Elizabeth Warren is in the Senate Banking Committee right now – and she’s got some questions for Kathy Kraninger.
For weeks, she’s called on Donald Trump’s new nominee to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to turn over information about her role in the Trump administration’s policy to separate immigrant children from their parents at the border.
She’s asked the Republican Chairman of the Banking Committee to postpone Kathy Kraninger’s confirmation hearing until we get this powerfully important information.
So she’s doing everything she can do: Elizabeth is demanding some answers at this 10am confirmation hearing – and she’s placing a hold on Kathy Kraninger’s nomination until we get all the facts.
But let’s be blunt: It’s going to take a grassroots army in Massachusetts and across this country, speaking up and making our voices heard, to make the Senate Republicans delay or block Kathy Kraininger’s nomination.
No one gets through a Banking Committee hearing without answering Elizabeth’s tough questions (just ask the CEO of Wells Fargo). Today, she’s going to do everything she can to hold Kathy Kraninger accountable.
This isn’t about Elizabeth, and it isn’t about politics. It’s about protecting the American people.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau needs a director who will stand up to powerful interests and level the playing field for working families – not someone who fought for, rubber-stamped, or turned a blind eye to Trump policies that have torn families apart.
