Steven Mnuchin is miffed as heck, and he’s not going to take it anymore. "I take great offense to anybody who calls me the foreclosure king," the Treasury Secretary and former Goldman Sachs banker told a Congressional hearing late last week.

At issue is the role of Mnuchin’s banking adventure at OneWest, a bank that like many others used questionable practices to foreclose on thousands of American families. Mnuchin argues OneWest was simply following standard industry practices, even if these came to be widely viewed as reprehensible.
