Wyden Statement on Upcoming Confirmation Hearing of Treasury Secretary Nominee Steven Mnuchin

WASHINGTON Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the statement below following the announcement of Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin’s confirmation hearing on January 19, 2017:

I look forward to asking tough questions about his history of predatory lending and his plans to create prosperity for all Americans, not just the ones at the very top."
