Burr Statement on Committee Vote of Mnuchin to Head Treasury Dept.

WASHINGTON –Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) today made the following statement after voting at the Senate Finance Committee in support of Steven Mnuchin to head the United States Department of the Treasury:

“Even though the Democrats are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at President Trump’s nominees, Mnuchin proceeds today to a full Senate vote on his confirmation. Mnuchin’s credentials are self-evident proof that he is more than qualified to lead the Department of Treasury. It’s time for the Democrats to stop their shameless grandstanding and let’s get leaders for our government in place quickly, as has been the practice with every President to date.”
