Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that banking records of President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen appear to have been leaked from a database maintained by his department.

“Our inspector general is reviewing the issue of leaks. There is the appearance that some of the information may have gone out,” Mnuchin told the House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday. “There is no excuse whatsoever for anybody who has access to these important systems to release information on an unauthorized basis.”
