Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in line for a seat on a House panel with the power to probe President Trump’s finances and rein in Wall Street influence in Washington, sources confirmed to the Daily News Friday.
The 29-year-old Bronx-born Democrat said late last year she would seek a post on the Financial Services committee, which covers a variety of money-related issues including supervision of banks, lenders, insurers and corporate campaign donations.
The much sought-after committee is chaired by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has praised Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow progressive freshmen lawmakers and vowed to use the position to dive into Trump’s shady past.
“You’re going to see a new kind of approach in the hearings that we have,” Waters told MSNBC recently. “They’re going to come right out with it. They won’t be ashamed. They won’t be afraid. They really believe in what they’re doing. I think that’s good for the institution.”
Waters, who has served on the committee for over 20 years, is the first woman and the first African American to lead the panel.
Members are also is expected to lead several investigations into the President’s personal finances, along with potential connections between his businesses and Russian oligarchs.
In a few days, Trump will start to undergo an extended, deep, painful two-year-long colonoscopy without benefit of anesthesia. The House Financial Services Committee will crawl up his ass and the asses of his family with a HUGE microscope.
