Brown Statement on President-Elect Trump's SEC Nominee Jay Clayton
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), ranking member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, today issued the following statement on President-elect Trump’s nomination of Jay Clayton for Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
"It's hard to see how an attorney who's spent his career helping Wall Street beat the rap will keep President-elect Trump's promise to stop big banks and hedge funds from 'getting away with murder.' I look forward to hearing how Mr. Clayton will protect retirees and savers from being exploited, demand real accountability from the financial institutions the SEC oversees, and work to prevent another financial crisis."
