FILE - In this Feb. 14, 2017 file photo, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin speaks in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington. Mnuchin may be new to government, but he’s learning quickly that it’s not a good idea to make a joke that could run afoul of government ethics rules. In a letter Friday, March 31, 2017, to the head of the Office of Government Ethics, Mnuchin says it was a mistake for him last week to jokingly urge parents to send their kids to see “The Lego Batman Movie.” Mnuchin was an executive producer of the top-grossing movie, which is still in theaters.
