DNC Chair Statement on Confirmation of Wall Street Insider Steven Mnuchin to Treasury
February 14, 2017
WASHINGTON – DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile released the following statement:
“The muck in President Trump’s swamp just got neck-deep. When millions of American families were losing their jobs, homes, savings, pensions and hope, Steven Mnuchin was making a fortune off their misery. The bank he ran as a ‘foreclosure machine’ took the home of a 90-year-old widow for being 27 cents short on her mortgage, and it’s facing more complaints that it deliberately targeted seniors with dementia.
“It’s no surprise, then, that Mnuchin already has plans to bring his friends from Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to Washington to help get more big tax breaks for the rich.
“If it wasn’t obvious yet that Trump’s tough talk about ‘draining the swamp’ was a lie, Senate Republicans just confirmed it, and America’s middle class will be left holding the bag.”
