Treasury Sect'y Steve Mnuchin Christmas is Horses

A suspicious gift-wrapped box was left on Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's Bel-AIr driveway

A box of gift-wrapped horse manure was to blame for a bomb scare in a driveway near Mnuchin's Bel Air, California, home Saturday evening, according to Los Angeles ABC station KABC.

An LAPD bomb squad X-rayed the package before opening it and found the horse manure inside, police told local media.

Police cleared the package at around 8:45 p.m.

There was also a Christmas card with the present, which made references to Mnuchin, President Trump and the president's tax bill.

U.S. Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin testifies during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing concerning the Trump administration's fiscal year 2018 budget proposals, on Capitol Hill, May 24, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Wrapped in gift paper and addressed from "the American people", the package reportedly contained a Christmas card.

US Secret Service told CNN they were aware of the incident but referred all questions to the LAPD. He previously worked in banking and finance before joining public service, acting as CEO of Dune Capital Management and working for The Goldman Sachs Group earlier in his career.

Since that time, he faced a brief scandal after his new wife, Louise Linton, bragged on Instagram about the couple's travels.
