AFR Statement: We Need Straight Answers from Treasury Nominee

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.”
