Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has been blacking out some details of his official schedule, The Daily Beast reported on Tuesday.

Officially, the feds say the redacted portions of Mnuchin's schedules are made in the name of "techniques and procedures for law enforcement" under Exemption 7 of the Freedom of Information Act.

But the Daily Beast says Mnuchin's use of the exemption, supposedly related to his personal security, is significantly higher than treasury secretaries who preceded him in the job.

"In the first eight months of Mnuchin's tenure, the Treasury Department has used Exemption 7 148 times, or 18 times per month, on average … By comparison, both Treasury secretaries in the Obama administration used law-enforcement exemptions 235 times in eight years," The Beast's Justin Glawe writes.

"In some cases, Mnuchin has used Exemption 7 heavily on days that have come under scrutiny for his use of military jets for travel, like his trip to Kentucky where he viewed the solar eclipse."
