Ocaz in line for bank panel spot

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Denis Slat­tery and Michael Mcauliff

Rep. Alexan­dria Oca­sioCortez 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 Bronxborn Demo­crat (left) said late last year she would seek a post on the fi­nan­cial ser­vices com­mit­tee, which su­per­vises banks, lenders, in­sur­ers and cor­po­rate cam­paign dona­tions.

The 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.
