WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs released the following statement after President Trump announced his intent to nominate Brian Brooks to be Comptroller of the Currency (OCC):

“The American people sent a clear message in this election: they voted for stability, and they rejected an administration that has failed them in the middle of a public health and economic crisis. President Trump continues to ignore the results of the election and nominate unqualified financial appointees who will interfere with a new administration’s attempts to save the economy. Brian Brooks is not on the side of working people, and his nomination must be rejected immediately.”
