AFR Statement: We Need Straight Answers from Treasury Nominee

Submitted by on January 31, 2017 – 11:36 am
Lisa Donner, Executive Director of Americans for Financial Reform, issued this statement in response to the refusal of the Senate Finance Committee minority to allow a vote on the nominaton of Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary:

“Mnuchin’s failure to  answer questions from committee members fully and honestly is one more example of an all too familiar Wall Street pattern: that rules are for little people. That is not an acceptable approach for a Treasury Secretary. Demanding answers before this nomination is rammed through is exactly the right thing to do.”
