Criticism and Reaction to FSC Communication Control

May 8, 2017 Seth Welborn

A recently-published letter from Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), originally sent in April to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, informed Mnuchin of the Financial Services Committee’s intention to retain control of all communication between the committee and the Treasury. Under the 1967 Freedom of Information Act, Congress is exempt from requests for records and material, and as Hensarling stated, communications between the Financial Services Committee and various branches of government constitute congressional records. The Financial Services Committee’s top Democratic Representative, Maxine Waters (D-California), criticized Hensarling’s letters.
