Swearing in of Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury.

Pool was escorted into Oval Office at 8:40 p.m. POTUS, VPOTUS, Mnuchin and his fiancée Louise Linton stood behind a podium set up in the room.

POTUS spoke for about 4 minutes (quotes to follow) and then VPOTUS administered the oath of office to Mnuchin at 8:45 p.m.

Mnuchin then signed a document on a separate table next to the Resolute Desk, which Pence signed afterwards.

Mnuchin gave brief remarks (quotes to follow) and pool was escorted out at 8:48 p.m.

Two questions were shouted to POTUS at the end about his evaluation of national security adviser Flynn, but were ignored.
