Beatty Statement on Steve Mnuchin Confirmation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On February 8, 2017, the U.S. Senate voted 53-47 to confirm Steve Mnuchin of California as the next Secretary of the Treasury. Following the Senate confirmation, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:
"Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's untruthful testimony before the Senate Finance Committee is deeply troubling and should have disqualified him from consideration. His testimony -- not to mention reputation as the Foreclosure King and allegations of redlining -- calls into serious question his leadership, honesty and appropriateness as the person to head the U.S. Department of the Treasury."
