to investigate reports that Anthony Scaramucci, while acting as a “Trump translator” during the World Economic Forum, engaged in direct talks regarding potential business transactions with the head of a Russian entity subject to sanctions by the Treasury Department.
Warren’s letter follows her January 19 request – sent in tandem with Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md. – to Mnuchin, the then-Treasury Secretary-Designate, asking him to investigate Scaramucci’s conduct.
Scaramucci, the founder of SkyBridge Capital, sold his stake in SkyBridge on Jan. 17. He was set to become a top business advisor to President Donald Trump, but reports have said that post has been rescinded.
Mnuchin responded to Warren’s letter on Jan. 30, agreeing Warren, D-Mass., states, pending his confirmation, to “ensure the appropriate Department components assess whether further investigation of this matter is warranted.”
Mnuchin was confirmed by the Senate on Feb. 13.
